Good Afternoon All,

I have a problem with some jquery/javascript that I am trying to write.  This works fine in FF but not in IE.  Imagine that.

some background - I am pasing a function 4 parameters, all strings.  noteid, marLeft, marTop, direction.

I am getting the last two characters from the noteid and assigning them to a pageid.  

I am then trying to get the background-position that is currently assigned to the pageid.  I am using:
var pgBkgd = $("#"+pageid).css('background-position');

in firefox I get something like 0px 80px
in IE I get undefined.

Can anyone help me out here?

Thanks!
Rose

I think it should be .style(background-position) instead of .CSS

Just off the top of my head

IE can be picky when it comes to background values.

You'll get the 2 values independently by using:
.css('background-position-x')
.css('background-position-y')

Unfortunately, FF doesn't like this separation of values.

what we ended up using was:

if($.browser.msie) {
            var bkgdX = $("#"+pageid).css('background-position-x');
            var bkgdY = $("#"+pageid).css('background-position-y');
            var pageBkgd = bkgdX + ' ' + bkgdY;
      } else {
            var pageBkgd = $("#"+pageid).css('background-position');
      }
