Buttonset and applet error

Reported by: floepi Owned by:

when using a Java applet and buttonset I get an "has no public field or method named htmlFor" error which is very similar to this one


I fixed the error by adding in line 199 of the jquery.ui.button.js a LABEL prefix. Otherwise the buttonset tries to access the applet and throws an type Error. I think it has to do with the expandos or something.

this.buttonElement = this.element.parents().last()

.find( "label[for=" + this.element.attr("id") + "]" );

The jquery core contains some logic to prevent this problem in line 995 of 1.4.2

noData: {

"embed": true, "object": true, "applet": true


but I am not sure why this is not working for the buttonset.

Hope that helps.
