JavaScript, Windows Mobile, and document.getElementById()

N

Nathan Sokalski

I am working on a small web application for mobile devices. I have been
testing it on a device running Windows Mobile 6. So far, my biggest problem
has been JavaScript compatibility. The first thing I have come to that I
have been unable to find a workaround for is document.getElementById(). I
have been trying to get properties from different elements using this, but
it doesn't seem to be returning anything. I have been doing my testing using
a simple window.alert(); to display a property value, and everything works
as expected on my desktop, but Windows Mobile 6 is just displaying an empty
dialog box. Can somebody help me here? Thanks.

The operating system dos not specify the j[ava]script engine per se.

I suppose you mean in a browser, since getElementById() stipulates that,
but if so what browser?

IE? Opera6.8? OperaMini? etc?

I know that I mean IE, but I don't know what version since I can't find
anywhere that specifies the version. But I do know that I am using the
version that came with Windows Mobile 6; if you can tell me how to find out
what version I am using, I would appreciate that as well as finding the
answer to my original question. Thanks.

Hello Nathan,

Try document.all.elementname (or in a different case...) this version of
IE is based on a very old version of the desktop IE. The one that will come
with windows Mobile 6.5 and later should solve all your issues.

Have you tried document.all?
