    Unhappy Javascript code not working fine in IE8.

    I have embedded a sidebar menu in the web page , Although it is working fine with Mozilla firefox , but in IE8 I am facing problem what is happening is :

    - I am not able to select submenu item options in IE8( It disappears as
    soon as I point cursor on it).
    - When I select a menu item having a number of submenu items. then a
    space is created between menuitems vertically which look awkward.

    But when I tried on firefox8.0 , it is working fine.

    Here is the code snippet of javascript :

    Code:
       <script type="text/javascript">
    
        //Nested Side Bar Menu (Mar 20th, 09)
        //By Dynamic Drive: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/
    
        var menuids=["sidebarmenu1"]; //Enter id(s) of each Side Bar Menu's main UL, separated by  commas
    
        function initsidebarmenu(){
        for (var i=0; i<menuids.length; i++){
        var ultags=document.getElementById(menuids[i]).getElementsByTagName("ul");
        for (var t=0; t<ultags.length; t++){
        ultags[t].parentNode.getElementsByTagName("a")[0].className+=" subfolderstyle";
    	
        if (ultags[t].parentNode.parentNode.id==menuids[i]) //if this is a first level submenu
        ultags[t].style.left=ultags[t].parentNode.offsetWidth+"px"; //dynamically position first 
    
        else //else if this is a sub level submenu (ul)
        ultags[t].style.left=ultags[t-1].getElementsByTagName("a")[0].offsetWidth+"px";
    
        //position menu to the right of menu item that activated it
        ultags[t].parentNode.onmouseover=function(){
        this.getElementsByTagName("ul")[0].style.display="block";
        }
        ultags[t].parentNode.onmouseout=function(){
        this.getElementsByTagName("ul")[0].style.display="none";
        }
        }
        for (var t=ultags.length-1; t>-1; t--){ //loop through all sub menus again, and use  "display:none" 
        ultags[t].style.visibility="visible";
        ultags[t].style.display="none";
        }
        } 
        }
    
        if (window.addEventListener)
        window.addEventListener("load", initsidebarmenu, false);
        else if (window.attachEvent)
        window.attachEvent("onload", initsidebarmenu);
    
        </script>
    The corresponding menu items are :

    Code:
         <div class="sidebarmenu">
         <ul id="sidebarmenu1">
         <li><a href="#">Checklist>> </a>
         <ul>
         <li><a href="#">Create</a></li>
         <li><a href="#">Verify</a></li>
         <li><a href="#">Approve</a></li>
         </ul>
         </li>
         <li><a href="#">Status of Review</a></li>
    
         <li><a href="#">Generate Report</a></li>
    
         </ul>
    
         </div>
    Will appreciate any help in this regard.

    thanks.

    I think you mean:

    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/cs...side_bar_menu/

    That works fine here in IE 8. 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.
