jQuery UI Tooltip Removing Document Title

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: unfiled Version: 1.9.1

Blocked by: Blocking:

The issue seems to be with jQuery Core, not jQuery UI. When disabling the uiTooltip on

, the document's title (the content of the
tag) is removed as well.

Here's a demo using jQuery 1.9.1 + jQuery UI 1.10.4

I also tried older versions of jQuery UI with the same results.

This is not an issue using jQuery 2.x.

Why are you setting a tooltip on document?

Replying to [comment:1 dmethvin]:

Why are you setting a tooltip on document?

That's a good question. ''I'' wouldn't, but I was trying to help someone in Stack Overflow who was running into this. Ultimately, I agree... the better solution would be to provide a better, more specific, selector.

However... in both versions of the API page for the Tooltip Widget, the only example of its usage uses document as the selector. This implies that, however senseless, document ''should'' work without issues.

So maybe it's not a bug in jQuery, but just a poor example in the API docs...

They're not poor examples, they're examples of delegated tooltips.

I haven't looked into the actual bug yet to determine where the problem is.

The underlying issue is that .attr( "title" ) gets/sets document.title. I'd say that's incorrect now that we have .prop(). jQuery UI will need to be updated, but this ticket shouldn't be about tooltips.

Closing this ticket since it sounds like it would have to be fixed in UI. If there's an existing ticket feel free to post a cross-ref here.
