Re: Document Viewer not opening in SAP WEBGUI

Hi,

we have a similar Problem.

Since we upgraded to SAPKB70217 some browsers (mainly IE) are not able to load the documents in the document viewer,

Firefox, Chrome, etc load the documents just fine.

With HttpWatch I can see that for IE Clients a parameter [?sap-ie] is added to the document URL.

I think the server can't interpret the added parameter and therefor can't locate the requested document.

Here and example of of Document URL ending in IE: /.ALF?sap-ie=edge

Here and example of of Document URL ending in Firefox: /.ALF

Can I stop the server from adding the ?sap-ie=edge to the document path?

Is Transaction OAG1 client independent?

Kind regards,

Fabian

    Hello Fabian,

    what Kernel version are you using with the SAPKB70217?  and what exact IE versions are you using?


    Older IE browsers use Quirks mode v's newer IE Browsers which use standards mode(edge)

    One can set the value of parameter sap-ie=edge or sap-ie=EmulateIE8

    See the notes

    1924378 -  "SAP GUI for HTML: Info about standards and quirks rendering

    modes".

    Regards,

      Hi Cristiano,

      thank you very much for pointing us to the Note. This is exactly our Problem!

      We will use our workaround through the OAG4 settings until the next Kernel Patch implementation!

      Thanks again,

      Fabian

    To the ITS SCN Community.

    Just a general information to this SCN thread.

    A good note search term for document viewer issues in the WEBGUI is cl_gui_html_viewer
