Topic: IE error with "RJS Templates for Rails" example


I have implemented the first part of the expense tracker in the "RJS Templates for
Rails" booklet. It works fine in Firefox, but not in IE -> when I add an expense, I get an RJS error.  Has anyone else had this happen?  The second pop-up window shows the following:

new Insertion.bottom("expenses", "<tr id=\"expense-6\">
  <td>Bottle of Wine</td>
  <td class=\"amount\">19.95</td>
new Effect.Highlight("expense-6",{});

I don't know what IE's complaining about, as the DOM ids are all setup as per the book example (plus it does work in Firefox!).  Any idea why this would be happening?

I seem to recall there being issues with IE and manipulating table rows.

What is the error you are receiving?

You can't set innerHTML on a table like that unfortunately. You'll have to replace the entire table if you want to do it with innerHTML and have it work in IE.

Or you can add a row through the DOM or by adding to the table's .rows[] and the row's .cells[] wink
