Does the jQuery val() function not work in IE7 & IE8
Joined: Dec 07, 2010
I have some code where I am setting the value of a hidden input using jQuery's val function: $('#myInputId').val(theNewVal); When I step through with the debugger, $('#myInputId').val() has the new value in it.
After the function is complete, some other code is getting triggered (it's in the handler for $('#theForm).submit()) and when I set a breakpoint on the first line, $('#myInputId').val() has the old value in it. What gives? This works fine in other browsers, BTW. I implemented a work around by also setting the text of a hidden span and setting the value of the input on the first line of the submit handler, but this is truly annoying.
