#5342 closed bug (duplicate)

hidden/visible broken for td/th cells in ie8

Reported by: markw65 Owned by: john
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4
Component: selector Version: 1.3.2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


In ie8, a td or th cell with style "display:none" appears to inherit the size of its parent tr. ie offsetWidth and offsetHeight return the width/height of the tr.

The result is that :hidden and :visible are broken for such cells.

I have an example at http://maps.myosotissp.com/bugs/sort2.html.

The example is really to show how the same ie8 feature breaks sortable - but it reports the number of not(:hidden) td cells. In all browsers except ie8, it reports "nvis=6" (correct). In ie8, it reports "nvis=8".

There is a workaround. Adding "<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />" causes ie8 to report the correct result.

We had a similar issue with visible filters like this:

find('> thead > tr:first > th:visible')

IE8 returned all elements including the elements with display:none

Our quick fix for this one:

In the file jquery.js you can find the visible filter code:

Sizzle.selectors.filters.visible = function(elem){
	return elem.offsetWidth > 0 || elem.offsetHeight > 0;

Add an additional condition to verify the display value.

Sizzle.selectors.filters.visible = function(elem){
	return (elem.offsetWidth > 0 || elem.offsetHeight > 0) && elem.style.display != 'none';

I guess there are more lines of code left to fix all issues. Reason for this is that IE8 stores width values for elements not visible.

Just ran across this issue as well. Here is my little test case - it works in all browsers that I've tested, except IE8:
