Spry not working in IE8

I thought this was fixed but problem remains! I built a set of securityassist pages and Spry validation don't work at all in IE. Works in all other browsers!
Ive enclosed a screenprint of the error messege in IE8 and a copy of my SpryValidationTextField.js file

Ray or Jason could you please take a look at this? I don't know what is wrong!
It did work when I rebuilt all my forms with CSS Form Builder but then other things screwed up so I got back to my initial build using the forms generated by SecurityAssist. I don't fully understand how to use CSS Form Builder to edit existing forms made in SecurityAssist or Dataassist yet. I followed the guide deleting all validation before importing the form i Form Builder but I'm unsure how to add the Server Validation again after editing the CSS of the form? I guess the answer is in the online CSS Form Builder guide but I have not got all of it yet.
For now I nned to be ready with the pages Im working on so I really need to fix the Spry Validation to work in IE.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Martin J.

Same issue...

We also have a Spry Select Validation field which works in Chrome but not in IE8 and IE9.

The "Select Your Division" dropdown is a required field with Spry Validation. It works in Chrome, but is ignored in IE8 and IE9. registration.php

All other registration fields on the page are validated properly. How can we get this to work in IE? Any help is greatly appreciated!

the problem is happening because you page does not have a doctype tag.


without a doctype tag, IE will use quirks mode which uses the IE5 rendering engine.


add the following just before the <html> tag on your page:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

Spry Validation Select in IE8 and IE9

Thanks for the quick reply.

I entered the doctype tag and found no change.

Spry Select Validation is still not working in Internet Explorer.. neither IE6, IE7, IE8 nor IE9. Chrome (17) works and Safari is fine. Firefox (11) is fine.

Something with IE doesn't like the code. It might be something simple, but I'm not seeing it. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

try changing the initial option of the select list to have a blank value:
change:
<option selected>Please Select</option>

to:
<option value="" selected="selected">Please Select</option>

Thanks for the help

I tried adjusting the initial option but still the same.

These are good leads and it's encouraging having some direction. I fiddled with the code, until I got IE to refuse a form submission without a division selected. It doesn't show an error message in red by the select box, but it should work for now.

I really appreciate the suggestions! It's wonderful to know that questions are answered quickly on this forum. Thanks!
