IE Browser Issue

Dear Friends,

I am invoking a JavaScript method on a button onclick, in the JSP it looks like this:



Following is the JS method: From this method i'm calling a Struts action.



The struts action is called successfully from firefox, but from IE 8 the action is not getting invoked. But i'm getting the error message 'File download failed' which i have declared as a struts action error in case of any exception. I have added logs inside the action method and also debugged the action using eclipse. The action is never getting called from the JavaScript in IE 8 but somehow the action error is thrown. There is no stacktrace also.

Please provide your help.

Thanks,
Vijay

When you view the page source, does the link look correct that the serverside code generated?

When you look at the request with a tool like Fiddler, does it go out, does it look correct, what is the response?

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your reply. It was just a cache issue. After deleting the Temporary Internet Files it started working fine in IE 8 also. Wonder how this browser is used by many people in this world..!


Thanks,
Vijay
