#2939 closed bug (fixed)

Selectors using style attribute broken

Reported by: remysharp Owned by: flesler
Priority: major Milestone: 1.3
Component: selector Version: 1.2.5
Keywords: selector style Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:




Using the style attribute in the selector either returns the wrong number of results or throws exception.

Tested in FF2 and Safari (test above makes use of console.log).

Example selectors broken:

$(div[style]); returns total number of elements regardless of result

$(div[style="color"]); throws exception

I think I've found a/the fix, but I've only been able to test on a Mac so far, Opera 9*, Safari 3, FF2 - not IE testing as yet, all browsers give the right result.

  • Opera gives almost the right results. It certainly counts the attribute correctly, but if you're pulling the style from <div style="color: red;" /> it translates it to "color: #ff0000" (sans semi-colon) which means it doesn't match some of the selectors - however colour aside, it fixes Opera.

File: src/selector.js rev: 5696

Change line 339 from (note intentional spaces in OR to prevent formatting):

if ( z == null | | /href|src|selected/.test(m[2]) )


if ( z == null | | /style|href|src|selected/.test(m[2]) )

Fixed at [5795].

This made me realize of a possible optimization: #3194.
