Javascript not working on IE but works on others

Hi folks!

 

OK, here's the scoop. I have the following code (which is part of a larger HTML file):

 

 

<img id="pic_no3" onmouseover="expand_pic3()" onmouseout="norm_pic3()" class="xr_ap" src="member_album3_htm_files/picno2.jpg" alt="" title="Dashka sitting on a log." style="left: 0112px; top: 00000860px; width: 147px; height: 220px;"/>

 

<img id="pic_no1" onmouseover="expand_pic1()" onmouseout="norm_pic1()" class="xr_ap" src="member_album3_htm_files/picno1.jpg" alt="" title="Amina in the hay." style="left: 0355px; top: 00000610px; width: 330px; height: 220px;"/><script>function expand_pic3(){document.getElementById("pic_no3").style="left: 0112px; top: 00000860px; width: 294px; height: 440px;"}function norm_pic3(){document.getElementById("pic_no3").style="left: 0112px; top: 00000860px; width: 147px; height: 220px;"}function expand_pic1(){document.getElementById("pic_no1").style="left: 0335px; top: 00000610px; width: 660px; height: 440px;"}function norm_pic1(){document.getElementById("pic_no1").style="left: 0355px; top: 00000610px; width: 330px; height: 220px;"}</script>

 

Basically, this doubles the size of the photo when the mouse is over the photo, and when the mouse leaves the photo, it goes back to normal size. This works fine on Firefox, but not on IE. I'm thinking it may be some setups in IE, but not sure. Any thoughts anyone?

 

Thanx in advance - Q. :-)

I don't see any obvious errors, although I wouldn't use leading zeros on the numbers for fear the browser would interpret that as octal numbers. that might be problem, 0860 is not a valid octal number. Otherwise, check IE's error console for error messages.

OK, here's the scoop. I have never seen a Javascript example where the style was set in one long string.

 

document.getElementById(id).style is an object -- not a string.

 

If you break it up it works fine.

 

http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/dom_obj_style.asp

function norm_pic3(){var pic = document.getElementById("pic_no3");pic.style.left = '112px'; pic.style.top = '860px'; pic.style.width = '147px'; pic.style.height = '220px';}

Same here. I was thinking maybe it was an alternative way in JavaScript of styling the element in an 'inline' styling way like <div style="width: 100px; height: 100px; margin: 0 auto"></div>

Hi Davej,

 

I tried what you suggested, by breaking it all out. It still acts the same. I can resize on Firefox, but not on IE. This is part of the code for a picture album of sorts. Another problem, is that as pictures are added, I have programmed it to push the other pictures to the right, and down rows as each row fills up. However, it doesn't seem to matter what coordinates I tell the pictures to take (left and top), they seem to get placed rather "willy-nilly" all over the page. I can place pictures statically with a web page builder, and they turn out perfect, yet when I use PHP to upload a picture, and it places the HTML code into the file for positioning the picture, the browsers seem to ignore it. I've even used winmerge to compare the code between the two, and it's identical. It makes no sense to me why one set of code works, and another set of identical code does not. I'm quite new at this whole HTML stuff, so please have patients. Any suggestions?

This works in IE11.
