#6472 closed bug (fixed)

$.find with attribute contains selector misses results

Reported by: cmdrkeem Owned by: cmdrkeem

Component: selector Version: 1.4.4

See the attached html file for an example.

In the case of a table <table id="table1">

<tr><td>1</td></tr> <tr style="display: table-row;"><td>2</td></tr> <tr><td>3</td></tr>


I would expect the following 2 alert boxes to contain the same count, 1.

alert($("#table1 tr[style*='table-row']").length); alert($("#table1").find("tr[style*='table-row']").length);

This is because of the attribute-vs-property issue, compounded by an IE bug:


It should be possible to match against the domelement.style.cssText property but I agree it's a problem.

Here is another test case :

$('#test *[myattr]').length ) == 2 OK $('#test').find('*[myattr]').length == 1 WRONG $('#test').find('*[myattr=""]').length == 1 OK

If you add another

<div myattr="">third</div> then $('#test').find('*[myattr=""]').length == 2 STILL OK

Please provide a reduced jsFiddle test case, thanks!

Additionally, test against the jQuery 0 GIT version to ensure the issue still exists.

test case works fine in Opera, Chrome and FF (both alerts say 1). In IE6 (IE7/8 ?) both alerts say 0.

Using style is an awful example, given cross browser support. Here's the selector and .find using a regular attr: http://jsfiddle.net/danheberden/E7QH9/1/
