Bug with IE6: removing a selected attribute raise an error

Reported by: cowa Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.4
Component: core Version: 1.3.2
Keywords: ie6, removeattr Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


my HTML page contains 3 select lists.

1- 1 list containing all the values

2- 1 list showing the selected values

3- 1 list showing the availables values

Double clicking on the 3rd list removes the corresponding value from the 3rd list and adds it from the 2nd and selects it in the 1st.

Double clicking on the 2nd list returns it to the 3rd and deselects it in the 1st.

When double clicking on a value, I get an error in IE6 that I caught with a try/catch in xform-common.js line 49 at the instruction $(this).removeAttr("selected");

Please see the attached sources.

The same code works fine with Firefox 2.

Thanks in advance for the resolution.

That code is outside jQuery. Please reduce this to a test case that shows the problem lies within jQuery. Also, the "selected" attribute is also a "selected" property, that may be causing the issue you are seeing with IE.

When changing the "selected" state of an option via jQuery, use

$().attr("selected", true)
$().attr("selected", false)
