no class morphing with 1.3 no-compat

Reported by kaito | November 1st, 2010 @ 03:54 PM | in 1.3.1 (closed)

Using Fx.Morph seems not to work when a css class is given in mootools 1.3 (no compat).
If you try it, you always get the error:

Element.Styles.each is not a function


<style type="text/css">
.test {
.a {
<div class="test">abc</div>
window.addEvent('domready', function() {

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”
    • Milestone set to 1.3.1
    • Assigned user set to “Christoph Pojer”
    • Milestone order changed from “817” to “0”

    We have fixed this for MooTools Core 1.3.1. You can find the fixes in our GitHub repository in Fx.CSS.js. As a workaround you can use 1.3 with compat.

    Using 1.3 with compat. This doesnt morph in IE6,7,8 or 9. Latest versions of Chrome, FF, Opera, Safari all fine

    sorry to be more helpful:

    var morphFx = new Fx.Morph(li, {
        duration: this.options.openList, 
        transition: this.options.openListTran,
        onComplete: function(){
    morphFx.start('#picture_box_image_selector li.image_selected');

    the oncomplete fires but the transition between the below css doesnt occur

    #picture_box_image_selector li {
        list-style-type: none;
        margin-bottom: 5px;
        padding: 3px 6px;
        width: 206px;
        background-color: #929292;
        height: 32px;
        cursor: pointer;
        /* IE */
        float: left;
        clear: left;
    #picture_box_image_selector li.image_selected {
        background-color: #CC6600;
        height: 111px;
        cursor: auto;

    lighthouse has performed some weird formatting of my css (that isnt the problem)

    and a bit more this works in all IE with (so must be a class issue)

        'background-color': '#CC6600',
        'height': '111px',
        'cursor': 'auto'

    The fix is actually in Element.Style.js for the 1.3.1 branch. That's where the change to use Hash for Element.Styles was made. The call to Element.Styles.each will then work in Fx.CSS.js.
