Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 601721
IE - config props appear editable when in view mode
Last modified: 2015-02-01 18:26:19 EST
The text input boxes are white and when they are clicked, a blinking text cursor appears, which suggests the input is editable, even though it is currently disabled. See attached screenshot.
We need to see if this is also an issue on IE6 and/or IE7.

note, despite being in view mode, the inputs are white and the first one contains a text cursor
I see the same thing on IE6 for the Inventory>Connection page. Interestingly, the boxes are properly grayed out for the Configuration sub-tabs.
I am not seeing this in IE7.0.6000
To be clear, I'm not seeing the issue in either the resource config or the conn props in IE7. Set fields are white but non-editable with no cursor. Unset fields are greyed out. Going into edit mode also works as does returning from edit mode via cancel.
Some more background on this one after some recollection...
The following page is a helpful test page for checking how different browsers render disabled versus readonly inputs:
Further breakdown of the issue:
a) Read-only resource configuration appears editable but is not.
Seen in IE8(ian,charles), but not in IE7(jay,charles), IE6(joe)
b) Read-only plugin configuration appears editable but is not.
Seen in IE8(joe,charles), IE6(joe), but not in IE7(jay)
IE Browser Versions:
Given the configuration is still not actually editable, continuing to keep this as low priority
To clarify, even FF will let you select a readonly input (which means a text cursor will appear inside the input). The difference is FF (and IE7?) will also gray out the input, while IE6 and IE8 will not. It is the selectability combined with the lack of graying out that makes the inputs really appear editable.
I need to try this out on IE8 with coregui to see if read-only properties are rendered in an intuitive fashion. We should consider just using StaticTextItems for read-only props.
Read-only props are now rendered in coregui/GWT using StaticTextItems, i.e. they will be straight text, rather than form inputs. One exception is read-only password properties, which are rendered as inputs for now due to the current lack of password property masking at the SLSB layer.
Verified on build#123 (Version: 4.1.0-SNAPSHOT Build Number: a6d2d56)
Verified on Firefox3.6.3, IE7 and IE8. The read-only properties now appear as straight text. Please refer the attached screenshot taken on IE7.
Marking as verified.
