Rollbase IE Default Document Mode Layout Issue

  • Good Day Sir! When logging into Rollbase using IE9, the Page's default document mode is automatically set to Quirks mode.This results to the page being rendered using IE5 standards. Is there a way for Rollbase to default the Document Mode for IE9 to IE9 standard instead? We did not encounter this issue in IE7 and IE8.  Currently, we taught our users to manually change their Browser's Document Mode to IE7. Best Regards, Gutchi Gutierrez Rollbase PH

  • Hi,

    Can anyone reply on this topic?

    We are currently having problems with the display of Rollbase for our IE9 clients.



    fyi, It also makes it harder for the developers and designers to adhere to Quirks Mode (renders as IE5 standards). Could we kindly change the default Document Mode to whatever browser version the client is using? ^_^



    IE9 browser >> IE9 Standards

    IEx browser >> IEx Standards

    Moz browser >> Moz Standards

    Webkit browser >> Webkit standards

    and so forth...



    Thanks ^_^ - Will be waiting for your replies.

  • Hi all,



    Could we kindly follow up on this? I believe I speak for everyone who places custom css on their apps that it's kinda hard to comply with IE5 (quirks mode) standards. Although, doable, this is still not efficient since IE7 should be the lowest tested version of IE (since IE6 was officially deprecated), hope you guys can shed some light on this.



    Thank you very much ^_^

  • Updates please? :l
  • Hi Martin,



    Do you have a suggestion for how we can address this via changes to the page header? If so we will give it a try. I am not sure exactly what change you are requesting as it pertains to document headers



    Thanks,

  • Hi,



    I noticed that you are not using !DOCTYPE in your document headers in the Rollbase native application (non-portal).

    Here is a snippet from one of our zones:




    This automatically renders the page in IE5 mode (quirks mode) in IE9.



    What we can try is adding a !DOCTYPE to our document header

    Here is a sample. (you can read more here >> http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_doctype.asp)









  • Bump.
  • Hi Martin,



    Thanks for the suggestion, I am planning to add this hopefully before this weekend's update and we'll take it from there.

  • Thanks Matt, this will solve a lot of layout issues regarding IE since they keep on using the Doc Mode Quirks Mode (IE 5 rendering).



    Thank you very much

  • This is now in and scheduled for the next update, most likely this Friday or Saturday



    Thanks,

  • Hi Martin,



    After some testing this is causing JavaScript problems in the app so we need to do more work before releasing this header change. I will keep you posted.



    Thanks,

    Matt
  • Hi Matt,



    We use this header for our portals and we don't usually run into problems.

    Maybe you can try other doctypes from the link I provided which might be a better choice for Rollbase. Atleast a doctype be it simple, but not simply . ^_^



    sorry for imposing but since around 80% of users use IE this might pose a problem not just for Rollbase PH but also for your other customers as well.



    Thank you very much,
