Dropdown list does not stay when arrow clicked in IE7 & IE8

Oct 4, 2010 at 8:54 PM

I like the FlexBox and want to use it in my application. I played with the demos for a while in the demo page and encountered problem with the dropdown list. I am not sure if this a problem in my browser or it can be fixed in the code?

This problem can be reproduced by this way: in the demo page http://www.fairwaytech.com/flexbox/flexbox-demos.aspx#demo1 , click anywhere outside any FlexBox in the page, then click the textbox of demo 1, then click the arrow of the dropdown list and the dropdown list shows. Repeat the 3 clicks several times, sometimes after clicking the arrow of the dropdown list, the dropdown list flashes but does not stay. Continue the clicks, sometimes the dropdown list stays but sometime not. I am using IE 7 & IE 8. I am not sure if this is caused by my browser settings or it can be fixed in the code?

Thanks.

I was able to reproduce this, but it was tricky (and of course, intermittent...our favorite kind of bug).  I will look into a fix this afternoon.

Thanks!

Thanks for your quick reply. Hopefully it's not too difficult to fix so that I can use it soon.

Regards.

Hi Benjamin,

I’m working on it right now! I had to prioritize some other client work, but I’ll see what I can get working.

Thanks,

Noah

Benjamin,

Please download the latest version of FlexBox (0.9.4) to see if it resolves your problem.

Thanks,

Hi Noah,

It seems it still happens but it happens less often. I downlowded the package with code and document and played with the demos fom there. I also see this when playing with the online demos. Would you mind to check it again?

Thanks.

Benjamin
