WelcomeForumsCommunityIE6/7 Compatibility and CDN's

Hello,

I am currently evaluating wijmo complete for our project. It’s a ASP.NET “web pages” razor v1 website. There are several requirements:

1. We cannot use the CDN’s due to firewall restrictions.
2. The widgets need to work in IE6/IE7/IE8 due to some clients not being able to upgrade their browsers.

I’ve tried locating all of the correct files in the trial download (and going to the CDN urls) for local javascript and css references, and then creating an Editor (just the basic sample) in IE6, and got a strange javascript error that also seemed to occur in IE7. (“Invalid argument”, line 3, char 71224–hard to debug that in IE6 ;) ) Things mostly worked, but the Editor was misaligned, and pop-up messages for javascript errors probably won’t fly after a deployment.

So, can you confirm or help with the following?
1. Exactly what css and javascript files should be referenced, if done locally and not through the CDN (including the “proper” jquery and jquery ui references)? (I know that the images are important too)?
2. Does the doctype need simply need to change from < !doctype html> to the transitional one for IE6/IE7 to work properly?
3. As a follow-up to Luanne’s question on October 4th in another thread, do all of the widgets work correctly in IE6 and IE7? Things started working OK once I tried IE 8.
4. Finally, are there any references or documentation on properly structuring things for this type of restricted environment?

I’d love to just use the CDN’s and know that everything just works in IE6 (especially the editor, the charts with interactivity, and the grid), but so far I’ve run into issues and haven’t found the resources online to figure out why things are breaking.

If all of this won’t work, I’d just like to know so I can move forward. I wish old IE would go away, but it never seems to (thanks MS! :) )

Thank you very much, Jason

Hello Jason,,

>>1. Exactly what css and javascript files should be referenced, if done locally and not through the CDN (including the “proper” jquery and jquery ui references)? (I know that the images are important too)?
You need to reference following files to work with wijmo widgets :
a. jQuery References (jquery.min.js and jquery-ui.min.js)
b. Wijmo Widgets JavaScript (jquery.wijmo-complete.all.2.2.2.min.js and jquery.wijmo-open.all.2.2.2.min.js)
c. Theme (jquery-wijmo.css)
d. Wijmo Widgets CSS (jquery.wijmo-complete.all.2.2.2.min.css)

You may reference individual js files also. For each widget you need to use a bunch of js files. The samples available with wijmo build contains all the references required.

>>2. Does the doctype need simply need to change from < !doctype html> to the transitional one for IE6/IE7 to work properly?
Ideally, the wijmo widgets should work in IE6 and IE7. However, since both these browsers do not support HTML5, so there may be certain problems with them. If you are facing this let us know in detail how and where eactly are you getting them.

>>3. As a follow-up to Luanne’s question on October 4th in another thread, do all of the widgets work correctly in IE6 and IE7? Things started working OK once I tried IE 8.
As mentioned earliar, widgets should work. Since IE8 has better support of HTML5 hence our widgets also work better with it.

>>4. Finally, are there any references or documentation on properly structuring things for this type of restricted
environment?
Our samples contains local references to js file. You may use in environments where cdn links, etc are retricted.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks,
Richa
