#9227 closed bug (wontfix)

Can't change the text of option tab cloned by jQuery's clone method(1.5&1.6,Only the select tag in IE6,7,8)

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: Rick Waldron
Priority: low Milestone: 1.9
Component: manipulation Version: 1.5.2
Keywords: ie7 Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


the html tags is as: <select>

<option value="good">good</option> <option value="good1">good1</option> <option value="good2">good2</option> <option value="good3">good3</option> <option value="good4">good4</option>


my codes is as:

var obj = $("select"); var temp = obj.clone(true); $("body").append(temp); $("option").each(function(){



If you run it,you will watch, the original tag's text changed,bug the cloned option tags' texts can't change.

In IE8, with the Developer's tools,you can see, the text has changed, but users can't see the changed text, they only can see the old text;

sorry,the codes is not right. The real codes is var obj = $("select"); var temp = obj.clone(true); $("body").append(temp); $("select").each(function(){




}); Then, you can't change the Text!

There is another bug,. If you bind a change Event to the first select tag, after clone, the cloned tag's change Event will be trigger twice;

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a reduced test case on http://jsfiddle.net that reproduces the issue experienced to help us assess your ticket.

Additionally, test against the jQuery (edge) version to ensure the issue still exists.

from your log that'is right,but please watch the page.Yes, the text is changed, I can watch the changed text by debug tools, but user can't see the changed text,they can only see the original text!

Because of IE's bug,so jQuery has this bug.But,in version 1.4.2, the method is very well, why you don't use it?

Assigning to the option.text property is the only thing that seems to work, not even innerText updates it. (Remember new Option(text, value) for creating option elements?) This would need to be hard wired into jQuery.fn.text I suppose?

It occurs to me this is another manifestation of the bizarro IE7 issues with cloned attroperty values, like #9905 and #10943. We haven't determined a generalized fix for the problem, my suggested solution above is rather specialized and ugly but should work.

We decided not to attempt shimming jQuery.text for these cases for performance and size issues. The workaround mentioned above works across all browsers if you need it. http://jsfiddle.net/UgV89/14/
