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".

AJAX :: GetAttribute Is Not A Funcation

During development of Bing Maps, I've come across a problem when reading in an XML file and plotting a ploygon. The code works fine on IE, but FireFox is giving me the following error message: Error: xNodes[i].getAttribute is not a function

The function in its entirety is copied below and the problem line is marked in red. Hoping that someone may have come across this problem?

-> 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.*?

Style.cursor='hand' In FireFox Not Working??

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?

GetAttribute("width") Not Returning Correctly

Oct 31, 2006

I'm working on a slider script and it would be just lovely to be able to specify the slider's width in a width attribute on the input that represents it. In the code below, getAttribute("width") is returning 0 in IE, but seems to work fine in firefox. . . .

<!DOCTYPE html
PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<script type="text/javascript">
var curr_slide="";
var ie = (document.all && !window.opera)?1:0;
if (!ie) document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEMOVE)
var tempX = 0
var tempY = 0
var slide_width=200;
function buildSlider()
var sliders=getElementsByClassName(document,'input','slider');
var len=sliders.length;
for(var i=0;i<len;i++)
var div=document.createElement('div');
var handle=document.createElement('div');
function getSlide(obj)
var s=obj.parentNode;
var lft1=s.offsetLeft;
var lft2=obj.offsetLeft;
var num=(lft2-lft1)-1;
return num;
function getElementsByClassName(oElm, strTagName, strClassName){
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];
return (arrReturnElements)
function getMouseXY(e)
if (ie)
tempX = event.clientX + document.body.scrollLeft
tempY = event.clientY + document.body.scrollTop
tempX = e.pageX
tempY = e.pageY
if(tempX < 0)
tempX = 0
if(tempY < 0)
tempY = 0
var c_obj=curr_slide.parentNode.nextSibling;

else if(n_spot>slide_width)
<style type="text/css">
border-top:solid 1px #10385A;
border-left:solid 1px #FFFFFF;
border-right:solid 1px #FFFFFF;
border-right:solid 1px #FFFFFF;
border-left:solid 1px #FFFFFF;
table tbody tr td
border:solid 1px;

<form method="post">
<input type="text" alt="100" width="200" class="slider" />

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

Oct 12, 2011

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.

IE Not DOM For Style?

Jul 20, 2005

Is it just me, or does:

obj.setAttribute("style","border: thin solid navy");
(for example - no style seems to be set) not work in IE6 but works fine in NN6?

I don't want to use[.cssText] just because.

Test file:

<title>Javascript test - dynamic elements</title>

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
function createDiv(divId, appendElement)
STYLE="border: thin solid navy; width: 300px; height: 300px;";

// create
D = document.createElement("div");

// set attributes

// append element

function testRun()

<form name="f1">
<input type="button" name="b1" value="test it" onClick="testRun()">
<div id="target"></div>

Style Of Div

May 14, 2004

I found that if I define the style(visibility...) of a Div in a CSS class, I wouldnt be able to set it through JavaScript. The only way it works is if I declare all the style attributes in the Div tag itself first. Is this how it works?

W3C And Style.left

Jul 23, 2005

What I wanted was to get rid of offsetLeft and use "proper" way instead....but when I do:

I keep getting empty string, unless I first set it manually (in CSS or js)
to some value...

if that is intended behavior(that is if I haven't f***d up something :) in
my code), and there is no offsetLeft property in W3C recommendation, what is
then "standard compliant" way to make browser calculate coordinates of some
tag on the page???
