#4576 closed bug (invalid)

.find not performing properly on an XML document.

Reported by: Tegeril Owned by: Tegeril
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.4
Component: selector Version: 1.3.2
Keywords: find, 1.3.2, getelementsbytagname Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


If you use this ajax call:

var searchstring = "http://www.99restaurants.com/resources/proxy/KnowWhereProxy.php?state=CT";


type: "GET", url: searchstring, dataType: "xml", success: function(obj){ onLoadState(obj);}, error:function(msg,x,y){ alert(msg);}


and then try to parse the resulting XML like this:

function onLoadState(data) {

var jLocations = $(data).find("Location"); jLocations.each(function(intLocationIndex) {

do something



jLocations has a length of 1. If you go var jLocations = data.getElementsByTagName("Location");, jLocations has a length of 16, returning all <Location> tags instead of just the first.

This implementation worked with JQuery 1.2.6.

Rather, the .find implementation worked with 1.2.6, getElementsByTagName is the workaround for 1.3.2. Sorry for the lack of clarification.
