#6177 closed bug (fixed)

Effects won't animate if there's a > selector

With this code:

#contact > .myDiv {
	height: 478px;

<div id="contact">
  <div class="myDiv">

var mydiv = ...'blind', 'slow', function() {....

mydiv is shown, but not animated.

If I change to code to:

#contact > .myDiv {

<div id="contact">
  <div class="myDiv" style="height: 478px;">

var mydiv = ...'blind', 'slow', function() {....

It animates correctly. This seems to be reproducible every time that the attributes that need to be modified for animating is defined in a CSS selector with a ">". (and it's not limited to blind).

This is because the animated element has to be wrapped during the animation, so the selector no longer finds the element being animated.

I'm not sure if we will ever be able to do anything about this problem. Going to leave it open a while longer...
