GetAttribute('style') Not Working In IE

Nov 24, 2005

I'm 2 for 2 on stupid questions this works in FireFox but not in IE it's not returning the value of the style element and I'm getting [object] error??

document.getElementById('test').innerHTML = document.getElementById('id_CompanyName').getAttri bute('style');

<div class="dR4C2">
<p id="id_CompanyName" style="font-size:<%=aspNameFontSize%>px;">

It seems to be a problem with the getAttribute('style') portion of the code because if I change the request to getAttribute('id') it executes properly....

GetAttribute() In IE

Jun 23, 2006

I have the following code which is working in Firefox:

function showOptions() {
if(!document.getElementById) return false;
if(!document.getElementsByTagName) return false;
var lnks = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
for(var i=0; i<lnks.length; i++) {
if(lnks[i].getAttribute("class") == "toggle") {
lnks[i].onclick = function() {
var options = document.getElementById("multiretailers");"block";

I understand that IE doesn't like he getAttribute() method and is
returning null for the class name.

What are the work arounds for this?

GetAttribute Isn't Getting The Attribute

Mar 29, 2007

I'm trying to get the value of an object's property. getAttribute returns "null" even though I'm sure the property is set. I can easily set the property, and in my actual script I do so dynamically. I just want to read the property and can't.

To help explain my problem, I've attached an example .html file as a .txt file.

The critical part of the code is this section that is based on "textbook" examples of how to get an attribute:

<script type="text/javascript">
showcolor() {
var myobject = document.getElementById("lab");
var myproperty = myobject.getAttribute("color");


This is called via a button on the bottom of the page. The DIV object with the ID "lab" exists and has a color attribute defined in CSS, but I cannot read it, nor any other attribute, with a script. The alert displays "null".

-> Style.visibility Not Working In IExplorer ??? <-

Dec 5, 2006

I have a strange problem using Internet Explorer.
My page has a table included in a <DIV>
I have a checkbox that shows the div when checked
and hides it when unchecked.

var division = document.getElementById("passport") ;

Then I use = "visible" ;
or = "hidden" ;

Everything works perfectly under FireFox or Safari showing or
hidding the table.

BUT, in IExplorer 6 or 7, just checking the checkbox doesn't
change anything. You have to first click on the actual division
position to make it appear. Same for unchecking: click on the
displayed table and it will disappear. Code:

Working With Attributes

Nov 1, 2005

I'm developing a web-template editor for a client, and they want it to update the changes in real-time using javascript. So, in other words, when a person selects a different background image, I use:"url("+bgimg+")";
Well, I've run into a little problem. I can't seem to find any manual on what comes after style.*

So far, I've seen style.color, style.backgroundImage, style.backgroundRepeat, style.backgroundColor. But, I'm looking for something that can control text-decoration, font-weight and a:hover

Does anyone no where I can find a list of all properties support after style.*?

JQuery :: Obtain ORIGINAL Style Setting - And NOT Computed Style?

May 5, 2010

My understanding had been that $.css("width") would return the original user selected style, eg "100%" or "10em", and $.width() returned the computed width, always in "px". Not so, following the code through for .css(), it calls something called getComputedStyle and the only difference between the two functions turns out to be a post-fix of "px" on the .css() result - not very useful. I need to know whether my user has called me with a proportional dimension, or a fixed one. How to tell with jQuery?

var arrElements = (strTagName == "*" && oElm.all)? oElm.all : oElm.getElementsByTagName(strTagName);
var arrReturnElements = new Array();
strClassName = strClassName.replace(/-/g, "-");
var oRegExp = new RegExp("(^|s)" + strClassName + "(s|$)");
var oElement;
for(var i=0; i<arrElements.length; i++){
oElement = arrElements[i];

JQuery :: Using To Style List-style-type?

This is probably quite a simple problem but I can't figure out the answer. I'm working on a site that has news stories and events coming in. What I would like is to have the news stories to be styled with squares and events with discs for instance. I might be able to change the actual plug-in so the CSS affects this change, but I just wondered how I could change the list-style-type with jQuery.

DOM Style.display In IE?

I have the following function in my attempt to build a 'treeview' It should (and does in Firefox) display an indented <p> tag (css indents it). The problem however, it doesnt work in IE. When this function is fired IE builds a VERY small <p> tag without any content in it... I think the problem might by caused by style.display but I don't know how to solve it.

pid = 'sub'+path;

// add paragraph (p) to contains var test
if (!document.getElementById(pid)) {
var pTag = document.createElement('p');
