Hi All,

the following script works fine and updates with no issue, except on, wait for it..... Internet Explorer!!!!!

Any advice would be appreciated.

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function showUser(str)
{
if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
  {// code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
  xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
  }
else
  {// code for IE6, IE5
  xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
  }
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function()
  {
  if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200)
    {
    document.getElementById("txtHint").innerHTML=xmlhttp.responseText;
    }
  }
xmlhttp.open("GET","console4.php",true);
xmlhttp.send(null);
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<script>showUser(this.value)</script>

<p><span id="txtHint"></span></p> 

</body>
</html><script type="text/javascript">
      function keepCalling() {
      showHint("")
      window.setTimeout("keepCalling()", 2000) // call the showHint every (2)000 second
      }
      keepCalling()
      </script>

>> Line 34 - there is no declaration of the function showHint
>> LIne 34, 35, 37 - you forgot to end with a ;
>> Line 27 - use <script type="text/javascript"></script>

Might I reccomend you get a javascript error console! I use web dev for firefox - it might display a non standard error which is affecting the IE rendering - failing that maybe a run active objects script?
