Hi!

i want a piece of php code to check what type of browser someone is using and make a jquery dialog open if they use MIE.

The dialog works, the php browser check-code works, but i cant get the php-code to open the jQuery dialog window..
What am i doing wrong?

here are the codes i'm using:

thanks!
BROWSER CHECK AND OPEN DIALOG:

<?  
ini_set('display_errors', 'On');
error_reporting(E_ALL);

    if (isset($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']) && 
    (strpos($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'], 'MSIE') !== false))
       echo "<script type=\"text/javascript\">IEuser();</script>";
    else
        echo "Yes, you're not using IE!<br><br>";
?>

Open in new window

OPEN DIALOG:

<script type="text/javascript">
function IEuser() { 
        $('#dialog').dialog('open');
};
</script>

Open in new window

It might be calling it before everything is loaded,

try the following snippet:


<?  
ini_set('display_errors', 'On');
error_reporting(E_ALL);

    if (isset($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']) && 
    (strpos($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'], 'MSIE') !== false))
       echo "<script type=\"text/javascript\">$(document).ready(function (){IEuser();});</script>";
    else
        echo "Yes, you're not using IE!<br><br>";
?>

Open in new window

Is it all versions of IE or just IE6?
Try removing the "type" from your <script> tags, especially for including jquery.

<script language=”javascript” src=”your-path-to-jquery-version.js”></script>
