Hi Ranchers,

I have plain gwt application.In this application I have anchored some links through the UI binder.

Link 1: I am calling a JSP in a Frame in a DialogBox(Some Change Password Stuff)

Link 2:Again I am calling a JSP through the Window.Location.assign("JSP-URL");(Logout Page)

All these links work fine in IE7 and FireFox and displays the JSP in the Frame in the DialogBox,As well as the session expires and the window closes on logout.

.........................................

But when I run the application in IE6 the JSP in the Frame in a DialogBox is Blank.....I dont know why....I tried changing the path of the jsp in the Frame Url but still its shows me a blank page.This was for the link1

For Link2 the Logout page calls fine as Shown in the Server but the window hangs....

Please Help me on this.....

Does the JSP work if you call it directly from your browser?
Instead of the JSP, have you tested with some other URL like say http://www.google.com
Any messages on the error console when IE "hangs"?

Hi Maneesh,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes the Jsp works fine if called directly from the Browser.

Yes I tried opening a different address like www.google.com.But again this works fine in ie7 and mozilla but in ie6 it shows me blank page.

There is no error in the error console in ie6 for the links.

Waiting for your reply.......................................

Warm Regards

Sounds like an IE6 bug to me then. Sorry can't help you more.
You might want to Google around for similar issues by others.

Maneesh,

I tried Googling for the issue but it brings me to the same links all the time.

These are the links I tried

I am stuck here because my target audience is ie6

Cant rollback the project Now...Hope the Ranchers understand.

I also tried compiling the project by setting the property for specific browser (ie6) in the Project.gwt.xml...but All is the same

Hey I think the ie6 Bug is a Major problem when it comes to Anchored Links...


Any ways the problem is been solved by using Button instead of Anchors....





Thanks for the help guys....especially Maneesh
