#9594 closed bug (duplicate)

attr selectors in find, find nothing

jQuery 1.6 Chrome 11 Mac OS X Snow Leopard JSFiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/ScN4a/


alert(newKeyValueRow.find('input[name~="from"]').length); alert(newKeyValueRow.find('input[name|="bucket_from"]').length); alert(newKeyValueRow.find('input[name]').eq(1).attr("name"))

These output: 1 0 0 bucket_from[0][]

The html is as follows (taken from the developer tools of chrome): <tr class="bucketRow"> <td> <input type="text" name="bucket_to[0]" value=""></td> <td class="bucketValueTD">&lt;= <input type="text" name="bucket_from[0][]" value=""> <input type="button" class="bucket_add_row" value="add value"> </td> </tr>

JSFiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/ScN4a/ (note: I put the alerts into a click of the button.)

As far as I understand, the first two alerts ABSOLUTELY should show the same thing. The third one should as well, but it is a little less obvious, although still fairly obvious.

Duplicate of #9261.

If you insist. The bug referenced appears to refer to the attribute existing, while my bug expands the issue to matching attributes using specific selectors.

You're right, it's not a dup, I think it's invalid.

~= is the "contains word" selector; input[name~="from"] shouldn't match anything because there is no *space-delimited* string from in the markup. http://api.jquery.com/attribute-contains-word-selector/

|= is the "contains prefix" selector; input[name|="bucket_from"] shouldn't match anything because there is no name that is either exclusively that string or prefix that string *followed by a dash*. http://api.jquery.com/attribute-contains-prefix-selector/

It's best to start on the forum with questions like this and only file a bug once you've got some consensus that it's really a bug.

I see now. I misunderstood the use of those 2 functions. Next time I will query the forum before submitting a bug.

Sorry about the false report, and thanks for the reply.
