Description

Using jqXHR.responseXML method in IE9RC returns "undefined"

while FireFox 3.6.13 correctly returns: [object XMLDocument]

A simple .XML which is read locally:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<hello>
    <world>earth</world>
</hello>

Read by:

$.ajax({
    url: "hello.xml",
    dataType: "xml",
    complete: function(jqXHR) {
        alert("jqXHR.responseText = " + jqXHR.responseText);
        alert("jqXHR.responseXML = " + jqXHR.responseXML);
    }
});

jsFiddle test case: http://jsfiddle.net/n3vXu/

Kind regards, Yomodo

The xml is undefined because it is null on the native xhr. Could you provide a proper test-case?

Hi,

I need to load a local .xml file, this can be done in FireFox but not in the IE's (also IE8).

In IE I now have to use .responseText first, followed by .loadXML() to creating an [object XMLDocument].

You do realize the xml is most probably already parsed and passed as the first parameter of the success callback, right?

comment:5 Changed 9 years ago by anonymous

Most probably? Both the .success() and .complete() method return "undefined" in IE 8 and 9.

It just doesn't make any sense, both the xml and jQuery are valid. Still in IE the result is not an XML object. I really can't understand why, unless this is a bug in IE.

OK, I tested this on my local webserver using IE9 and it worked flawlessly.

Hi,

Could you please elaborate "what" worked flawlessly?

I guess you did not receive a "undefined" but an "[object XMLDocument]" in Internet Explorer 9?

This test case works for me in IE8, does it work in IE9? I don't have it handy right now.

Does the problem only happen for locally loaded XML files?

Hi, I'm so sorry. Just saw your reply.

YES, your fiddle examples also works in IE9! I'm using this for .HTA's, so yes it would be locally loaded XML files.

Hmm.. If I copy/paste the example and actually load a real xml file, locally the .responseXML is still "undefined"
