    Dear Developers,

    there is a bug in _validate method of the Editable widget. There is a line in the code (ln. 30578, kendo.web.js v2012.2.710) which tries to retrieve the input element:

    input = $(':input[' + kendo.attr("bind") + '="' + (isBoolean ? 'checked:' : 'value:') + e.field + '"]', that.element);

    If the field's name starts with 'first' or 'last' (e.g. first_name) the computed selector will be:


    In that case jQuery 1.8.0 can not find the element because the css parser throws an exception:

    Uncaught Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: :input[data-bind="value

    Obviously with jQuery 1.7.1 there is no exception.
    This may be unconfortable in the future.

    Hello Bese,

    We already caught this problem in our tests and notified the jQuery team about it. The bug is in the Sizzle selector engine and has been fixed in jQuery 1.8.1.
