:visible and :hidden selectors doesn't take CSS visibility attribute into account.

Reported by habr-user Octane.

Sample code:



<script src="jquery-1.3.2.js"></script>


$(function() {

$('#test').css('visibility', 'hidden');

var visible = $('#test').is(':visible'); → true

var hidden = $('#test').is(':hidden'); → false

alert([visible, hidden]);





<div id="test">test</div>

Additional remark:

visibility CSS style attribute doesn't affect offsetWidth/offsetHeight properties.

It's mostly about what makes sense and how it's documented.


has the same net effect as
, should that return false as well? What about an element positioned
left: -1000px, top:-1000px
which is out of the view port and thus "invisible"?

Ok, bug can be in wontfix state.

I'll update jQuery wiki.
