.promise() after animation not returned properly (working in 1.6.1)

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone:
Component: effects Version: 1.6.2

Blocked by: Blocking:

If there are some nested animations, the promise is not being properly returned, so the .done() action is never executed. I attach some jsfiddle code.

If you change de version to 1.6.1 you will properly see the .done() being executed.

Thanks for your time :)

Confirmed. I would expect the done to be executed at least after the first animation, although the mixture of passing callbacks and using deferreds is odd to me.

actually i found out that the problem is caused by the $(this).remove(). I guess that the promise is destroyed in the .remove() action.

Oh, that makes sense. Sorry I missed it. The data for the promise needs to be on the element so I don't think we can fix this, but it might be something we want to document.

Mmm, then the bug was in jQuery 1.6.1? I think we might still consider it a bug as it was something that (in my humble opinion) was working in the previous version and none of the 1.6.2 changes should have broken it.

Either way, im going to put the remove() in the deferred callback, not in the animation one as i guess it's the proper way to do it.

This is the commit that caused the change in behavior: 3486365062cdc7e8598cea238e67aafa33af7dce

The remove is completed before the deferred is dequeued.

I imagine this may work differently once jQuery.Callbacks is introduced in 1.7.

docs updated for deferred.promise to reflect the above.

I almost feel that removing the element before its animation promises can resolve should probably reject the promise instead of resolve it, but thats just a random thought.
