Child selector bug

Reported by: LosT Owned by: john
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.3.1
Component: selector Version: 1.3
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Child selector in the attached file has a very strange (and buggy) behaviour, it's broken by markup which shouldn't interfere.

Broken in: FF3, IE6/7, Opera 9

Works in: Safari 3, Opera 10

jQuery 1.2.6 was fine

It works for me, in both cases the expected element is selected. But the coloring is a bit misleading.

Sorry, I was in a hurry and I uploaded the wrong files. I just reuploaded them.

My issue is that the selector (.m2>li>b) should add the red background only on the first "test" (B tag) and not on all three Bs inside.

The strange thing is that this behaviour is triggered by a B outside the first ul that should be checked (the one with class m2). Without that all goes fine.

Those elements are red, even if you don't use any javascript.

Changed January 14, 2009 08:34PM UTC by LosT comment:4

I re-uploded the files without the styles, sorry for thet, it was a mistake.

Changed January 14, 2009 08:39PM UTC by balazs.endresz comment:5

Still working fine. Try this: jQuery('.m2>li>b')[0] in Firebug!

Changed January 14, 2009 08:40PM UTC by balazs.endresz comment:6

Sorry, rather this: jQuery('.m2>li>b')

Changed January 14, 2009 08:42PM UTC by LosT comment:7

hmmm... for me it's wrong, it selects 3 elements instead of 1

Oh, sorry, I was testing with an earlier build, you're right!

This issue has appeared in 1.3rc1, b2 was fine.

i also have this problem using

  $('div.editable > div').css('border','green 1px solid');

all divs on the page are given a green border, whereas

  $('.editable > div').css('border','green 1px solid');

need: ReviewTest Case

Changed January 16, 2009 05:55PM UTC by adamh comment:12

Added my own test case, which I am guessing is the same bug (or at least closely related)

resolution: → fixed
status: newclosed

Thanks for the test cases, everyone. It was a rather obscure bug, but I just fixed it:

Will be merging in to jQuery shortly.
