Description

Hi folks, using the following code, from jQuery 1.5.1:

$.get(xml_file).success(function(data, textStatus, jqXHR)) {

    alert(data);
}

The returned result seems to be:

On IE8 data is an "[object]"

On IE9 data is an "[object Document]

I guess it should always either be: "[object]" or: "[object Document]", not a mixture as this breaks code.

Regards, Yomodo

That is just the .toString interpretation of the data argument, which shouldn't necessarily break any code. Can you provide a test case that shows where this can be significant?

I used a typeof comparison:

if (typeof === "[object]") if (typeof === "[object Document]")

That's when my existing code broke.

Replying to Yomodo:

I used a typeof comparison:

if (typeof === "[object]") if (typeof === "[object Document]")

That's when my existing code broke.

Sorry my previous post was considered SPAM??

I've "refined" the actual bug:

$.get(xml_file).success(function(data, textStatus, jqXHR)) {

alert(data.xml);

}

In IE8 this will alert the complete XML document. In IE9 it will alert: undefined.

Is this an HTA again? Can you post a jsFiddle for this?
