Subject: A few xloadtree browser problems From: James Agnew Date: August 29, 2004


Firstly, I'd like to congratulate you on a great piece of work!

Next, please accept my apologies if this problem has been brought up / resolved before, but I didn't find any reference to it on google/feeder.

Upon loading the following URL in Opera 7.54 on XP (pre SP2) & IE 6.0.2


the initital non-expanded tree displays correctly. However, the '+' signs do not react when clicked, and the branches fail to expand.

Double-clicking the folder icon itself causes the folder to expand, the '+' icon turns to a '-' , but the branch stalls on the 'Loading...' icons and doesn't expand any further.

It's also worth noting that the fav icon displayed in the browser address is actually the MS Word icon. This also happens in Firefox, yet the tree functions correctly in version 0.9.3 of the latter.

FYI, running the tree app through our browser testing servers and tesing pages that call the tree.expandAll(); function, we note that the following browsers also fail (note: this is via a screengrab of the webpage rendered once the tree.expandAll(); is parsed - we cannot say for certain that clicking a node/double-clcking a folder would not work, but it's unlikely).

Konqueror 3.0.5 for Linux

Explorer 5.2 for Macintosh

Opera 6 for Macintosh

AOL 7.0 for Win 2000 (manages to expand, but then only displays 'Loading...' node)

Opera 7 for Win 2000

Opera 7 for Win XP (pre SP2)


Of course, the **good news** is that it works perfectly in the following browsers :-)

Mozilla 1.6 for Linux

Netscape 7.0 for Linux

Mozilla 1.6 for Macintosh

Netscape 7.0 for Macintosh

Netscape 7.0 for Win 2000

Safari 1.2 for Macintosh

Explorer 5.0 for Windows NT4

Explorer 5.0 for Win 2000

Explorer 5.5 for Win 2000

Explorer 6.0 for Win 2000 and XP

Explorer 6.0 for XP

Netscape 7.1 for Win XP

Mozilla 1.6 for XP

Mozilla 1.5 for Win 2000

Firefox 0.9.3 for XP


Phew! I hope this of help to you guys. If you need us to run test URLs through our browser checking server farm, just give us a shout - we'd be happy to oblige.

I understand that you don't have Mac hardware to test the tree for that platform. A number of our users have Internet Explorer 5.2 for the Mac and the tree fails in the same way as Opera 7.54, namely correct rendering of initial tree, but failure to expand nodes. We would be happy to donate some Mac hardware to you (free of charge) if this is of interest. We have a G3 that's gathering dust :-)

Regards, James
