#5868 closed bug (invalid)

:contains() Selector fails to find match when string is passed as a variable

Reported by: gloddy Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4.1
Component: unfiled Version: 1.4
Keywords: contains Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


Passing :contains a direct string works: $('ul li:contains("One")').fadeOut();

But passing that same string as a variable fails:

value_in_variable = "Two"; $('ul li:contains(value_in_variable)').fadeOut();

I've attached a standalone html example file.

This bug can be deleted. I revisited the issue and found it was a syntax mistake. My apologies.
