[SHARING WF 8204] Issues
I'm going to add to this page of things that I find in 8204 as we do our upgrade.



FYI: I'm making a WebFOCUSWorkAround.js file (sorry cannot share, don't ask) to store all my work arounds in and then I just call the workaround. This way I can eventually just update 1 location to go back to the recommend way.

I feel ya Texas. Our site has so many workarounds and replacements for what doesn't work in the product that even the great library of Alexandria could not contain them all... lol

Add onKeyUp issue.

OMG, in my javascript file I have a function called isValidDate. Would you know it somewhere in the javascript file that IBI is using in 8204 there is now a javascript function with that same name and when the calendar control is changed the function is called and it is calling my function not the one provided by IBI.

Lesson Learned: When you create javascript functions prefix yours with something that would not really exist except in your javascript code.
