Dead dynamic drive forums i got a problem with showing the tooltip in a ie page

I copied youre code but it only works in firefox.

this is the code:


var offsetfromcursorX=12 //Customize x offset of tooltip
var offsetfromcursorY=10 //Customize y offset of tooltip

var offsetdivfrompointerX=10 //Customize x offset of tooltip DIV relative to pointer image
var offsetdivfrompointerY=14 //Customize y offset of tooltip DIV relative to pointer image. Tip: Set it to (height_of_pointer_image-1).

document.write('<div id="dhtmltooltip"></div>') //write out tooltip DIV
document.write('<img id="dhtmlpointer" src="arrow2.gif">') //write out pointer image

var ie=document.all
var ns6=document.getElementById && !document.all
var enabletip=false
if (ie||ns6)
var tipobj=document.all? document.all["dhtmltooltip"] : document.getElementById? document.getElementById("dhtmltooltip") : ""

var pointerobj=document.all? document.all["dhtmlpointer"] : document.getElementById? document.getElementById("dhtmlpointer") : ""

function ietruebody(){
return (document.compatMode && document.compatMode!="BackCompat")? document.documentElement : document.body
}

function ddrivetip(thetext, thewidth, thecolor){
if (ns6||ie){
if (typeof thewidth!="undefined") tipobj.style.width=thewidth+"px"
if (typeof thecolor!="undefined" && thecolor!="") tipobj.style.backgroundColor=thecolor
tipobj.innerHTML=thetext
enabletip=true
return false
}
}

function positiontip(e){
if (enabletip){
var nondefaultpos=false
var curX=(ns6)?e.pageX : event.clientX+ietruebody().scrollLeft;
var curY=(ns6)?e.pageY : event.clientY+ietruebody().scrollTop;
//Find out how close the mouse is to the corner of the window
var winwidth=ie&&!window.opera? ietruebody().clientWidth : window.innerWidth-20
var winheight=ie&&!window.opera? ietruebody().clientHeight : window.innerHeight-20

var rightedge=ie&&!window.opera? winwidth-event.clientX-offsetfromcursorX : winwidth-e.clientX-offsetfromcursorX
var bottomedge=ie&&!window.opera? winheight-event.clientY-offsetfromcursorY : winheight-e.clientY-offsetfromcursorY

var leftedge=(offsetfromcursorX<0)? offsetfromcursorX*(-1) : -1000

//if the horizontal distance isn't enough to accomodate the width of the context menu
if (rightedge<tipobj.offsetWidth){
//move the horizontal position of the menu to the left by it's width
tipobj.style.left=curX-tipobj.offsetWidth+"px"
nondefaultpos=true
}
else if (curX<leftedge)
tipobj.style.left="5px"
else{
//position the horizontal position of the menu where the mouse is positioned
tipobj.style.left=curX+offsetfromcursorX-offsetdivfrompointerX+"px"
pointerobj.style.left=curX+offsetfromcursorX+"px"
}

//same concept with the vertical position
if (bottomedge<tipobj.offsetHeight){
tipobj.style.top=curY-tipobj.offsetHeight-offsetfromcursorY+"px"
nondefaultpos=true
}
else{
tipobj.style.top=curY+offsetfromcursorY+offsetdivfrompointerY+"px"
pointerobj.style.top=curY+offsetfromcursorY+"px"
}
tipobj.style.visibility="visible"
if (!nondefaultpos)
pointerobj.style.visibility="visible"
else
pointerobj.style.visibility="hidden"
}
}

function hideddrivetip(){
if (ns6||ie){
enabletip=false
tipobj.style.visibility="hidden"
pointerobj.style.visibility="hidden"
tipobj.style.left="-1000px"
tipobj.style.backgroundColor=''
tipobj.style.width=''
}
}

document.onmousemove=positiontip

Warning: Please include a link to the DD script in question in your post. See this thread (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6) for the proper posting format when asking a question.

Does the demo page on Dynamic Drive work for you in IE? What OS and IE version are you using?

Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.

Also, be aware that the script credit must be included on the page(s) using the script - I only mention this because the credit is absent from the quoted code in your post.

Then you did something with, or there is some about your implementation that is causing the trouble.
