Hi

I'm building a site which uses ajax and DHTML heavily to build a frontend. Th frontend has a lot of transparent PNGs for which I use the filter hack to display them in IE6. The issue arises when I'm building a new component in javascript which has transparent PNGs in it. If I build a new div and then position it using javascript the transparent pngs don't display at all !!
Has anyone else come across this ?

Cheers

Please post your code here so that will help to know is somthing wrong in it or not, I have used
transparent PNG and PNG Hack for IE 6 or less
and thats work fine, I don't know but without seen code I can't say whats going wrong...

Below is an example of my problem.

The page initially displays a header button and a div containing a price button which is built using two transparent pngs. The trasparent PNGs use the filter hack and it works fine on the initial page load.

Now if you mouseover the header icon the openDiv() function is called which basically uses javascript to construct another button with the same transparent pngs, and it replaces the first button with the second one. The problem is that the transparent pngs which the button is made of don't appear at all in IE6 !! It works fine in IE7 and firefox. Maybe the filter only gets applied when the page is initially loaded, I don't know. I was hoping someone here might know ?

Any ideas ?

Cheers

Hi Rahul,

Thanks for looking at this. I tried your code and it turns out the the htc script I was using for the transparency hack didn't work properly. I subsituted the one you use above and it worked fine.

Thanks for your help !
