Can anybody show me the correct javascript syntax for setting the opacity(alpha) in IE8 , I tried everything I just can’t figure it out. Please no jquery or other libraries I need the js syntax.

Thanks.

Ok I figured it out, crap ie sucks so bad.

Syntax: element.style.filter = “progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=50)”;

Note if the html element has children and you want to apply the same opacity to the them then you need to set the filter css property to inherit.

Syntax: element.style.filter = “inherit”;

Hope this helps someone.

I only need the opacity , I am rewriting my libraries to work on ie7, ie8… surprisingly it works great:), and get read of jquery because I only use a few thing from the library, it make no sense importing 10.000 lines of code for this, plus there will be no more incompatibilities.

The only issue that I had was the opacity the rest is actually simple, but it is solved.
