WebGUI standards mode with Internet Explorer

1324 Views Last edit Mar 07, 2017 at 05:51 PM 3 rev


We are using WebGUI through Portal iViews. Portal uses Ajax Standards Framework and transaction iViews are shown within the Portal framework.

WebGUI is rendered in quirks mode.

In order for the transaction iViews to work with Internet Explorer, we needed to find a solution for WebGUI to render in standards mode. Otherwise a pop-up will occur that IE is in standards mode, but the iView is in quirks.

We implemented notes 1926394 and 2140417 (as well as some other prerequisite notes), which should enable WebGUI to use the parameter ~WEBGUI_NEW_DESIGN=1, so that it would be rendered in standards mode (refferring to Note 1970689)..

Now, the parameter ~WEBGUI_NEW_DESIGN has been set for the webgui service, but I still get the same error pop-up than before. So I reckon that for some reason the parameter does not work, although implementation of these notes seem to be fine.

System's kernel version is 721 - is it possible that the kernel version is causing this error or has anyone else had this problem?

I came acrosse note 2007142 which is a kind of a prerequisite for ~WEBGUI_NEW_DESIGN to work (according to note 2140417), but the manual activities described in the note are present in the system, so I don't need to modify the descibed parameters.

Any help or ideas are appreciated.
