I am using

Jquery: 1.7.1

jQuery UI: 1.8.17

IN IE-8 i am getting "target.offsetWidth is null or not an object" error.

I tryed to debug and fond that in jquery-1.7.1.js at Line number 3164 look like:

if ( ontype && elem[ type ] && ((type !== "focus" && type !== "blur") || !== 0) && !jQuery.isWindow( elem ) ) {

and my updated solution is

'''if ( ontype && elem[ type ] && ((type !== "focus" && type !== "blur") || ( != undefined && != undefined && != 'undefined' && !== 0)) && !jQuery.isWindow( elem ) ) {

Here is getting undefined in IE-8

Html code to access datepicker

<input type="date" value="2012-01-18" size="11" name="applicationdate" id="applicationdate" class="datepicker" required="required">

and Javascript code:


dateFormat : 'yy-mm-dd',

changeMonth: true,

changeYear: true,

showButtonPanel: true,

constrainInput : false



please correct me if i did some thing wrong.

and make it available ASAP.
