#7941 closed bug (worksforme)

setting .val('') for an input type="hidden" makes it inaccessible in future calls.

Description

If I set the value of an input type="hidden" using $("#id").val() then future attempts to set val() fail.

This is verified by using FireBug/FireFox v3.6.

Steps to reproduce:

1) create a simple form with an input type="hidden" in it.

2) using the jQuery selector by id, set the hidden field's value using .val()

3) at any later time try to set the hidden field's value using .val('anything'). The value will not be seen in firebug, and a call to .val() returns .

note that the html editor removed the ticks in the parens for val().

it should have been seen like so:

$('#id').val('')

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a reduced jsFiddle test case to help us assess your ticket!

Additionally, test against the latest jQuery release and the jQuery 0 GIT version to ensure the issue still exists. Be Excellent to eachother!

I made a live test case following the description in the report but couldn't verify the described behavior (tested with FF 3.6.13)

I apologize. I have a specific page where this happens consistently but I can't share it with the public domain. When I try to create a simple page for demonstrating the issue it doesn't show the behavior. Very frustrating.

If I can build a proper test case I'll request a re-open on this ticket.
