Append Child working in Mozilla but not in IE.

2,476 Top Contributor
Have a look at my code fragment...

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var parent_UL_ref = parent.document.getElementById(..);
  2. var child_LI_ref = document.createElement('LI');
  3. parent_UL_ref.appendChild(child_LI_ref); //it's not working
Actually my question is if create an element using document.create Element, can it be added into any another document. I think that's what happening here ... ;)

normally there shouldnt be a problem with it. i'm doing the same in my current project. only there i create divs containing dynamically created paragraphs.

another option:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var parent_UL_ref = parent.document.getElementById(..);
  2. var parent_UL_ref .style.innerHTML += "<li>item</li>

You need to use imporNode.

Well i got the solution...

I have a opener window and a pop-up window, and there code given below.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. //onload function
  2. function openPopUp(){
  3.  window.open(......);
  4. }
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. //add-list handler
  2. function addList(){
  3.  var parent_UL_ref = opener.document.getElementById(..) ; //get the opener UL reference
  4.  var child_LI_ref = document.createElement('LI');
  5.  parent_UL_ref.appendChild(child_LI_ref); //here it says no such interface supported
  6. }
Up to this the whole code works in Mozilla but not in IE.

if i change the code like this ....
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var child_LI_ref = opener.document.createElement('LI');
Then it works in both ;)

If you're going to stick to the same document, then it will work. If not, you should be using importNode, but unfortunately, it's not been implemented in IE though you can find versions online.
