Hi,

I am using apache server on my local system [http:\localhost\xy]. Problem is like:-

i have made radio buttons, push buttons and associated actions that are handelled using YAHOO.util.Connect.asyncRequest. Then the actions like displaying results , poping up of other dialogs are handled via mozilla but not through IE. Nothing happens on IE as if there is no action associated with the radio and push buttons.


Hope this is clear . or i should give some samle patch of the application

Thanks
Nidhika

Without code examples of at very least the actions you're speaking of, there's no way of knowing how to debug your problem...what do you mean by actions? Ajax request actions, DHTML-DOM page-write actions ???

If you're trying to write text from Ajax response data Mozilla populates text nodes between elements and IE does not ... this has tripped me up before.

If the Ajax request is simply not working on IE then there might be some issue with the Yahoo utility you're using, since Moz and IE have different HTTP request type objects they use.

... the list goes on.

Please be specific.

thanks

Then the actions like displaying results , poping up of other dialogs are handled via mozilla but not through IE. Nothing happens on IE as if there is no action associated with the radio and push buttons.

You need to capture the action-events using javascript -- something like the following -- for each dynamic element on the page.

<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = init_handlers;

function init_handlers () {
  var bu_list = document.getElementById('bu-list').onchange = function () {
    for ( var i = 0; i < this.length; i ++ ) {
      if ( this[i].selected ) {
        alert( this[i].value );
      }
    }
  };
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<select name="bu-list" id="bu-list">
  <option name="one" value="1">One</option>
  <option name="two" value="2">Two</option>
</select>
</body>

From here you can pass the input values to the Ajax methods and retrieve the response values from your CGI script(s).

Since the information you submitted has 18 JavaScript libraries linked in to it, and the YAHOO code is a terrible mess -- being nice here -- and the code you submitted is the interface for the other Ajax methods ...

Maybe you should find a better Ajax library to use, or learn how to write your own ... then you would have learned a great deal :-)

Either way, there is too much code here and not enough time in the day for me to learn how to use the YAHOO libraries.

Maybe someone with existing experience using these libraries will chime in?

Sorry I couldn't be of more help here.
