View Full Version : Javascript onclick not working in IE

01-25-2011, 05:09 PM
Hey everyone,
I am having troubles with my form not working correctly in IE. I have onclicks for different parts of my site. I am trying to use onclick and divs to make this happen. Can some look at my code and help me out?

<script type="text/javascript">
function switchFS(obj) {
var fset,i,fsclass;
fsclass = obj;
for ( i=0; i<fset.length; i++) {
if ((fset[i].getAttribute('class') != "user") && (fset[i].getAttribute('class') != fsclass)) {
fset[i].style.display = "none";
} else {
fset[i].style.display = "block";


<body id="submitform">
<div id="container">
<div id="header">
<?php include($dirprefix . "external/include/header.html"); ?>
</div><!-- end header -->
<div id="maincontent">
<?php include($dirprefix . "external/include/menu_inactive.html"); ?>

<div id="bodycontent">
<div id="bodyleftcol">

<label for="distributorship">Zimmer distributorship:
<input type="text" name="distributorship" value="" required="required" /></label>

I have added the javascript and the section of code where the user picks how they are. Once you click on one of the users in IE the form goes away.

IE6 definitely has problems with getAttribute.

if ((fset[i].className != "user") && (fset[i].className != fsclass)) should work.
