javascript + msie7
a register page that i've created works great in firefox, but in ie7 for some reason it doesnt want to load/update the javascript. i've got a password strength checker which updates after a key is entered into the password field. same thing with the country/state dropdown. both work in firefox, and neither work in ie7. any ideas?

Re: javascript + msie7
unless you share what is not working for you there can be million of things which can work in one and not in other

Re: javascript + msie7
here is the code for password strength

in register.php

include 'functions.php';


<tr> <td align="right">Password:</td> <td> <input type="password" name="password" maxlength="30" style="width: 250" onkeyup="passwordStrength(this.value);"> </td> <td>*</td> </tr>


//displays the actual password strength realtime after each key is entered in password field
<table width="16%" align="left">
        <tr><label for="passwordStrength">Password strength</label>
                <div id="passwordDescription">Password not entered</div>
                <div id="passwordStrength" class="strength0"></div></tr>


in functions.php


<script type="text/javascript">
function passwordStrength(password)
        var desc = new Array();
        desc[0] = "Very Weak";
        desc[1] = "Weak";
        desc[2] = "Better";
        desc[3] = "Medium";
        desc[4] = "Strong";
        desc[5] = "Strongest";

        var score  = 0;

        //if password bigger than 6 give 1 point
        if (password.length > 6) score++;

        //if password has both lower and uppercase characters give 1 point       
        if ( ( password.match(/[a-z]/) ) && ( password.match(/[A-Z]/) ) ) score++;

        //if password has at least one number give 1 point
        if (password.match(/\d+/)) score++;

        //if password has at least one special caracther give 1 point
        if ( password.match(/.[!,@,#,$,%,^,&,*,?,_,~,-,(,)]/) )        score++;

        //if password bigger than 12 give another 1 point
        if (password.length > 12) score++;

        document.getElementById("passwordDescription").innerHTML = desc[score];
        document.getElementById("passwordStrength").className = "strength" + score;

Re: javascript + msie7
I see some browsers have the syntax of

<script type="text/javascript">


<script type="text/javascript">

and that could be one reason as well

Re: javascript + msie7
doesnt seem to have any effect. i also tried removing the html and body tags. javascript does not need to be in a .js file am i correct? although i may try this way to see if it works

Re: javascript + msie7
No it can be inline as well as in JS File

Re: javascript + msie7
I figured out the solution to this problem. I had <script ...> and </script> at start and end of the function file but i needed to close the script tag at the end of the first function, and start it again after for the next function.


<script type="text/javascript">

function 1(){
  //stuff here


<script type="text/javascript">

function 2(){
  //stuff here also

:thinking: i've been told we cannot force people to use certain browsers, but i disagree :hammer:
