#5667 closed bug (fixed)

serialize / serializeArray ignores HTML 5 input types

Reported by: skyfex Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.4
Component: ajax Version: 1.4a1
Keywords: serialize html5 Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


When using $(form).serialize, HTML 5 input types are ignored (email, date, datetime, etc.)

It would be much better if serialize worked more like the browsers does, and defaulting to text type if the type is unknown. This makes HTML 5 backwards compatible with most browsers (but not with jQuery in this case).

(Does not seem to be fixed in nightly)

See also enhancement #4668. Serialize should already work properly on non-HTML5 browsers since elem.type=="text" there.

Looks like you've omitted type=datetime-local from the patch.

comment:4 Changed 7 years ago by dmethvin

It matches datetime in the regexp. I debated whether it might be easier to exclude the types we don't want but settled on this.

datetime-local does not work with serializeArray()

    test('serializeArray should handle datetime and datetime-local', function() {
      $('<form id=form><input type=datetime name=date value=d />' +
        '<input type=datetime-local name=local value=l /></form>').appendTo('body');
      var expected =[{name: 'date', value: 'd'}, {name: 'local', value: 'l'}] 
      deepEqual($('#form').serializeArray(), expected);
