Problem with opacity in IE


I am applying opacity for a division using javascript like this,

<script type="text/javascript">
function setOpacity()
document.getElementById("myDiv").style.opacity = ".20";

<body onLoad="setOpacity()">
<!--div id="myDiv" style="filter:alpha(Opacity:30); -moz-opacity:.30; opacity:.30;"-->
<div id="myDiv">
<img src="My Pictures/Google Talk Received Images/resizable.jpg">

[/HTML]It is working fine in FF but it is not working in IE.
What I have to add for this to make it work in IE?
If any body knows the solution most welcome, it is most helpful for me.
Thank you in advance.

opacity (the standard) doesn't work in IE. You have to use proprietary filters:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. elem.filter = "alpha(opacity=20)";

I am trying to get the opacity value of a division using the javascript statement,

"var opacity = document.getElementById("divId").style.opacity;"

It is working fine in Mozilla but not in IE.
What I have to use here to get the opacity value in IE.
If any one knows the solution in this regard, most welcome.

Thank you in advance.

You'll have to use the filter property.
