Search not working with IE6
Last modified: 2010-08-12 12:53:19 EDT
Search is not working with IE6 6.0.2900.5512.xpsp_sp3_gdr.100216-1514 against Beta1 on RHEL 5.5
Searchbar accepts no input, no "please enter search term" message is shown.
First off need to determine if this is a problem which impacts all versions of IE, including 7 and 8
This only impacts IE6. The issue is documented here -- http://code.google.com/p/google-web-toolkit/issues/detail?id=3608
After injecting one of the fixes discussed in the thread -- http://code.google.com/p/google-web-toolkit/issues/detail?id=3608#c4 -- into MonitoringRequestCallback (such that it executes just before/after each remote GWT service call) the SearchBar loads and all functionality with it works. However, when the user goes to click the "GO" button to execute the search, a different error bubble up from the SmartGWT layer:
00:00:59.122 [ERROR] 13:31:36.750:WARN:Log:Error: 'Object expected' in http://192.168.0.190:7080/rhq/inventory/browseResources.xhtml?subtab=all&gwt.codesvr=192.168.0.190:9997 at line 83 anonymous()

Fixed in release-3.0.0 as of 9338dab
Tested on IE8 for jon-server-2.4.0.GA_QA.zip build# 65. Verified that the search works correctly.
Marking the bug verified.
Ok, so I just checked on IE 6 (per Heiko's suggestion) and found that the suggestions work, however, when I select the suggestion and click GO, nothing happens.
Moving it back to ON_DEV
This is still an issue with IE6 6.0.2900.5512.xpsp_sp3_gdr.100216-1514 but in a different way now.
Search bar displays and also shows suggestions, but when a final term has been selected,
neither pressing return nor clicking on GO starts the actual search.
The little "error on page" icon is shown
This is still an issue with IE6 version 6.0.2800.1106 SP1 Win2000.
Dropping priority, as its not possible to resolve this for the JON 2.4 release
