jQuery.data throws a script error in certain circumstances.
|Reported by:||dalugadm||Owned by:|
In IE7 and IE8, a script error can occur in certain circumstances:
Error: 'undefined' is null or not an object.
This same code works in FireFox (3.6.18). I have not tried any other browsers. This happens in both 1.8.12 and 1.8.13.
You will notice that if you remove the include for JQuery UI, the error does not occur. So, on the surface, it appears to be some type of interaction between JQuery and JQuery UI.
This error can be recreated with the following test case: http://jsfiddle.net/ZP2T6/
