[CLOSED] HTML page with parameters not working in Chrome and Firefox

Hi All,

I have a HTML page with a drop down and 2 iframes. 1st iframe populates the graph and the 2nd iframe populates the report. Graph and Report are in 2 different fex files each having the name of the drop down as a parameter. The HTML page was developed in HTML composer (WF 7703 version). The is working as needed in IE but not in firefox and chrome.

In both firefox and chrome, First time when I select the value from drop down and click submit I am getting graph in iframe1 and in iframe2 instead of report i am seeing a prompt page (default prompt page that we see in MR) for the parameter.

If I select another value and submit again then I am not evening getting the graph this time I am seeing the parameter prompt in both the iframes.

I appreciate any help on this. I did check the versions of the FireFox and Chrome with that given on the techsupport and they are good.

Thanks,

Rao.

make sure your 2 fexes don't have 'prompt' checked in their Properties

Susan,

All my files are on the reporting server hence no prompt options in the properties menu. That too as I mentioned earlier that it is working in IE with out issues. The issue is only on the FireFox and Chrome.

Thanks!

Is this a HTML Composer created page?
Do you have a javascript file referenced in this page?
Did you add the javascript file via the GUI Insert CSS/Scripts toolbar link?

Since this page is in MRE and if you answer yes to all the above questions, the reason it's not working *may* be because the javascript file is NOT found when running in FF or Chrome (or Safari or Opera or iOS Safari or...). When adding a css or javascript file via the GUI, the file is copied to the MRE domain's Other folder, which cannot be found via non-IE browsers. The javascript functions do not run and there is no javascript error. The solution to this is to put the file in the Web Applications area (web server) and hand-code the javascript tag:

<SCRIPT style="Z-INDEX: 0" id=utilities type=text/javascript src="/approot/web/utilities.js"></SCRIPT>

This is supposedly fixed with HotFix 7, available sometime near the end of October.

francis, this is all i've got for js calls
<SCRIPT id=IBI_nls src="/ibi_html/javaassist/nls.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT id=IBI_ibigbl src="/ibi_html/javaassist/ibi/html/js/ibigbl.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>

so... are you saying that if i move the 'ibi_html/javaassist' bits to an app directory, that ff/chrome will be able to find the stuff it needs?
or is there no hope for us 6.8 folk?
help?

Are your dropdown values being populated by a fex? Make sure there is no -EXIT in the fex. I had problem with this awhile back. It works in IE but not in Firefox for some reason.
  
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
   CAR
BY CAR 
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT XML
END
-* Don't use -EXIT in dropdown fexes
-*-EXIT

Francis,

yes, the html page was developed using HTML composer. I did not add any javascript files to this html but by default for any html page that we create I see the following 3 lines are added automatically at the top of the html.

<script id=IBI_nls type=text/javascript src="/ibi_html/javaassist/nls.js">

<script id=IBI_nlsVars type=text/javascript src="/ibi_html/javaassist/nlsvars.js">

<script id=IBI_ibigbl type=text/javascript src="/ibi_html/javaassist/ibi/html/js/ibigbl.js">

As mentioned my HTML is on the Reporting server in the APP folders not on the MRE side.

Mighty,

I am using a MFD to populate the values in the dropdown so there is not EXIT.

Thanks,

default prompt page that we see in MR

made me think you're in MRE. My suggestions are for HTML pages in MRE, for custom javascript files added via the GUI. background images for buttons applied within a custom css file as well...

The issue I was having with Firefox / iPad not rendering HTML (blank display), however IE 11 rendering properly is resolved. Thanks to Mighty Max's suggestion.
I replaced some -EXIT I had in the drop down generating FEX.
Appreciate your suggestion Max, saved me a lot of time.
Cheers!

This is an old post and I haven't seen these people posting in quite a while. Reading back through this though what I got out of it was that he was using a fex to populate the drop down and at the end of the fex it had a -EXIT causing it not to work in firefox. He removed the -EXIT and it fixed the problem.


Thank you for using Focal Point!
