AJAX nested drop-down menus...IE formatting issues

Discussion in 'Javascript' started by David Shorthouse, May 30, 2006.

  1. Hello folks,

    I just started thinking about a db-driven, 3-tier nested option menu in
    AJAX instead of the typical onchange --> post. I seem to have something
    working, but the resultant formatting in IE <7 is the pits (as is Opera). I
    suspect this has something to do with the way I am using <span> to block out
    the form whose content changes with the onchange function. So, I am writing
    to ask if there are some well-documented solutions to accomplishing
    hierarchical drop-down menus.

    Here is what I have:

    http://canadianarachnology.dyndns.org/data/canada_spiders/Specimens3.asp

    Works OK in FF and IE7, but the onsubmit causes some strange shifting of the
    page contents and I'm not sure if this was a javascript (AJAX) issue, or
    merely an HTML issue. If anyone can shed some light on what's going wrong
    with my implementation or can provide a better solution, I would be
    eternally grateful.

    Thanks,

    Dave
