#147 Javascript under Mozilla


I'm not an expert of javascript, however,
I'm using Mozilla 0.8 under Linux, and
I cannot use the Drop Down menu interface,
since the menu do not drop :-).

I think there is a problem related to javascript.
If there are any details that you think it's
useful to know, just ask.

    Neither the drop down list or the tree view were ported to
    Mozilla/Netscape6. The scripts do come from Netscape's
    developer area, and are cross browser compatible.

    On Friday, I checked in a change to make the tree view work.
    It was rather simple. However, the drop down menu is
    proving to be much more "interesting".

    Additionally, it is not possible to submit a work order with
    any kind of date (deadline, start, or end) under Mozilla 0.9
    (2001060810 build).

    The only workaround I've found is to edit the
    templates/default/htmlWorkOrderForm.tpl file and make those
    fields not required -- comment out the Javascript and remove
    the 'span class="highlight"' stuff from around the text label.

    I haven't looked at fixing the JS itself, but I have tried
    submitting work orders with 3 or 4 different date formats,
    and none of them worked.

    This is a bug in Mozilla. I have been using Mozilla almost
    exclusively for regular development for about a year. It
    was broken within the last couple of months or so. I
    haven't looked into exactly which part of it is broken yet.

    Fixed date checking code in formchek.js. I'm going to
    close this because it may take a while to patch the drop
    down menu to work in Mozilla.
