Bridge function always returns false or this in jquery.ui.widget.js.

Please,look in jquery.ui.widget.js at $.widget.bridge function and the following code inside it:

if ( methodValue !== instance && methodValue !== undefined ) {

returnValue = methodValue;

return false;


That code makes any function call to widget through bridge to return false or this(instance).

I suggest to return returnValue instead of false or comment out the return here.

This is just not true. The return value that you're looking at is inside a .each() callback. The actual return value is at the end of the function and is working just fine.

Please, take a look at lines 118-120. It sets the retrunValue=methodValue and then just returns false that make absolutely no sense!

What makes absolutely no sense is you ignoring what I wrote and assuming behavior of code without actually verifying. As I said earlier, that return statement is inside a .each() callback. It's breaking the loop. Please provide code that shows this is broken if you're convinced that this is wrong.
