Morph to class not working in Chrome

Reported by Slekx | February 23rd, 2011 @ 06:26 AM | in 1.4.0 (closed)

I'm not sure if this is an issue with MooTools or with Chrome, but here is the setup:


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <script src='mootools.js' type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src='hover.js' type="text/javascript"></script>
    <div class="btn"></div>


window.addEvent('domready', function() {
    var myElement = $$('.btn')[0];
    myElement.morph('.hover');                           // This doesn't work
    //myElement.morph({ 'background-color': '#009' });   // This works
    //myElement.set('class', 'hover');                   // This also works


.btn {
    width: 200px;
    height: 100px;
    background-color: [#999](/projects/2706/tickets/999 "Ticket #999");
.hover {
    width: 200px;
    height: 100px;
    background-color: [#009](/projects/2706/tickets/009 "Ticket #009");

Now, when you try to view index.html in FireFox, it works as expected (the red box morphs into black). But, when you try to view the same file in Google Chrome v8.0.552.237, nothing happens (the box stays red). There are no errors in my JS console, and I've tried it on Ubuntu and Windows with the same results. Any idea why this could be?

    One other interesting thing: it works in JSFiddle:

    Also, I'm using MooTools v1.3 with compatibility for the above code.

    • State changed from “new” to “invalid”
    • Milestone set to 1.4.0
    • Milestone order changed from “888” to “0”

    Feel free to reopen if you can provide an example on jsfiddle (or online somewhere else) that fails. All I can see on jsfiddle is that it works.

    I had a smiliar issue, where the code worked in JSFiddle but not locally.

    I found then that if I have the .hover class inside the HTML code, it works.
    If I just have the .hover class defined in an external CSS file (with href load) the morph doesn't work in Google.
