Hi there - I'm stuck, still, using IE 8 and SP2007. Fun! My code works in a modern browser but I can't get it to fly on IE 8 (and that's important).
Here is what I am doing, basically:
relationshipList: "Staff List",
parentColumn: "Employee Type",
// some code that gets the current logged in user's info from another list:
var spsUser = getCurrentStaffUser();
// trying to update the values on my form to match the user's values:
$('#employee_type_id').val( spsUser['EmployeType2'].lookupID ).trigger('change');
$('#employee_id').val( spsUser['ID'].lookupID );
This works fine in a modern browser! But in IE, only the Employee Type changes to the correct
... the second one doesn't fire. I think it has something to do with the simple to complex drop down conversion ... I've tried even doing away with the
and just using
... but that still doesn't work in IE8.
