Unable to call chained .update('') on object returned from Builder.node('div') in IE7

Reported by Rob Sterner | August 28th, 2008 @ 05:14 PM

I came across this issue trying to use Builder from within IE7 - the problem didn't occur with Firefox 3, Safari 3, Camino -- you get where I'm going with this.


Builder.node('div', {id:this.options.previousButtonId, className: 'previous'}).update(' ');

I was getting a:

Microsoft JScript runtime error: Object doesn't support this property or method

error. I could construct the new node in a debugger then call .update() on its contents, trying to chain the method calls failed.

Patch seems to be to Prototypify the returned value from Builder.node():

return $(element);

rather than:

return element;

Should I bother submitting a patch/diff for this?
