Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thank you.

There's no way to help you without seeing the code. That error gives a line number. What code is on that line? Where is your webpage? What are you trying to do? Is this a DD script? Is this something you're writing yourself?

At the moment your question has no context. The most I can say is that your code has a problem.

Sorry, it's an internal site (gov't) so I can't link to it.

here's the code that is referred to in the error:


addEvent:function(target, functionref, tasktype){
if (target.addEventListener)
target.addEventListener(tasktype, functionref, false);
else if (target.attachEvent)
target.attachEvent('on'+tasktype, function(){return functionref.call(target, window.event)});
},


it's this script: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/chrome/


here's the entire code:


//** Chrome Drop Down Menu- Author: Dynamic Drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)

//** Updated: July 14th 06' to v2.0
//1) Ability to "left", "center", or "right" align the menu items easily, just by modifying the CSS property "text-align".
//2) Added an optional "swipe down" transitional effect for revealing the drop down menus.
//3) Support for multiple Chrome menus on the same page.

//** Updated: Nov 14th 06' to v2.01- added iframe shim technique

//** Updated: July 23rd, 08 to v2.4
//1) Main menu items now remain "selected" (CSS class "selected" applied) when user moves mouse into corresponding drop down menu.
//2) Adds ability to specify arbitrary HTML that gets added to the end of each menu item that carries a drop down menu (ie: a down arrow image).
//3) All event handlers added to the menu are now unobstrusive, allowing you to define your own "onmouseover" or "onclick" events on the menu items.
//4) Fixed elusive JS error in FF that sometimes occurs when mouse quickly moves between main menu items and drop down menus

//** Updated: Oct 29th, 08 to v2.5 (only .js file modified from v2.4)
//1) Added ability to customize reveal animation speed (# of steps)
//2) Menu now works in IE8 beta2 (a valid doctype at the top of the page is required)

var cssdropdown={
disappeardelay: 250, //set delay in miliseconds before menu disappears onmouseout
dropdownindicator: '', //specify full HTML to add to end of each menu item with a drop down menu

Do you have the same problem on the script's demo page? If not, then this is not a problem with the original code (what you posted is just the original code, right?), so that won't help us. We really will need to see the actual page (or its code, in full) to avoid guessing about the problem (which probably won't help much).

If there is any private information on the page, you're welcome to remove that (just keep the relevant code as-is). One option would be to create a new copy of the page on a different server (even a free one) so that we can view it.
Alternatively you can post the full code for the page (please use [code] tags), but that may discourage others from helping you because it's more work to save it and test it themselves rather than just using your website.

it's not the script it turns out. it's conflicting with something else.

thanks for the help.

With that script, that error often comes from having a menu item that has no drop down but that does have a rel attribute.

I checked that. All the rels are represented. Thanks for your help.

Well, if you still haven't figured it out, or have but need help with a solution, like Daniel says - put up a live demo of the problem. It doesn't have to include any sensitive material. All it has to do is show the problem.

Once we have that, it would probably be fairly easy for us to solve.

I figured it out. I nested another ul into it. Once I removed it to outside it, it fixed it.
