Modal dialog in IE8 causes endless event-loop

Reported by: Wixbit Owned by: Wixbit
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.9.0
Component: ui.dialog Version: 1.7.2

Blocked by: Blocking:

Loading the following page in IE8 and pressing the 'Open Dialog' button will cause an endless resize-event loop.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
	<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
	<title>Default Title</title>
	<!-- JavaScripts -->
	<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
	<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
	<!-- StyleSheets -->
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="" />

<div id="jqd" title="Test!">
	<textarea name="test"></textarea>

<input type="button" value="Open Dialog" onclick="$('#jqd').dialog({ modal: true, width: 'auto' });" />


After loading the page and pressing the button, add a breakpoint to line 7724 in jquery-ui.js (first line in the resize event handler for dialogs) and you will see this point is hit without end.

The infinite loop will be stopped if you outcomment line 7644:

$(window).bind('resize.dialog-overlay', $.ui.dialog.overlay.resize);

This information may help further in fixing the bug.

Cheers, B

I can't reproduce this.

For what it's worth, I was having the same endless event-loop issue in both jQuery-UI 1.8.1 and 1.8.6 in IE8 and commenting out the above line stopped said loop.

Please provide a reduced test case showing the problem.
