peeps, given the following markup

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="assets/style_images.css"><!-- MY CSS -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="assets/big_images.js"></script>
        <div class="car_model_description">

            </ul>
            <div class="clear"></div>
        </div><!-- END OF THUMBNAILS -->

and the following external script

function changeImage(image,caption){
    var newImage=document.getElementById("placeholder_image");
    document.getElementById("caption").innerHTML=caption;
    newImage.src=image;

}

could anybody let me know why this wouldn't work in IE7 and 8? It is fine in every other browser but in IE7 and 8 the script doesn't run, and the images don't change. #
Basivcally when I click on a thumbnail the big image (the placeholder) gets replaced with whatever is passed as a paramenter to the javascript function as well as the paragraph
Has anybody got a clue? No error or warning is given

thanks

As said before I needed to add some fade to it: when I click on the image I want the big image to fade in nicely, so I modified my script to be

function changeImage(image,caption){
    var newImage=document.getElementById("placeholder_image");
    document.getElementById("caption").innerHTML=caption;
    $('#'+ newImage).attr('src','image').fadeIn();  

}

thinking I could change the src property of the script with the attr() method. I don't want to cause confusion, so if you think it is better to open a separate thread I will put this in there
thanks

Hmz... "Unknown runtime error", interesting.

As for the fade, it doesn't work because first you change the source on a visible element, and then try to fade it in. It does work if you fade in a non-visible element. Perhaps part of my demo here will help.

thank I will have a look at that and post back if any problem.
About the runtime error, shouldn't I get that on other browsers as well as IE's? What do you think it is causing IE's to behave like that?
thanks

I have no clue. Some threads say you can't set innerHTML in IE. I suggest you use the jQuery html() function for it.

really?! Gosh, I am sure I have used innerHTML before in IE's. Ok thanks for that
