Element.visible returns falsy true in IE8

Reported by Andriy Godovanets | August 23rd, 2013 @ 05:30 PM

Prototype 1.7.1

  1. Create CSS class

.hidden { display:none !important; }

  1. set this class to HTML element

$("test").visible() === true

The problem in visible method implementation:

function visible(element) {
    return $(element).style.display !== 'none';

This could be fixed to something like

function visible(element) {
    return getRawStyle($(element), "display") !== 'none';

but getRawStyle function located in other space
