Description Joseph Marques 2010-05-28 15:51:37 UTC
Description of problem:

The original SearchBar was written by injecting <span> elements with floated styles into the innerHTML for <option> elements under the combobox representing the suggestions.  This worked well on FF, had alignment issues on Chrome/Safari, but outright failed to render on IE at all.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load the inventory browser for resources or groups
2. Position the cursor in the search bar
Actual results:

Nothing happens on IE.

Expected results:

A panel should popup and display search assistance / suggestions to the user as he or she types.

BZ-597303: fix auto-completion / suggest code so that it's cross-browser
* fork the GWT SuggestBox component, which uses a custom MenuBar approach
* integrate rest of assistance algorithm into this component
* change styles so that SearchBar looks more consistent across browsers

Whoops, this bug should have been moved to ON_QA back at the end of May.  General SearchBar support for IE is in, but there may be smaller bugs on specific versions of IE - those are already being tracked in separate BZs.

This seems to be OK in IE7 and IE8...

Comment 5 Corey Welton 2010-07-20 16:17:24 UTC
QA Verified.
