Non-text xhr responses causing error in xhr.responseText access

Reported by: ct Owned by: ct
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: unfiled Version: 2.0.2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:



jQuery (2.0.2 and 1.10.1) accesses xhr.responseText via typeof. This causes errors if there is an unorthodox response type (e.g. ArrayBuffer).

For me, this happens in Google Chrome 27.0.1453.110 on Linux.

Here's an example from 2.0.2:

// Support: IE9
// #11426: When requesting binary data, IE9 will throw an exception
// on any attempt to access responseText
typeof xhr.responseText === "string" ? { <<<< Fails here in Chrome
  text: xhr.responseText   <<< I guess in IE9, it failed here.					} : undefined

I'm not sure what kind of error to which you're referring. Have you considered a custom converter for your use case? http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.ajax/#extending-ajax
