Sorry to re-activate this again. My management is asking me for an ETA ? Any idea on the complexity around an eventual fix ?

Thanks,

The issue has been addressed in 8.3d today and will be ported to 8.2p shortly - it should be in before the weekend.

Great!

With this fix, should I be able to put back my <META> tag ?

Please advise when it has been back ported to 8.2p and ready for my to download/upgrade.

Thanks,

We've now ported this to the 8.2 branch, so the change should show up in the next nightly build (April 6 or greater).

We believe the META tag will be able to be present again with this fix.
Please let us know if you do continue to encounter problems

Thanks

Hi,

Using the 8.2p LGPL from 4/9/2012, the issue with TreeGrid selections seem to now be gone when
I put back my META tag, but there are other remaining styling issues ...

For example, when the META tag is not there, everything works fine and when I put it in,
I have the following issues :

- A SelectItem marked as required = true will render its body in BOLD (not only its title)
- When there are validation errors, the validation icon aligns to the top

I've included different screen shots (see attachments) to show these issues. I've included the following :

- IE8 screen captures with our custom skin and META tag present (bad)
- IE8 screen captures with Enterprise skin and META tag present (bad)
- IE8 screen captures with our custom skin and no META tag present (all good)
- IE8 screen captures with Enterprise skin and no META tag present (all good)

So the issue does seem to be related with the presence of this META tag under either IE8 or IE9 ... We
need this META tag because we want to make sure IE9 renders using full IE9 capabilities as some
other parts of our app rely on this ...

Code:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="X-UA-Compatible" CONTENT="IE=9" />
Any idea why this is happening ?

Thanks,

It's happening because IE is full of bugs of course :) And the bugs are different in every version and every mode.

Do you see the same problems if you use the HTML5 DOCTYPE (<!DOCTYPE html>). This would be the most correct and forward-looking declaration to put on your page, will probably render your other content acceptably and may avoid these issues.

Thanks for your reply ... I just tried replacing my META tag with an HTML5 doctype tag and I get
the same results.

I know IE is a piece of crap, believe me. I personally try to stay away from it when developing, but
unfortunately it's a complete different story for our app's users, as our user base is 80%+ IE ... So I
need something to get this fixed somehow! Arghhh.

Any ideas ? Thanks!

With this code:

Code:
isc.DynamicForm.create({
    items : [
        { name:"textField", required:true },
        { type:"button", title:"Validate", click:"form.validate()" }
    ]
});
.. we can see an icon misalignment problem but not the problem with field values becoming bold. What more is required to reproduce that?

Your required field type should be of type "Select" and you should be able to reproduce.

Let me know if not. Thanks!

Now we see the effect. When we tried it before we didn't introduce a validation error first.
