.text on input element causes exception in IE

Reported by: ezra@… Owned by: ezra@…
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.4.3

When calling .text(0) on an input element IE throws an exception. appendChild() probably doesn't exists on a input element. It works fine in Firefox.

Calling the appropriate .val(0) function works just fine in all browsers.

I've recreated a test case for this and tested in IE but it appears to be working fine - please also mention the version of IE that you are testing on when replying back.

Very simple test case using jsFiddle


Tested on IE6 and IE8 and both throw an exception.

Also it doesn't matter if the input is of type text or hidden.

Thanks for the report, but this is not a bug. Input elements cannot have children, so your attempt to <input></input> is invalid. If you want to set the value of an element, use .val.
