#1440 closed bug (fixed)

.focus() doesn't fire for 'a' (anchor) element

Reported by: rworth Owned by: john
Priority: major Milestone: 1.1.4
Component: event Version: 1.1.3
Keywords: focus event anchor Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


This is a regression from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3.x:

<a id="myLink">This should be focused.</a>

<script type="text/javascript">

$(function() {




Expected: The link receives focus, visible by an outline

Actual: The link does not receive the focus

Cause: I've traced this to the trigger: function jQuery\event\event.js (r1765, line 132)

-if ( fn && val !== false )

+if ( fn && val !== false && !jQuery.nodeName(element, 'a') )

If something is broken we will need a test case. This one works fine for me:


You *must* have an href for the element to be focusable.

You should write like that

<script type="text/javascript"><![CDATA[

$(window).load(function () {
