javascript error using ie

my menu was working fine earlier today and i really have no idea when i broke it on ie since i've been viewing my page in firebird most of the day. the only thing i can remember really changing is putting in item styles for my "headers". in any case, i'm getting this error using ie now:

Line: 70
Char: 1
Error: Object doesn't support this property or method.
Code: 0

on firebird, the menu loads find, works great, and the javascript console has no errors in it. the only js file i've messed with at all is my menu_data.js.

any ideas? i found several other threads with this error, but those problems were using the v3 menu or the person was trying to load a new page into a frame.

Ran your menu_data.js file on the latest milonic sample and it worked without problems in ie 6.

You might have another problem on that page :?: :?:

You have a layer with an id called "milonic". This is illegal. You cannot name anything milonic because that is a keyname that is used throughout the menu code. Renaming it on my dev server took care of the problem. ;) Simple mistake, happens to everyone! Consider naming things alittle more uniquely to avoid problems with other things in the future.

i'm glad i finally had a simple problem, let me tell you. lol. i feel bad hogging up forum space with questions, but i really appreciate the help. :) i'm glad my browser (ie, not ie. heh) at least was smart enough to figure out the css. :P

changing the class to something other than milonic worked, and i wouldn't even have thought of looking outside my js files. thanks herio!

Hey no problem. And the more questions the merrier! The only stupid question is a question thats not asked (man thats a cheesy over used line I heard all too much through school, :lol: )

i'm more the type to bug someone that i know knows on a chat program, most likely aim. forums are normally the place i go to help other people, and coming to this one with all the questions i have is more than a little weird.

however, if there are no stupid questions, ... *evil grin*

This is meant to be a help forum, and we do our best to keep it that way. We do digress once in a while, throwing a few fun barbs around, and that's fine. Hopefully everybody who comes here learns something, and gets the answer they're looking for.

Besides Dave and me, and of course ol' what's-'is-name - you know, the guy who wrote it - just can't remember his name right now :roll: - we have a great group of users who add their knowledge to the pot. Makes this not only the best da... um, darn menu system around, but the most well-supported forum as well.

You said you help in other places. We hope you will do that here as well. Dave and I are users, as is everybody else here. We don't work for Milonic. Point? Join in - we gladly accept help from everybody.
