    Upgrade to SmartGWT 12.1 LGPL from 4.1 PRO

    Hi Team,

    I am upgrading my SmartGWT from 4.1 Pro to 12.1 LGPL

    My GWT version is 2.7.0

    I am using ant to generate the build.

    My problem statement is, my build is getting generated successfully but upon Login, I am not seeing anything on home page.

    I tried to see if something is failing using Chrome's dev tools. But nothing is highlighted as an issue there.

    Can you please help me resolve this ? Is GWT version is an issue ?

    Hi Isomorphic,

    Can i please get some help on this ?


      The GWT version is not an issue.

      You need to do some elementary troubleshooting steps like checking the Developer Console, or seeing if core SmartClient runtime files (ISC_Core.js et al) are being loaded at all. The Debugging overview will help with this.

      If you need hands-on assistance, we do have both Support and Consulting offerings and would be able to immediately solve your issues, and assist with taking advantage of the latest features in SmartGWT.

      However, please do not expect further (free) assistance unless you are reporting a bug in the framework with clear evidence that the problem is the framework and not your code. Again, see the Debugging overview for how to do this.

      And, hint: saying that all you did was upgrade and something broke is not evidence of a framework bug. Right after a new release, we generally get a number of valid reports of regressions and immediately fix them. After that, generally 80%+ of reports of upgrade issues are due to either application code that was never correct, not following the installation procedure properly, or just not clearing caches.


        Hi Isomorphic,

        I had never reported it as any kind of bug, i just wanted to know what could be the reason.

        I tried opening debug console from SmartGWT (SC.showConsole())

        I also checked chrome's network and console tab if anything is failing to load or giving any javascript exception

        Some of the screens are also working fine ( with some issues which i am able to debug)

        It was just the one screen where I am using below SmartGWT components is failing,

        import com.smartgwt.client.types.Alignment;
        import com.smartgwt.client.types.Autofit;
        import com.smartgwt.client.types.BackgroundRepeat;
        import com.smartgwt.client.types.Cursor;
        import com.smartgwt.client.types.EdgeName;
        import com.smartgwt.client.types.Overflow;
        import com.smartgwt.client.types.TreeModelType;
        import com.smartgwt.client.types.VisibilityMode;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.Button;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.Canvas;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.HTMLFlow;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.ImgButton;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.Label;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.layout.HLayout;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.layout.LayoutSpacer;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.layout.SectionStack;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.layout.SectionStackSection;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.layout.VLayout;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.layout.VStack;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.toolbar.ToolStrip;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.tree.Tree;
        import com.smartgwt.client.widgets.tree.TreeGrid;
        I will try to provide a standalone case if i can replicate there.

        Thanks for the help.

          Hi Isomorphic,

          By setting borders to my layouts, i came to know that it was an overflow issue.

          It has been resolved now and I have been able to proceed.

          Please consider my request as closed on this topic.
