Jquery Conflict

Last Modified: 2012-02-10
I am trying to implement two functions on my page.

A calendar picker using jquery-1.5.1.js and a product zoomer using RbZoom.js

When the calls to the scripts are like this...

 <script type="text/javascript" src="js/RbZoom.js"></script>
<script src="calendar/jquery-1.5.1.js"></script>

only the calendar works and the other way round just the zoomer works.

How can I get both of these working?

After deleting sections from jquery1.5.1 I know that's it's ..

function createStandardXHR() {
      try {
            return new window.XMLHttpRequest();
      } catch( e ) {}

That's causing the conflict. When this is deleted the zoomer shows (but then of course the calendar picker does not)

I have attached the js for the zoomer in case that helps

use jQuery instead $ for ALL your jQUery code.


Thanks for that, so find and replace all $ for JQuery in the the code for both "js/RbZoom.js"and "jquery-1.5.1.js" ?
