Description Sunil Kondkar 2012-05-02 04:29:42 EDT
Description of problem:

The Bundle Creation wizard displays blank.gif images (red cross image) in URL and Upload fields on IE 8 ( Version 8.0.6001.19190).

Image : coregui/org.rhq.enterprise.gui.coregui.CoreGUI/sc/skins/standard/images/blank.gif

If user selects 'Recipe' radio button, clicks on button 'Click to load a recipe file', and then selects another radio button (URL or Upload), it displays the blank.gif images ( red cross image) in 'File to Upload' field.

Please refer the attached screenshots.

IE version: 8.0.6001.19190

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to RHQ on IE 8
2. Click on Bundles main menu.
3. Click on 'New' button.
4. Observe the blank.gif images (red cross images) in URL, upload and 'File to Upload' fields.
Actual results:

Additional info:

The fields 'Distibution File' next to 'Upload' radio button and 'File to Upload' next to 'Recipe' radio button looks shrinked on IE8. (Smaller size as compared the view with Firefox10)

Lets investigate, and see if there is something hopefully simple going on here.

for the record, the image URL that is coming back with a 404 is this:

Comment 9 John Mazzitelli 2012-05-16 13:15:26 EDT
I noticed this missing image on text items that are disabled. So I googled and found that someone on the smartgwt forums reports the same thing:

Comment 10 John Mazzitelli 2012-05-16 13:29:48 EDT
look at post #28 for a summary of the issue and possible causes/solutions:

Comment 11 John Mazzitelli 2012-05-16 14:22:57 EDT
that smartgwt forum post #28 says this:

"3. load order issues, where load_skin.js is loaded after the application starts. There are a few different ways to determine if this is your problem, but one is to call Page.getSkinDir() from onModuleLoad(). If the path includes "standard" your load_skin.js file hasn't loaded yet."

I did that and the Page.getSkinDir returns "http://<rhq-server>:7080/coregui/org.rhq.enterprise.gui.coregui.CoreGUI/sc/skins/Enterprise/"

Nothing with "standard" in it - so that probably isn't any indication of a problem.
Comment 12 John Mazzitelli 2012-05-16 15:43:46 EDT
this is a bug in the SmartGWT library.

as per post #30


which was a response to post #29


I rebuilt using the 5/16/2012 nightly build ( http://www.smartclient.com/builds/SmartGWT/3.0p/LGPL/2012-05-16 ) and I no longer see the broken image overlaid on top of a disabled text item.

Not sure how to proceed. I don't think we want to ship with a nightly build. Perhaps wait for the next SmartGWT release.

Note that I do not have a bug number - I just am going by the SmartGWT forum posts linked above.
Comment 13 John Mazzitelli 2012-05-16 16:45:39 EDT
as per smartgwt.com website:


"The letter "p" in a version (e.g. "8.2p") indicates a patch build, containing post-release fixes only, with no new features added. These builds are a convenience relative to having to install all post-release patches, and should generally be used instead of the actual releases."

so the version I tested with is the latest version Isomorphic says should be deployed in production.

See the comment in reply to my post asking the question:

Comment 14 John Mazzitelli 2012-05-16 17:32:35 EDT
workarond is to add the .gif in our coregui app and see if that fixes is.

the real fix would be to get the latest patch build for smartgwt but that would require alot of testing to make sure nothing else breaks.
Comment 15 John Mazzitelli 2012-05-17 14:33:55 EDT
git commit to master: f8d25ac1f598f8d3441e94ee2eaa1de6b7298eb3

once we upgrade to a new SmartGWT, we should revert this since it won't be needed. To revert this, we just need to delete this blank.gif:

Comment 16 Heiko W. Rupp 2013-09-01 06:09:35 EDT
Bulk closing of items that are on_qa and in old RHQ releases, which are out for a long time and where the issue has not been re-opened since.
