script wont work in IE

Post by micsta » Wed Aug 04, 2010 7:24 am

I have put a little script in the header of my forum. When viewing with FF, everything works (the menu image changes when using onmouseover). With IE however, the onmouseover image is not displayed so the menu is static.

Any reason why this would be happening?

Code: Select all



portalup = new Image; portalup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/nav_portal.gif";

portaldown = new Image; portaldown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/nav_portal_f2.gif";

homeup = new Image; homeup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/portal.png";

homedown = new Image; homedown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/portal_f2.png";

registerup = new Image; registerup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/register.png";

registerdown = new Image; registerdown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/register_f2.png";

thanksup = new Image; thanksup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/gratitude.png";

thanksdown = new Image; thanksdown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/gratitude_f2.png";

searchnavup = new Image; searchnavup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/search.png";

searchnavdown = new Image; searchnavdown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/search_f2.png";

memberlistup = new Image; memberlistup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/members.png";

memberlistdown = new Image; memberlistdown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/members_f2.png";

profileup = new Image; profileup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/ucp.png";

profiledown = new Image; profiledown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/ucp_f2.png";

pmup = new Image; pmup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/inbox.png";

pmdown = new Image; pmdown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/inbox_f2.png";

newup = new Image; newup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/newpm.png";

newdown = new Image; newdown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/newpm_f2.png";

loginup = new Image; loginup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/login.png";

logindown = new Image; logindown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/login_f2.png";

logoutup = new Image; logoutup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/logout.png";

logoutdown = new Image; logoutdown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/logout_f2.png";

restoreup = new Image; restoreup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/restore.png";

restoredown = new Image; restoredown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/restore_f2.png";

galleryup = new Image; galleryup.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/gallery.png";

gallerydown = new Image; gallerydown.src = "{T_THEME_PATH}/images/menu/gallery_f2.png";

Yeh, they are snippets from my overall_header.html. It's running now and working fine with Firefox, but with IE the onmouseover image wont show when hovering the cursor on the menu.

Give us a link to your board, so we see it in action.
My first shot is that you need to do new Image() instead of new Image only, but I'm not sure.

The problem is probably not my English but you do not want to understand correctly.
We will not come anybody anyway, nevertheless, it's best to shit this.
