CSS style detection for devices with 4.2.2 and lower



I'm trying to create a box that gives a note if a user does not have CSS enabled on their device:



<div class="nocss">You don't have CSS enabled...</div>


I defined the class as follows

.nocss {visibility:hidden;display:none}


Checking on a 8830/4.2.2 device, I won't see the text (hidden), but the page shows the div, kind of as a place holder, with nothing in it. I tried to set the height:0 but also that did not work. Any ideas?


Works fine with e.g. 4.7...

Re: CSS style detection for devices with 4.2.2 and lower

Hi bbinto,


The behaviour you have found is a limitation in version 4.2.2 of the BlackBerry Device Software.  This issue was corrected in version 4.5 which is an eligible maintenance upgrade for the 8830 device you are testing on.
