#8309 closed bug (duplicate)

The selector with [value=Assign To] causes an exception

Reported by: jason.jong@… Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: 1.next
Component: selector Version: 1.5
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:



   $("div.messageControlBar > input[value=Assign To]").live("click", AssignToShow);

Exception throw is Uncaught Syntax error, unrecognized expression: [value=Assign To] at line 3583.

It doesnt seem to allow the [value=Assign To] however it worked with previous versions of jQuery.

Created a item in jsFiddle where you can see v1.4.4 works changing the button to red, but in v1.5, it doesn't

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project by writing a bug report.

This isn't a bug. Your selector isn't and never was valid, if this worked in earlier jQuery version it was actually a bug that got fixed.

Check this test case which shows that your selector isn't a valid CSS selector and that you need to enclose the attribute value in quotes. So that I don't need to repeat my self also check this comment
