Subject [jira] [Closed] (TAP5-712) Form component: javascript error in IE when submitting form
Date Fri, 01 Apr 2011 00:12:05 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-712?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Howard M. Lewis Ship closed TAP5-712.

    Resolution: Won't Fix
      Assignee: Howard M. Lewis Ship

The waitForPage() logic was added for a specific reason and is essential.  Because you say
this only affects users of IE who are using it in developer mode, I can't see this as a big

The alternative is much uglier; it would involve rendering link tags and forms as (possibly)
span tags (so that clicking them would not take effect) and then using JavaScript to convert
them to their proper type after the fact ... perhaps there are other options, but all involve
disabling the page and re-enabling it with JavaScript. That screws anyone who doesn't use
JavaScript, and further, requires JS even on the very first page of the application, which
has its downsides for performance and scalability.

> IE6, IE7 and IE8 popup a javascript error dialog if script debugging is enabled in browser
settings. "A Runtime Error has occured. Do you wish to Debug? Error: Tapestry is undefined".
> Debugging shows that the reason is ' onsubmit="javascript:Tapestry.waitForPage(event);"
' part of ' <form enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded" onsubmit="javascript:Tapestry.waitForPage(event);"
action=... '
> This can be very bad for web developers that visit tapestry based site.
