animate function does't cast regex.exec() parameter to string before calling

Reported by: Ryan Owned by: Ryan
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: effects Version: 1.6.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Occasionally an integer is passed to exec that causes the page to crash in IE when using XRegExp (the integer causes XRegExp's call of str.slice to produce an "Object doesn't support this property or method" error).

At first I thought it might be an XRegExp issue but the javascript docs clearly state that a string is expected. Converting the exec argument to a string prior to the call solves the problem.

Line 8159 is the culprit:

parts = rfxnum.exec( val );

should be changed to

parts = rfxnum.exec( val == null ? null : String(val) );

(Environment: 1.6.1 on IE 8 with Windows 7 using XRexExp 1.5)

Is there a test case for this showing the error?

I get the same problem. Forcing string shoud resolve this issue:

parts = rfxnum.exec( String(val) );
