hi all,

I'm experiencing a weird error in IE 6 only.

I have an online form that utilizes jquery validate and jquery datepicker.

The page loads fine but when Jquery is parsed i get the following error:

"Object doesn't support this property or method"

my script is below allong with the includes. hopefully someone can shed some light on this.


<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="http://ajax.microsoft.com/ajax/jquery.validate/1.7/jquery.validate.pack.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/date.js"></script>
<!--[if IE]><script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery.bgiframe.js"></script><![endif]-->
<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/date_picker.js"></script>

<link href="/css/form.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />


<?php include("../includes/header.php"); ?>

	
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function(){
	$("#contactform").validate();

	$(".date-pick").datePicker().val(new Date().asString()).trigger("change");
	

	$("#com_ind").click(function(){
		
		if($(this).val()==="Other"){
			$("#other_ind").show();
		}
			
		else{
			$("#other_ind").hide();
		}
		
	});
	
	$("#enq_area_interest").click(function(){
		
		if($(this).val()==="Other"){
			$("#other_int").show();
		}
			
		else{
			$("#other_int").hide();
		}
		
	});

	
});
</script>

Open in new window

Can you please include the full path of your code files like the following:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.yoursite.com/js/date_picker.js"></script>
<?php include("http://www.yoursite.com/includes/header.php"); ?>

or send a full url of this page if possible.

This will make it easier for us to debug.

Regards

For instance what I can notice is the following line of code which will be used from IE:

<!--[if IE]><script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery.bgiframe.js"></script><![endif]-->

IE will use this file instead /js/jquery.bgiframe.js

$(".date-pick").datePicker().val
this method is not for Datepicker
