IE7 'getAttribute' error

Priority: undecided Milestone: None

Blocked by: Blocking:

In IE7 I'm getting the error: "Object doesn't support property or method 'getAttribute'"

That happens because in this code seccion, that is called in IE7, is been used return "elem.getAttribute(name, 4);" instead of "elem.href;"

Some attributes require a special call on IE

if (! {

// href/src property should get the full normalized URL (#10299/#12915)

jQuery.each(["href", "src"], function (i, name) {

jQuery.propHooks[name] = {

get: function (elem) {

return elem.getAttribute(name, 4);
