Blackberry Javscript Text Color


I'm trying to change colour of text field on fly after some validation but it is not working.I tried on Blackberry Simulator Bold 9000.

On normal Browsers it is working fine.

Using below script to change color.


document.getElementById("textboxid").style.color = "#FF0000";


Thanks & Regards

Re: Blackberry Javscript Text Color



I normally use JS-Frameworks (dojo) to do things like these for me. That being said, I remember having that problem with IE and this might just be the same.


I solved it by using setAttribute:



But of course this will overwrite all old attributes.

If you need those, I fear you will have to use getAttributeNode and then add your style information to .nodeValue.


Hope this helps,

Re: Blackberry Javscript Text Color

Which version of the BlackBerry OS is on the Bold 9000?


Is it 4.6 or 5.0?
