#3788 closed bug (wontfix)

outerWidth returns 0 when parent item is hidden

Reported by: slifty Owned by: brandon
Priority: major Milestone: 1.3
Component: dimensions Version: 1.2.6
Keywords: outerWidth hidden Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


When an item's parent has display set to none, outerWidth() returns 0. This makes the method unreliable.


<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {



</script> <div style="display:none">

<div id="test" style="width:500px">You can't read me!</div>

As a note -- the documentation says that outerWidth will work for items that are hidden, which is why this behavior seems unexpected.

I've updated the docs to clarify that the methods don't support parent-hidden elements.
