Can't change text field value in IE

P: n/a
I have some javascript that updates the text in a text field after
certain actions take place such as clicking a checkbox. The javascript
works fine in Safari and Firefox, but in IE, the text in the text
field remains empty.

The page containing this problem is at the following location:

http://www.skicow.com/component/opti...g_enabled,true

The last parameter enables debug which results in alerts popping up
with debug info and a <divon the page that shows what should be in
the text field.

The javascript is in the following file:

http://www.skicow.com/components/com...BayShop_1.1.js

All updating of the text field is done through the function
'setKeywordsFieldValue'.

Steps to reproduce the problem:

1. Visit
http://www.skicow.com/component/opti...g_enabled,true
in IE

2. Click on a keywords group link such as 'Snowboard' (this will
result in various checkboxes being displayed)

3. Click on a checkbox such as 'Snowboard Boots'

Step 3 should result in the keyword 'Snowboard Boots' being added to
the text field, but doesn't in Internet Explorer.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Seems to work fine in FireFox. Try putting the input field in a div
and then on check box set the innerHTML of the div to the new input
field with the wanted value. The problem is the refresh of the field.
try this. if you don't like that you going to have to put that input
field in its own script and call a write function on every change.
<div id="sommething">
<input id="keywords" name="keywords" type="text" value="" size="60"/>
</div>

document.getElementById('something').innerHtml = your new input

document.getElementById('something').innerHtml = your new input- Hide quoted text -

- Show quoted text -
insead of document.getElementById('something').innerHtml = your new
input
use document.getElementById('something').value = your new input

Too much of a conditional processing for different browsers...
The behaviour differs in FF and IE from onLoad() - there is NO alert()
when you load the page in FF...
So, I suspect that you are loading different versions of your js
depending on the browser and the one that you load in IE does not
work, as simple as that...
