View Full Version : Stanger behavior in IE7

12-27-2008, 12:27 PM
1) Script Title: Featured Content Slider v2.4

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/featuredcontentslider.htm

3) Describe problem:
I have a page, loaded into a lightbox which uses above script to navigate in 9 panes (div's). I'm using all kind of features (ajax, images, rotation) in this file.
It works just fine in FF and IE6, but in IE7 I have to click each button twice (and an other button inbetween)! So, only the second time i click a button (after i clicked an other one) the pane is showing. The fist click show an empty space.

It's on this link (just click an image of a house to open the lightbox) :

Any help, ideas, .... (I tried to set the high z-index, no dice :mad:)

In the mean time i did some testing.
I also noticed that IE7 hangs up for about 2 minutes after de page is loaded.
Only after this 2 minutes the menu's from content slider are activated.

Is there a way to test further in IE7 under vista, like with firebug.
I donnot arrive to find out what's going on .

There is Developer Toolbar (nowhere near as useful as FireBug):


And also look into:


The problem appears to be a script conflicting during that time while IE is struggling to load the page. In XP, the IE 7 browser actually goes underneath (as if a command for document.onclick=function(){top.window.blur();} were in effect) other windows on the page if you click anywhere. Once the slider loads, it's fine.

I would suggest removing as many other scripts as possible, one at a time, in an effort to find where this odd code is coming from.

Thanks for the tip. I installed the developer toolbar.
It helps, but cannot even stand in the shadow of firebug !
Anyway i found out it has to do width transparency .
I had this line in my page :
enablefade: [true, 0.2], //[true/false, fadedegree]
So, i changed it to
enablefade: [false]

And now it displays correctly in IE7 (well not quite :
i still have a google map that only shows the upperleft pane
and the rest stays grey....

However, I suppose this helps us finding the real-problem.
I'll investigate the fading routine and will fiddle a bit...

I'll keep you informed.
