Experts,

I'm sorry to be part of the long line of "It Doesn't Work in IE" but here goes.

I'm trying to add a polyline to a pair of latlng points.  Works great in Chrome, Opera and FF.

In IE 8 i receive the following:
******************
Webpage error details

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; SLCC2; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E; AskTbARS/5.8.0.12304)
Timestamp: Fri, 25 Mar 2011 08:23:59 UTC

Message: Arg: Fraction out of range (0 to 1 allowed)
Line: 8
Char: 202
Code: 0
URI: http://maps.gstatic.com/intl/en_ca/mapfiles/api-3/4/6a/main.js
**************
The map and the markers seem to render correctly, sort of, but the polyline is definitely missing and any attempt to zoom breaks the thing entirely.

I've searched for solutions and tried different header settings, all of which have no effect.

I need this proof of concept working on IE by Thursday next week

Can you point me to a solution?

Hi there,

Is there any chance that you can provide your source code?

Thanks for your reply.  Here's the source code.  

I found the answer in a Google Forum -- apparently the "Fraction was caused by a strokeOpacity setting that was neither 1 nor 0.

The example that I was working from set the original strokeOpacity value to 5, which IE totally choked on.  The other browsers handled it just fine.

As soon as the value changed, the error cleared right up and I had the desired PolyLine.

Tnx,

Capt
// add polyline points for line ...
					if (eqType == 1)
					{
						$.ajax(
						{
							type: 'get',
							url: 'ajax_end_points.php',
							contentType: 'html; charset=utf-8',
							dataType: 'json',
							data: 'eqId=' + items.equipmentPK,
							async: false,
							success: function(data)
							{
								endLat = data[0] * 1;
								endLon = data[1] * 1;
								var pts = [
									new google.maps.LatLng(startLat, startLon),
									new google.maps.LatLng(endLat, endLon)
								];
								//alert(pts);
								// IE error: strokeOpacity must be 1 (Arg: fraction)  ...
								var polyln = new google.maps.Polyline( {
									path: pts,
									strokeColor: '#000',
									strokeOpacity: 1,
									strokeWeight: 5
								});
								// connect the points ...
								polyln.setMap(map);
							}
						});
					}
