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 jQuery 0 GIT version to ensure the issue still exists.

Be sure to use a non-minified version of jQuery.

Likely a duplicate of #8052

I don't think so. Looks like the code in question is inside the .append() method. The this.nodeType check. But we need a test case!

Changed February 11, 2011 08:45AM UTC by roelf comment:4

I'm using the non-minified version, and the error is at line 5072, char 21, so indeed the this.nodeType check.

I'll try to deduct a test case from my current code.

btw this happens in IE, not FF or Chrome. I'm using IE8+compatibility mode.

Running this code:


Loop each construct tag


function ()


Grab data

var jC2_events = $(this).html().split('\\n');



var jC2_html = '';

Add wrapper tags

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_Outer">';

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_Toolbar">';

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_HelpBox"><a href="#">Txt</a></div>';

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_HelpBox"><a href="#">?</a></div>';

jC2_html += '</div>';

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_Container">';

var jC2_EventNum = 1;

Loop each event

for(var jC2_looper = 0; jC2_looper < jC2_events.length; jC2_looper++)


Check for blank lines (first condition in if is IE fix)

if(jC2_events[jC2_looper] && jC2_events[jC2_looper].trim().length > 0)


var jC2_eventData = jC2_events[jC2_looper].trim();

// Check for comment

if(jC2_eventData.substring(0,1) == '#'){

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_EventComment">' + jC2_eventData.substring(1,jC2_eventData.length) + '</div>';


Split event into components

var jC2_components = jC2_events[jC2_looper].split(':');

Event wrapper

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_EventNum">' + jC2_EventNum + '</div>'

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_EventWrapper">';

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_EventObject">' + jC2_components[0].trim() + '</div>';

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_EventBreak"></div>';

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_EventDesc">' + jC2_components[1].trim() + '</div>';

jC2_html += '</div>';


jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_ActionWrapper">';

Loop remaining params

var jC2_actionCount = 0;

for(var jC2_looper2 = 2; jC2_looper2 < jC2_components.length; jC2_looper2++)


var jC2_actionData = jC2_components[jC2_looper2].trim();

// Check for comments

if(jC2_actionData.substring(0,1) == "#"){

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_ActionComment">' + jC2_actionData.substring(1, jC2_actionData.length) + '</div>';




var jC2_actionClass;

if((jC2_actionCount%2) == 0){

jC2_actionClass = 'jC2_Odd';


jC2_actionClass = 'jC2_Even';


jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_ActionLeft"></div>';

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_ActionDesc ' + jC2_actionClass + '">' + jC2_actionData + '</div>';

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_Clear"></div>';




jC2_html += '</div><div class="jC2_Clear"></div>';





// End wrappers

jC2_html += '</div>';

jC2_html += '<div class="jC2_FooterInfo"><div class="jC2_Scirra"><a class="jC2_AS" href=""></a> - Software in Motion</div>Generated with <a class="jC2_AF" href="">JConstruct 1.0</a></div>';

jC2_html += '</div>';





With this HTML:


System:Every tick:Set width to Y-100:#A comment:Set angle to Atan(Self.X-Mouse.X):Finish it

#This is a comment

Sprite:On event:Do this:Do that:Do something else

Clock:Ticks and chimes:Do something:Do it again!:Add one


Throws the error in IE

Pasting code in the ticket is not a useful test case. Please follow the bug reporting guidelines and use jsFiddle.

Changed February 21, 2011 10:32AM UTC by ottuzzi comment:7

I can reproduce this problem too on IE8.

On they suggest that this is a problem about IE8 not handling try/finally block without catch in function resolveWith but the suggested fix does not seem to work for me.

Please consider that I am an absolutely noob in JS!



Changed February 21, 2011 11:09AM UTC by ottuzzi comment:8

Using the non-minified version of jQuery I had a tip from IE8 indicating a known KB article pointing on my own error.

Because we get so many tickets, we often need to return them to the initial reporter for more information. If that person does not reply within 14 days, the ticket will automatically be closed, and that has happened in this case. If you still are interested in pursuing this issue, feel free to add a comment with the requested information and we will be happy to reopen the ticket if it is still valid. Thanks!
