This is only an issue with IE.

Doesn't seem to be related to DOM manipulations, at least there doesn't seem to happen any DOM element movements.

Considering this affects just radiobuttons in IE, it should be easy enough to implement a workaround (store the state before close, restore it on open).

Though about checkboxes, but likely related: (search for "checkbox" to get to the right section)

jQuery UI 1.8.1 uncompressed version.


line 279(dialog open)


In IE6, "append" resets radio button selection.

Test Code:

$("#testButton").click(function () {

But I don't know what the line 279 means.

line 278

if ( {

...Making uiDialog the last child of body to moveToTop?

But in line 284


...Appending uiDialog to the DOM-Tree?

But in line 60(dialog _create)


...already appended?
