Jquery v1.3.2 find element by attribute

jquery

I need to find and iterate through all child elements that have specific attribute. The following code worked fine in jquery 1.2.6, but throws exception in 1.3.2

$(parentElement).find('*[@someAttributeName]').each(function(index){
    doSomething(this);
});

What is the correct way to achieve that?

Best Solution

Just get rid of the @, I believe.

$(parentElement).find('[someAttributeName]').each(function(index){
    doSomething(this);
});

From the jQuery selector docs:

Note: In jQuery 1.3 [@attr] style selectors were removed (they were previously deprecated in jQuery 1.2). Simply remove the '@' symbol from your selectors in order to make them work again.
