Hello Experts,
I have an animation on the page which triggers when the user click on the icon, it is working fine in FF however, the offset in IE is incorrect, I mean the starting position of the animation.
If you could please see the attached IE screenshot, you would know what I mean here.
Animation for "highfield,ashley" should start from its position (where the name is printed) however, it is starting from some vague position, its target position is in the left Short List Menu where it will go and sits.
Please can you advice me what needs to be done to make it work in both the browsers.
thanks for your help
regards
sam

hello,
i have used the following to make the offset work in IE

var spigot = $(this).after('<div id="' + theId + '_spg" style="left:' + $(this).offset().left + 'px; top:' + ($(this).offset().top-100) + 'px; position: absolute; background:#fef8a5; z-order: 6000; ">' + myTitle + '</div>');
        if($.browser.msie===true)
                spigot = $(this).after('<div id="' + theId + '_spg" style="left:' + $(this).offset().left + 'px; top:' + ($(this).offset().top-80) + 'px; position: absolute; background:#fef8a5; z-order: 6000; ">' + myTitle + '</div>');

 the animation have started appearing from the correct position, however, it is leaving the yellow background behind in IE ....

please can someone advice

wilg32,
i have reverted back the changes for now just to show you the effects I had earlier, I mean, you can either click on individual icons to add the record to the list or you can also add all the record ids to the short list by clicking on the icon in the table header....
i wanted the animation to remove completely for this .addAll event and IE offset, these were the two desired changes ...

hope this helps to understand the situation?

thanks for your help

try:
   var spigot;
 if($.browser.msie===true)
{
spigot = $(this).after('<div id="' + theId + '_spg" style="left:' + $(this).offset().left + 'px; top:' + ($(this).offset().top-100) + 'px; position: absolute; background:#fef8a5; z-order: 6000; ">' + myTitle + '</div>');
}
else
{
 spigot = $(this).after('<div id="' + theId + '_spg" style="left:' + $(this).offset().left + 'px; top:' + ($(this).offset().top-80) + 'px; position: absolute; background:#fef8a5; z-order: 6000; ">' + myTitle + '</div>');
}
$('#'+ theId + '_spg').offset((($('#shortlist').offset().top)-110), (($('#shortlist').offset().left)-0), (anim)?400:1);
  
$(this).animate({opacity: "0.3"}, 500);
