Disappearing Textarea using jQuery SlideDown() in IE7

There is an issue in IE7 and below where a form that toggling the display of via $.slideUp() & $.slideDown(), has an disappearing textarea.

There are some ways of solving this problem:

  • Try using another element, like a span instead of a div element to slideDown. Might be an IE’s rendering bug;
  • Another approach, is to set zomm:1; in CSS to the element which is trying to slideDown;
  • Also, solve this setting a min-height to the sliding element in CSS;
