 CC 2.07 and IE7

I am one of those who has so much code under CC that I cannot justify the time to go to CCS for projects I maintain that I wrote in the past. With Microsoft's pending action to unleash IE7 through updating, I would imagine I am not the only one who will end up trying to use CC with IE7.

I installed IE7 on one machine and so far it appears to work fine except for some nagging Internet Explorer Script Errors. Every page loaded under CC returns a script error on Line 2, Char 1 and says Invalid character. Some pages also error on Line 1 Char 9898 and report KeyDown is undefined.

Anybody know how to stop those? The Advanced settings under IE7 do not seem to have any effect.

Also, any other issues that anybody else has seen with IE7?

An update for those who care, I found the culprit to be {baseURL} in the html files. It is giving the location of Common.js and IE7 does not like the way it is using it. My guess is it has something to do with the anti-phishing elements of IE7 but so far turning those off does not work. I can make it work by adding the javascript directly to the html files but that is not very eloquent.

I know there is no desire by Yes to update 2.07 so if anybody wants to work on solutions for those of us who cannot turn our backs on CC then feel free to post here. So far, I have only found this one error. I will update as I test further.

Hi Thierry,

I am running version and have a strange problem. Please see this post and the PeterR reply. I had not even considered ie7 could be responsible.

Have you seen any problems like this?

Thanks for responding Thierry, have you done any testing with IE7?

I have made some test but I have still the problem of error, but no crash
I've tried to turn off some option with no result .
As I use firefox, the only solution I found is ... return to IE-6

Today io had this answer from yessoftware ..

"Yes, we hope so.
Currently we have many unresolved tasks with CCS 3.x and we don't know yet when we will be able to investigate the problem with CC.

Best regards,

I'm having the same problems with CC2.0.7 + IE7

I don't want to abandon CC2 because it is such a comfortable fit for the webapps I develop. Just like a favorite pair of shoes.

Any help resolving the IE7 problem with CC2.x is greatly appreciated.

I have been sent private messages about wanting to know if I have had any luck fixing the CC2.07 issues with IE7.

I am making progress and CC 2.07 seems to have a number of deprecated html calls that are causing the errors. The {BaseURL} I mentioned above was not the issue. I am knocking them out one at a time but I keep running into more. I will update this thread when I make more progress.

I have not done extensive testing, but I have a bandaid fix that appears to work on the 2 deployments of CC2.0.7 I have running. (WinXP Home w/ IE7 + WinXP Pro w/ IE7)

Roy's 2nd post stated "I can make it work by adding the javascript directly to the html files but that is not very eloquent". Taking his lead, I added the code from Common.js to each of the html files located in C:\Program Files\CodeCharge\GUI\

It appears to have CC2.0.7 working again with no annoying run-time popups. As mentioned earlier, I have not done extensive testing, but I am able to start a project and take it to completion without glitches.

I glued all the *.html files into a zip archive and posted them at:

Backup your current *.html files in the C:\Program Files\CodeCharge\GUI directory prior to inserting those contained in the zip archive.

Please post back to this board if you try it and meet with success or otherwise.

Roy: Am I missing something? Reading your last post about deeper issues, I'm not convinced that using modified *.html files is a good solution. However, since modifying these files, I have been able to resume work with no issues.

Thanks MD,
I'm going to test your solution and tell you the result.

Hello MD
:-) I've tested on two different computer (XP Pro and Family) with IE7 (french version) with no problem.
All is allright.

Thanks very much

Glad to hear that it works. :-)

Perhaps it will keep us on track with our projects until the programmers have time to come up with a fix.

Hi all,

Here is an official patch for CodeCharge 2.0.7 that resolves GUI issues related to IE7:
Please unzip the contents into your CC installation folder.

It is similar to mdrone's patch (thanks) as it includes GUI folder with a set of files that should overwrite the previous GUI files. However, I don't know if it works much differently from the fix provided by mdrone.

Thanks for the patch, but unfortunately there still seem to be some problems. One that I am experiencing is this:

1.) Add two forms to a page.
2.) Edit properties for form #1
3.) Clicking properties for form #2 results in properties for form #1.

I applied mdrone's patch instead and CC seems to work OK.
