IE7.0 + .NET 2.0 + AJAX = Problems!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed IE7.0 and now my app’s AJAX control (accordion) and hidden panels are not coming up.  Is this a potential bug?  Is my HTML outdated?  This is happening on my master page with the AJAX accordion control and on a content page as well.  I am running XP SP2 on IE7.0.5730.11. 


    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • Just wanted to throw my oar into the water as well.  I am having exactly the same problem with IE7, .NET 2 and Ajax controls, specifically the panel extender control.  My panels do appear, only they seem to open and collapse from the middle out rather than from top down.  This little problem will become a big headache for me when our company deploys IE7.  My Ajax reports will not look right.  This is definitely an IE7 issue.  The panels work perfectly in prev. versions of Explorer.

  • FYI,  We did an XP system restore back to last Friday (11-17-06), before I started having the problem you are now having.  My Ajax now works as it did before with no problems.  As soon as I brought my system back up though, a JAVA update notice came up.  I think maybe the JAVA update coupled with the IE7 update messed up Ajax.  Just thought you might want to know.

  • I have a similar panel issue.  The position of my panels is a DISASTER!  They've shrunk.  I had to change the width properties of all my panels that were wrapped inside ajax update panels.  This happened right after I installed IE7.  What happened?

    The Report Viewer is messed up as well.  I had to adjust the height of the report.  Before, the height of the report automatically adjusted.

    Again, what happened here!?

  • I've been having a similar problem.  I use AJAX with web services and ususally just generate the HTML via some functions on the server.  Anyway, when my javascript gets back the asyncronous response and I try to write it to the page (usually via div.innerHTML), for certain elements, I get a big whitespot until I hover the mouse over it (WTF?).  If I remember correctly I even had the same problem when I built the node through the DOM instead of innerHTML.  Anyway, I hope this gets fixed, because this may mean the end for web 2.0 unless I can find some hack around this.  It's funny, because this doesn't happen for all the elements on the page and only happens in IE7.  I wish I could figure out a workaround, but still, this needs to get fixed and pronto, before this browser gets widely deployed.  Wish I could find a bug reporting site to document this in.

  • Add one more to the list.

    Using an accordion control with ie7.

    The headings and links do not display when loading the page.

    If I click onto another tab, scroll the contents of that tab, and then click back on the tab with the accordion control,

    the buttons appear properly.


    This doesn't happen in IE6.


    any information would be extremely helpful.

  • did anyone find where this post moved to, or the solution??

  • Not sure.

    Since IE7 fixed a bunch of CSS bugs, there is a chance that the fix, broke the accordian implementation, if it was based on old broken behavior.

    If you can post a URL, I/we can look at it and be able to inspect/verify what the issue is.

  • Unfortunatly I can not post a link, as the server is still in development and not available outside our local network.  A little more information about the problem I’m having:


    I used a plain old panel, with a background color, applied the AJAX rounded corners extender and that was it.  In IE6 everything looks fine, in IE7 and in Safari the panel has no height attribute so all you see is the top and bottom of the panel.  I tried removing the rounded corners, same problem.


    When I remove the script manager, and all associated AJAX components the panel returns to normal and everything looks the way it should (except for the lack of AJAX functionality)

  • I am experiening similar behavior when using the Rounded Corner Panel Extender inside of an Update Panel browsing with IE 7.


    The height of the Panels is shorter than the height of the panels content.




    Any help would be appreciated.
