#8482 closed bug (fixed)

position() on AREA element errors in IE (tested IE 7 and 8)

The following works in Firefox but not IE (tested 7 and 8).

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js"></script>
<img id="logo" src="http://static.jquery.com/files/rocker/images/logo_jquery_215x53.gif" usemap="#imgmap">
<map name="imgmap" id="imgmap">
<area shape="rect" coords="0,0,200,50" onclick="alert($(this).position().top);return false;">

The problem is with the offsetParent function. In this function, doing jQuery.css(offsetParent,"position") on the MAP element seems to error out in IE.

This is the reason some of the tooltip plugins like the JQuery Tools tooltip plugin don't work.

Confirmed. Seems to exist going as far back as 1.3.2, but does not exist in 1.2.6

Edge: http://jsfiddle.net/rwaldron/hceHw/1/ 1.3.2: http://jsfiddle.net/rwaldron/hceHw/4/ 1.2.6: http://jsfiddle.net/rwaldron/hceHw/5/

The issue is at line 228 of src/offsets.js

	position: function() {

	parentOffset = rroot.test(offsetParent[0].nodeName) ? { top: 0, left: 0 } : offsetParent.offset();

this may be related to this: http://blogs.korzh.com/progtips/2008/07/02/ie-quirk-offsetparent-of-dom-element-added-into-document-body.html Seeing that the example has no doctype declaration... IE Quirks mode is a scary place.

The test cases from rwaldron have an HTML5 doctype in jsFiddle so I don't think that's it.

Fix #8482, offsetParent should not return null. Closes gh-847.
