Different behavior openedge explorer in different webbrowser

Posted by gdb390 on 17-Feb-2012 05:23


We noticed a difference between Openedge Explorer in Firefox 10.0.1 and IE 9.0.8112.16421 when adding a resource , e.g. a database .

Firefox is working like it should be, in internet explorer we get a list of pages (see image)

has anyone had the same experience ?

we searched the knowledge base, but we didn't find anything

OpenEdge Explorer  Version 10.2A0000  // progress version is 10.2A SP 03

kind regards

Hello Gerd,

This behavior happens because the component that builds the menu in that page is not detecting Internet Explorer 9 (this is also seen with IE8) and the code defaults to render the page as a list.

You can workaround the issue by using Compatibility View mode in Internet Explorer (Tools -> Compatibility View or Compatibility View Settings).

This issue has been fixed in 10.2B.

In OpenEdge 11.0, OpenEdge Explorer uses a new system for the menu and as such this issue does not occur.

I hope this helps.
