I am not sure if this can be considered a bug or not, maybe just unexpected behavior within the library.

Here is the code I am working with:

$j('#addProduct').click(function() {

$j('input[name*=\\\\[txtProductQuantity\\\\]]').each(function() {

$j('input[name*=\\\\[txtProductQuantity\\\\]]').bind('blur', function() {

if ($j(this).val()) {

var x = $j(this).attr('id').replace('txtProductQuantity','txtProductPrice');

alert(x+' => '+$j('input[name^='+x+']').attr('name'));





As you can see the click event executes a selector to bind events too. During the bind process function execution I am replacing the bind name with another at which time I attempt to get the name attribute.

For whatever reason it reverts back to the 'txtProductQuantity' prior to being replaced with 'txtProductPrice' and assigned to 'x'.
