I am using this plugin called jquery callout plugin. Now I have on submit if the fields are not valid it should popup this callout(one at a time).
Now when the user goes to click on that field I have it so that callout will be closed(through their .close function). Now in firefox and chrome it has no problems with this. However in IE(6,7,8) it has a problem with this and I believe it is because there might not be anything to close. Like if they are just filling in the form in for the first time they will click in the box and it will try to close the call out so this causes the browser to like freeze for a while and almost kills it.
So I am not sure how to detect though if this call out is open or not.
So I just need a way to tell if it is open or not. The thing though is the callout does not put anything beside it so I don't think I can look what is right beside the textbox and see if something there is not. I tried to look at the div that I had to make(that get filled with the call out and positioned) and thought maybe it changes it's css display from none to nothing(visible) but this does not seem the case. What it seems to do is changes it to "block" but I am not 100% sure if I should base my whole if statement on this piece of information what may or may not be creditable.
