ActiveWidgets 2.0.1 release candidate available

2.0.1 updated version is almost ready and I will be grateful if someone could quickly look at it before the actual release -


This version adds

- support for 'standards-compliant' doctypes
- support for IE7 beta2
- performance improvements
- many bug fixes, see


There is no new functionality and no changes in the API so if you did not modify AW source - the new version should work without any changes in your code.

Looks a bit rough here...my column headings no longer align with my columns. I can send you a screencap if you like......

Here's the doctype I'm using....

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">

Hi Alex... Report printing--- ;-)
- Columns do not resize in IE when grid is inside html table
I did not test it in a html table, but still do it into the popup template.(special ?)
- readonly attribute does not work with input box in IE
Tried, but no luck -- How to set it ?

- FF adds empty row to CSV model
- IE freezing when grid is used in a composite control
- grid headers/separators still visible with visibility:hidden

-- NOT YET TESTED (I'll try as soon as I can)
- cell text does not update during editing if changed from the API
- during editing all cell updates are blocked

( some other fixes do not affect parts of what i'm doing / or can't reproduce it, so I let the people that found that to test it )
Also, no strict testing for now

BTW The performance increase is noticiable, and the new "show it when rendering ends" great, Would the loading "progress-bar" looks like the actual "Trial-Warning-box" ??

Hi Alex

buttons are not displayed for me. I get the text but not the graphic. Maybe I have to explicitly declare different styles now for IE7?

Rich, in strict mode if you add cell border you have to reduce the padding (because of the different 'box model' - width=content and not width=content+padding+border). And you should always use object ID in selector because of the 'specificity' rules, so the cell border CSS should look -

#myGrid .aw-grid-cell {
    border-right: 1px solid #ccc;
    padding-right: 3px;

border+padding = 4px

Aha....I had only deployed aw.js. I deployed the new aw.css and all is well.

hi alex,
format bug is still in this version:

this code:
var perc = new AW.Formats.Number;

returns cells like this:

and on the other hand this code does nothing:
var perc = new AW.Formats.Number;
perc.setTextFormat("### %");

is there a way to format percents?

kind regards

This version works very fine on Firefox and IE in strict mode. However I'm not doing such fancy things with it. Thanks very much for the release candidate, it came just at the right time! :-)

Hi Alex,

i have another bug thats popped up. I have a grid with many rows. When i sort by a column, after the third or fourth time of sorting the grid is displayed with corrupt data.

It suggests that the grid is corrupting memory when the grid is populated with a lot of data.

I've checked and this was not an issue with the previous version.

Hi Alex,

On the new code I downloaded yesterday I'm seeing my top row being "scrolled up under the header" with only 1 pixel showing. I can still click on that one pixel area, but it won't come back into view until I click on a header to sort a column.

In this case I have only 2 rows.

It works fine (both rows showing) on the older code.

Thanks for your help.
