Has Attribute not working in filter/children/siblings

Reported by: Owned by: timmywil
Priority: blocker Milestone: 1.7
Component: selector Version: 1.6
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

When attempting to match empty attributes in filter() and equivalent functions, the Has Attribute selector fails in all browsers unless an equals sign is used:

[tag] fails

[tag=] works

        <td data-info=""></td>
        <td class='test'></td>

console.log($('td.test').siblings('td[data-info]'));    // Why does this not work when
console.log($('td.test').parent().find('td[data-info]')); // This works
console.log($('td.test').siblings('td[data-info=]'));     // And this works

console.log($('td.test').siblings().filter('td[data-info]'));     // This doesn't work either.
console.log($('td.test').parent().children('td[data-info]')); // Neither does this.

let's handle this has attribute stuff in 1.7.

Just to be sure we're all clear here... The has attribute selector *will* select elements with empty attributes when doing jQuery('[emptyAttribute]'). It is only filter and friends that fail in this regard. The inconsistency is as confusing as anything. Considering all the attr() work in 1.6, it would be nice to not have to wait for 1.7 for a fix to an attribute-related bug.

We have seen problems with straight selections. It's not specific to filter or related methods. This needs to wait until 1.7 as Sizzle will start using jQuery's attribute/property handling for consistent selectors across the board.

Override Sizzle attribute retrieval with jQuery.attr. Fixes #5637, #7128, #9261, #9570, #10178.

Bug fixed on the side: $(window).is('a') was throwing an exception. Fixes #10178.
