#8772 closed bug (fixed)

Using .attr() to set input type 'range' causes script error in IE9

Reported by: stephband@… Owned by: Timmy Willison
Priority: high Milestone: 1.6
Component: attributes Version: 1.5.2

Blocked by: Blocking:


jQuery versions tested: 1.5.1, 1.5.2

Browser: IE9

System tested: Windows Vista

Test: http://jsfiddle.net/stephband/nYB98/3/

IE9 fails to gracefully handle the setting of unsupported input types. Where other browsers handle unsupported input types gracefully, for example:

jQuery('<input/>', {type: 'sheep'})

IE9 throws an error. Perhaps jQuery could explicitly set the type 'text', or perhaps set nothing at all, when you try to set unsupported types in IE9?

I'm assigning this to timmywil as he is currently writing the attrHooks module. Beyond that, i have not tested this issue.

I'd be happy to help, but perhaps you could correct me on something. Does IE9 still not support range inputs? I don't yet have a VM that can run IE9, but I'm working on getting one. It certainly would be sad to discover that IE9 throws an exception every time you set an unsupported input type.

No, IE9 does not support range inputs. I tested type='range' and type='sheep' :) I will go back and test the other html5 types.
