Problem with JList custom renderer
« on: May 19, 2009, 11:56:55 AM »
We're having a problem with the custom DefaultJListTableRenderer we are using.  Scrollbars are not appearing under IE 6.  We have a customer who refuses to upgrade IE.  Can this be fixed in the latest version of AjaxSwing?

By the way, two classes in com.cleo.lexicom.html are still appearing in the latest ajaxswing.jar.  I think these can be removed.

We'll investigate and get back to you on this. If this is something simple and doesn't break in other browsers, we should be able to fix it.

Did the scrollbars use to appear under IE 6, or did they never work?

We will remove com.cleo files from distribution. Sorry about that.

I doubt the scrollbars ever appears in IE 6, but we're not sure.  We'll wait to hear back from you.

Any update on this?

We have found one other problem related to IE 6 in addition to this one.  In our portal application where AjaxSwing is providing the content within a freemarker IFRAME, any AjaxSwing request generates a "Server communication error" dialog.  If it matters, the communcation error detail always seems to be (xhr.status:12019, xhr.statusText:Unknown, statusText:error).

This hasn't been investigated yet. Will get back shortly.

Regarding 12019 error, is it only happening in IE 6? Does it work in IE 7/8 and Firefox?

Did you check the log file for errors?

We double-checked.  This is only happening on IE 6.  We do not see this on IE 7/8 nor Firefox 2/3.

I don't see anything in the server or client debug file (attached).

This is being worked on. When posting multiple issues, it would be good for you to prioritize them so that we address the more important ones first.

Okay, will do.  The IBM JRE issue was more important as this issue at first, but we've decided not support IBM JRE 1.6 in our pending release, so it's become less important.

How big of a deal is this issue? We were able to reproduce the scrollbars problem but don't have an understanding of why it's not working yet.

IE 6 is a dieing browser and the issue with making code changes to account for it's behavior (and bugs) is that it will complicate the codebase and affect future maintenance. Changing code would also require testing on all browsers and that has potential for new bugs.

Is it possible to convince the user to upgrade to IE 7 or 8, or to Firefox?

The customer has agreed to move to IE 7, so this issue can be dropped.

By the way, I don't think we have any outstanding issues with AjaxSwing now, so thanks again for all your help!
