#7931 closed bug (fixed)

scrollTop and scrollLeft setters return null when called on empty jquery object

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Xavi-
Priority: high Milestone: 1.6
Component: offset Version: 1.4.4
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


Both the $.fn.scrollTop and $.fn.scrollLeft setters return null when called on an empty jquery object. This leads to unexpected null pointer exceptions. Example:

// Causes null pointer exception

This is also inconsistant behavior. Most jquery setters (e.g. height, width, addClass, attr, css, etc...) always return jquery objects.
