View Full Version : Trouble clicking in a form input using IE

Hey everyone,

I am experiencing a strange problem in IE. I have a form with some input fields; all are of the type 'text'. When the user submits the form, I do a validation check server side and if there are any present, I display an error message beside the field in question. This is displayed using PHP.

My problem is that for the fields that get validated, it is very hard to click on the field to type in. I have to move the cursor to the top, right below the box's border. This happens when the error message is both being displayed and not displayed.

Also it works fine in Firefox...Any ideas?

And we are supposed to know what your code looks like how?

Sorry about that dude...while in the process of posting my code in here, I figured it out lol. To position the error message to the right of the field, I was padding it over from the far left of the form. This blocked out the field. So I just changed it to margin-left.

Thanks anyways :D
