javascript in safari

 8:28 am on Nov 5, 2009 (gmt 0)

Hi all!

I'm having a really frustrating problem with the simplest of javascript. It's for displaying a hidden <div> as a popup, with the help of css/javascript.
It works just the way I want it in IE, Mozilla and Opera, but when it comes to Safari, it's just a broken link. The cursor changes to the "pointer", but it's not click-able.

I can't tell how much I would appreciate your help on this one :)

The js:

function setVisible(obj)
obj = document.getElementById(obj);
obj.style.visibility = (obj.style.visibility == 'visible') ? 'hidden' : 'visible';

The html:

<a href="#" onFocus="javascript:setVisible('cssclass1',true)" onBlur="javascript:setVisible('cssclass1')">
<img src="img.png" border="0" class="shelf_prod">

This will also not work in Chrome. The problem is that Safari and Chrome (Webkit browsers) don't support these events (focus and blur) on links. Unfortunately, I don't know of a solution.

I was actually just thinking of that! It makes sence.. Thanks! :)

Do you know if onClick works in these browsers?

onClick does seem to work for Safari. I have yet to try this in Chrome.
Thank you so much Fotiman!
