Hey guys,

I have a strange problem and need your help.

Could you tell me what is wrong here (actually it is not wrong because it works fine in every browser except IE – in IE7 not working at all and in IE8 only the mask is visible but not the overlay container)

<script type="text/javascript">
$("#add_to_cart[rel]").overlay({
    oneInstance: false,
    closeOnClick: false,
    mask:'#000',
    top: (window.innerHeight / 2) - 60,
    left: (window.innerWidth / 2) - 60,
    onLoad: function() {
        setTimeout('$("#add_to_cart[rel]").data("overlay").close();', 1000);
    },
});
</script>

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    }
});
</script>

See what I changed? There was an extra comma at the end, after the onLoad function declaration. Most browsers ignore this, but it breaks IE

Thank you fillerspace.

Unfortunately the only difference is that now IE7 also load the mask but not the modal container. And it doesn’t close after 1000 ms.

Really don’t understand… works like a charm in FF, Chrome and Safari(Win7)...

This demo is using only the default settings and I need more than one instance to be available and automatic self close function. May be this is the problem. I’ll try with another version of jQuery – may be this is the problem.

Anyway, thank you for your help.

Finally made it. And the lesson is – never put modal window in container with relative position. IE hates this (and I hate IE). :)

Ah, the joys of cross-browser compatibility testing… I shudder to think the number of development hours that have been wasted solving IE’s temperamental glitches :|

Thanks for posting back your solution – glad you got it resolved :)
