Hot Fix for IE9 Available

| Comments (21)

When testing the DHTMLX library with IE9, we found an incompatibility issue that appears when data is loaded from an XML file. To fix this issue, please use dhtmlxcommon.js which can be downloaded here. We have also fixed the problem with drawing of node labels in dhtmlxTree in IE9 Beta.

All component packages, which are available for download from our site, already contain the fixed dhtmlxcommon.js. Users of dhtmlxSuite PRO Edition will receive the link to the compiled dhtmlx.js with applied fixes by email.

      What version do you use? Full IE9 compatibility is available since DHTMLX v.2.6.

          Windows Explorer is an application for browsing the file system, maybe you mean Internet Explorer?
          If so, please provide more info (example would help) so we could follow the issue. It’d be better if you post your question to the forum.

    I went down dhtxml 3.0 and I have problems with xml, change the file you mention, but the problem persists, with dhtxmlGrid sample files, and tried with Chrome, Firefox and IE 9. thank you very much

    • Ivan May 8, 2012 at 4:26 pm

      The fix above is included in dhtmlx v.3.0 so there shouldn’t be any problems in IE9. If you encounter any issues with loading from XML, please submit a question to the forum and describe the problem you have:

    Thanks for your reply. The examples do not work for me, but I did an exercise using the documentation and had no problem. Thank you very much.

    I got this error in dhtmlxScheduler v30_111025.
    I saw the same method in other files (dhtmlxscheduler_client.js, dhtmlxscheduler.js, dhtmlxdataprocessor.js, scheduler.js), but this fix is only with dhtmlxcommon.js file.
    It will work only updating this file?

    • Ivan June 5, 2012 at 4:30 pm

      This problem is not actual for dhtmlxScheduler v3.0. Be sure to check that you are not loading old dhtmlxcommon.js
      If the problem is still actual, please create a thread in dhtmlxScheduler forum and provide more details on what you are trying to load.

    loadXMLString for dhtmlxCombo is not working in IE Standard mode, but its working fine in comparability mode. It throws error like object does not support this property or method. Have any solution?

    Do you have this Hot Fix for dhtmlxcommon.js v. 2.5 build 090904?
    Thank you

    • Ivan December 29, 2012 at 12:48 pm

      Nope, but you can use dhtmlxcommon.js from any package version 3.5.
      It is fully backward compatible.
