View Full Version : Text and Image Crawler - Tables stop ticker working in IE7?

05-14-2010, 06:32 PM
1) Script Title: Text and Image Crawler

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/crawler/index.htm

3) Describe problem: Hi I use the following code so that I can use tables to add text under the images in the ticker:

<div class="marquee" id="mycrawler">
<table><tr><td><img src="test-image-1.jpg" /></td><td><img src="test-image-2.jpg" /></td><td><img src="test-image-3.jpg" /></td></tr><tr id="text"><td>image 1</td><td>image 2</td><td>image 3</td></tr></table>

But now the ticker doesnt work on IE6 and IE7 just says the code below:

The error message says:
Message: Object required
Line: 70 (says line 69 in ie8 compatible (ie7 mode)
Char: 3
Code: 0

Any Ideas on how to fix this?

Place your marqueeInit function outside all tables and after the crawler it is meant for. If that's too confusing, place it as the last thing before your closing </body> tag.

There could be other problems.

If you want more help:

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