dojox.lang.utils.coerceType() fails for functions in IE8

Reported by: skaterkfbs Owned by: Eugene Lazutkin
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.13

Blocked By: Blocking:


There's some bug where IE won't return the function in an eval() command unless it's being assigned. I was able to get this function working as I expected by changing line 29 of /dojox/lang/utils.js


return eval('(' + source + ')');


var result;
return eval('result = (' + source + ')');

Test case:

var a = "function(){}",
b = function(){};
c = dojox.lang.utils.coerceType(b, a);

Current Result:

typeof c === 'undefined'

Expected Result:

typeof c === 'function'

It looks like this problem was resolved with IE9 as long as the 'Document Mode' is 'IE9 standards'
