Table DOM in Mozilla Vs. IE.

2,476 Top Contributor
Have a look at my code snippet ...
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. function add_row(){
  2.  var tr = some_reference;
  3.  document.getElementById('tab_id').appendChild(tr);
  4. }
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <table id=tab_id>
  2. <tr id=tr_id>....</tr>
  3. .....
  4. </table>
It works in Mozilla but not in IE.
If i do
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. document.getElementById('tr_id').parentNode.appendChild(tr);
now it works in both :-)
Could you explain why this happens ..experts ?

In IE, you need to append to the tbody rather than the table. See this part-article.

I did see that thread, but didn't participate in it. Some of the concepts I needed to figure out for myself before I could contribute, but I think it's resolved now.
