issue noticed with $("*",divElement) execution

Issue is in executing $(“*”,div) method. It is not traversing each inner domain elements of div if div has certain pattern of Id.

Visit link for the test application I created.

You can notice that ‘spouse’ dom elements are not traversing if div has id with pattern “FE12[FE23]” but parent dom elements worked fine if div has id with pattern “FE12[0]”

It means it is expecting numeric characters inside brackets in current release of jQuery 1.4.4.

Above example works fine in jQuery 1.4.2.

Can you please reduce this to a more simplified test case?

Thank You! for quick response

I created test case using jsfiddle

In my test case two separate div elements and want to modify id of each div.

Here are logical steps I am following:

  • select each div
  • modify div id with new one by appending [FEIEI2C90] for the first one and [0] for the second one
  • traverse each element to modify each inner element

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project by writing a bug report and providing a testcase!

reduced test case

jQuery has sometimes issues when the id attribute contains meta characters. Here it is triggered as jQuery internally uses the present id attribute to speed up the search. Check on #7533 which (once fixed) should also fix this bug.

There wasn't a 1.4.5 release, was actually 1.5.
