I am try to run through a Web Form tutorial but I am having a few problems. One of which is when I go to reference the "innerText" method of get ElementById, the method does not appear in intellisense. I am new to this so I am wondering if something is not set up properly in VS 2005 or I am missing some sort of reference.

Any ideas?

'innerText' is not supported by Firefox.  'innerHTML' is a better choice for most things.

Hmm.  Try removing that '0' between the double-quote and the parenthesis.  I don't believe it belongs there.  Not all properties may be supported to work with the code that gets gernerated.  ??

Dave,

Yes, the "0" is just a typing error, removing it makes no difference. I have decided to uninstall VS 2005 and run the install again. I am hoping this will fix the problem, otherwise I have no idea where to go next

Hi,

Before you uninstall your VS 2005 have look on snapshot I have attached. And you can see that this snapshot is not showing hasChildNodes (for e.g. but the same is in your VS 2005). But it's showing innerText which is not in your VS 2005.

So this point made me to think that this is difference of Edition. I am having VS 2005 Professional edition with details showing as:

Microsoft Visual Studio 2005
Version 8.0.50727.42  (RTM.050727-4200)
Microsoft .NET Framework
Version 2.0.50727 SP1


when I tried to look for same from Help option in Menu bar -->About Microsoft Visual Studio.

So final conclusion this is the Edition specific features. And this would be my answer for your question I am also missing the "DefaultCleintScript" property from the DOCUMENT .

Regards,
VSS

Hi King2002,

You are correct it work for bothe innerText and inneHTml, dispite the fact it is not included in the intellisense drop down. Are you able to explain to me why I do not have these options in the drop down and why I have a number of others which don't appear to be standard?

Is there a setting or reference that needs to be set somewhere?

Regards,

Nathan

Hi VSS,

That was it. Once I changed the setting to Internet Explore 6.0, innerText and innerHTML appeared in Intellisense. The default setting was XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

Thanks

Note, this also solved the DefaultClientScript issue I was having with the DOCUMENT in my other question
