JQuery selectors do not work in IE7/8 (6?)
Error: JQuery selectors do not work in IE7/8 (6?)Hello:
This code works fine in Firefox, but not in IE:
// Returns the highest rank in the list of textboxes on this page.
var highestRank = 0;
if (this.value.length > 0)
highestRank = Math.max(highestRank, this.value)
I have used the debugger and seen that IE does not find elements having ".rank" in the name, as below:
I have tried compatibility mode in IE8 and tried putting the"...rank" name as ids, and nothing works. could someone please help?
