No such interface supported error on .load() for pop-up window in IE 8

When I create a new window and try to set its load event with .load(), I get a "No such interface supported error" in IE 8.

Test case:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-W3CDTD HTML 4.01EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> <html lang="en"> <head> <title>test</title> <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> function openWindow() {

var newWindow = window.open('test.html', 'newWindow'); $(newWindow).load(function() {

alert('loaded'); alerts 'loaded'; this.document.getElementById('someText').value='loaded'; sets text of 'someText' in new window window.document.getElementById('someText').value='it loaded'; sets text of 'someText' in original window


} </script> </head> <body> <p><button type="button" onclick="openWindow();">Open Window</button></p> <p><input type="text" name="someText" id="someText" value="" /></p> </body> </html>

A Solution: remove the following lines from jQuery.event.add:

For whatever reason, IE has trouble passing the window object around, causing it to be cloned in the process if ( elem.setInterval && ( elem !== window && !elem.frameElement ) ) {

elem = window;


It then works in IE 8. I haven't tested previous versions, I'm wondering if you have a test for IE versions before 8, only have the if above in that case.

My test page never does an alert or anything in Firefox, and get no errors, so I have no idea how to fix that.

I wasn't even sure if this was something that could reasonably be done, but the "more interesting example" at the W3C site seems to indicate it is possible: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/interact/scripts.html#h-18.2.3

It seems like there's a race condition that could prevent it from working reliably. If the opened window loads before the load handler is attached, you won't get any notification. I agree that the code you've identified, which looks for a window object, is at least part of the problem since it is replacing your window with the current document's window.

If you could attach a complete test case showing this work in bare DOM operations, similar to the example at the W3C site, that might help get this bug fixed sooner.

Can you provide a test case that shows it works properly without jQuery?
