javascript error: Could not complete the operation due to error 800a025e


  • Using javascript to set focus and select text on a multi-line textbox (which is a textarea html element) and I get the error:"Could not complete the operation due to error 800a025e" in IE8. Works fine in Mozilla. The select() function works when the dynamic controls (the controls are dynamically generated) are first loaded but when rebuilt (page reloaded) I get the error. The focus and select script work error free for all single line textboxes but not multi-line textboxes.
