IE7 Beta2 Button controls issue

Hi all,

Downloaded IE7 beta 2 last night, Found that the button controls do not diaply correctly in it. The right hand side of thre button is missing.

Is anyone else aware or will there be patches to resolve this?

Thanks in advance

I did not check with IE7 yet, so it is quite likely that something is wrong there as IE7 has a lot of changes in CSS. Currently I am not planning to do anything until IE7 is released.

Bodit,

From what I have read about IE7 and all of the problems that it has, I would not spend much time trying to get AW to run on it until it is a final product. There are going to be many changes to IE7 before it goes gold and those changes will most likely break anything you do now to get AW to run on it. Once the software goes gold, the AW framework will most likely work very well on it as it does now on IE6. Currently, I don't know anyone giving IE7 more then a cursory look at this time, it's still too early in it's lifecycle.

Hi all,

Thanks for the update. This is just a forward thinking concern that AW will make any changes to the controls where necessary for IE7.

Thanks again fro the update.

Considering all the changes FireFox went through to release 1.5 and all the efforts here that eventually were waisted getting AW to play nice with the beta versions because the issues went away when the FireFox 1.5 final was released. That is why I say just wait, mostly because of past experiences.

Hi,

It seems that the "bug" is still there with the Release Version of IE7.

The buttons does not get rendered correctly (there is a gap after the text) if a with is set (e.g. css: with=120px).

Alex: Is a fix available already? I would like to display my buttons with the same size.

Here is the fix for the button gap problem in IE7 final -

.aw-ie7 .aw-text-expand .aw-item-box[id] {
    float:none;
}


(add to your stylesheet or at the end of aw.css)

This works in IE7 final on WinXP and IE7+ on Vista RC1, but it will break button and tabs display in earlier IE7beta releases.

Am I missing something here. Does the .aw-text-expand fix work for anyone else in IE7?

All the buttons have their right side clipped off in the IE7 official release on 2003 Server at least.
