View Full Version : Explorer error with ajaxtabs

02-16-2008, 11:29 AM
1) Script Title: DD Ajax Tabs

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxtabscontent/

3) Describe problem:
Have now implemented the (really good) Ajax Tabs on a prospect website. All works well in Firefox and Opera, but get an error when loading some content using IE (Internet Explorer) 6 and 7.
The MS Script Debugger tell me it's on this line in ajaxtabs.js:
> document.getElementById(divId).innerHTML=page_request.responseText;
and that the error is an "unknown runtime error".

My guess is that it is something in the page I'm trying to load that interferes with the ajaxtab-script, but have no further ideas...
To see the error live go to http://yabot.net/dev/3.nsf and perform a search from the top right search box...
Any help appreciated or just point me in the right direction.

Change the ddajaxtabs.loadpage to trap the IE error and have had some progress ;)
Still not a really pretty solution but with some more hours and your help (please) I'll get it right.

Ps. Can't we just make IE go away? :p

ddajaxtabs.loadpage=function(page_request, pageurl, tabinstance){
var divId=tabinstance.contentdivid
document.getElementById(divId).innerHTML=ddajaxtabssettings.loadstatustext //Display "fetching page message"
if (page_request.readyState == 4 && (page_request.status==200 || window.location.href.indexOf("http")==-1)){
try {
catch (e) {
// IE fails unless we wrap the string in another element.
var parentElement = document.getElementById(divId);
var wrappingDiv = document.createElement('div');
wrappingDiv.innerHTML = page_request.responseText;
ddajaxtabs.ajaxpageloadaction(pageurl, tabinstance);

The above method work but then all my other scripts on that page doesn't kick in as the ajax-page is in an other place in the DOM.
Seems that IE has a problem with the form-tag...
Giving up for now:mad:
