IE <select> and clickable <img> problem

97 New Member
Hi there,

I have a nasty little problem, as so often, only with IE. Here is an screenshot to better illustrate the problem. http://geodata.grid.unep.ch/screenshot13.png

The map is clickable (to enable zoom in and other functions). But in this case, I would like to select a value from the drop-down list, which displays as a "drop-up" list because of not having enough space downwards.

Now, when I click to select a year, IE interprets this as a click on the map, instead of just a selection within the box. It sends the request to the server and the server does what it is supposed to do. But the selection of the year still wasn't successful.

Any way to avoid that IE confusion?

I tried already to add onclick="window .event.cancelBu bble=true;" but it didn't help...

Thanks for any hints!

In case you wonna see it - and it's worth having a quick look to the site :-)) :

1) http://geodata.grid.unep.ch
2) select a key word, such as "population density"
3) select a variable on a "National level"; click on "continue"
4) select a year; click on "continue"
5) select the map module
6) at the left bottom, select the "Trend Analysis" tab, click the check box and select a starting year. And here's the problem.

Is this only in IE6? I don't see a problem in IE7. I'm switching computers around and don't have IE6 available right now.

Very interesting site. I'm not too sure this belongs in the HTML forum. If I did everything correctly (following instructions) it looks like the onchange event is firing prematurely. Let me know what you think or post the onchange event for that drop down. Either way I should probably move this to PHP etc...

Let us know,
Aric

I think there is no onchange event. The map takes some (for me rather) heavy Javascript as input (which enables to draw rectangles for the zoom). I guess that this is the one which interferes with the select element...

Hello, I'm trying to do the above in order to process an image and return the result to an html image control. It fails and my key suspects are either the variable that I'm passing in - ImageName - for processing, or the return data which is done (or not as the case may be) by imagejpeg($img) in the script, after header("Content-type: image/jpeg"). Any insights would be most welcome, especially debugging techniques and a pointer to...

I have a customer who has requested that I add "popup" text (a la ToolTips) to a couple of pulldown lists in a DHTML form we have in our project. He says - Just use the ALT tag. I went and double checked, and the ALT property only shows up for the IMG tag. Can anyone help me with how to implement this? What they want is some amplification to the list selections.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
