Hello,

We created a javascript drop down menu (select country) which uses jquery, for some reason when we drop it into our joomla template via a custom HTM module it breaks.

We recieve the following errors from IE however we cant figue out what is happening.

Message: 'this.$events[...].keys' is null or not an object
Line: 47
Char: 978
Code: 0
URI: http://www.mazero.com/media/system/js/mootools.js


Message: Object doesn't support this property or method
Line: 73
Char: 1
Code: 0
URI: http://www.mazero.com/media/system/js/caption.js


Message: 'null' is null or not an object
Line: 12
Char: 2
Code: 0
URI: http://www.mazero.com/index.php

Please see http://www.mazero.com/index.php (select country menu top right position).

Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

since you are using both mootools and jquery there will be a conflict for the $, since you have added jquery recently into the module use the noconflict function which will free the $ for mootools usage..

http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.noConflict/

try and see if this solves the problem

you have to include this after the jquery js has been loaded it will at least remove those errors.

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery.noConflict();
jQuery(document).ready(function()
{
	jQuery('#country_menu').clickMenu({arrowSrc:''}); 
});
</script>

Open in new window

I was able to get rid of the errors, I just tried... check the attached file. I am not sure about the mootools error though.

Hey Kadaba,

That has resolved the errors however the menu drop down doesnt fold up.

Thanks

the menu is proper but hiding behind the search... try putting the menu (just for testing) somewhere else on the page. say near the client login and check

I was actually checking in FF and it works... even the file which i sent last, i changed the position of the menu and it worked... So there must be something which is pranky.. I ll have a look at it bit later.. or you can open a new question for that ans see if any one comments.. keep this open until its fixed.

Hai,

I too had an experience with design when using "mootools.js".

I suggest you not to go for "mootools.js" source,kindly refer some other jquery file to implement your functionality.

mootools.js - contains default setting,names and tags which will affect the our way of doing design issues.

Thanks

This partially resolved the issue, there was also problems with the CSS.
