httpFolder not working in IE 11 Preview RRS feed

  • Question

  • New IE11 not working correct! Nothing happens!!

    My Own Cloud (WebDav/HttpFolder) isn't working anymore in IE11 on Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview and Windows 8.1 Preview

    < span ID="myElement" style="behavior:url('#default#httpFolder');" onclick = "myElement.NavigateFrame('https://mysite.something/cloud','_blank')"><a href="http://mysite.something/home" target="_self"><img id="img200" alt=" My Cloud" height="20" onmouseout="FP_swapImg(0,0,/*id*/'img200',/*url*/'Buttons/button33.jpg')" onmouseover="FP_swapImg(0,0,/*id*/'img200',/*url*/'Buttons/button34.jpg')" src="Buttons/button33.jpg" style="border: 0" width="150" />

    What's the issue or how to fix?

    (note: webdav folder is located on IIS8 (windows server 2012)

    Hmm, that's interesting...

    Finally: IT WORKS, but I first had to disable (Enable Protected Mode in IE11).  Both my webdav and ajax browser are working....

    That's good to hear.  But I wonder why?  I didn't have to turn off Protected Mode.  In fact, I just enabled that new Enhanced Protected Mode setting as a test, and it worked ok that way too.  Here's a snapshot.

    Anyway, here's how it looks with XP+IE6.  The _self target does work with that combo.  Upon clicking your Cloud button, IE6 morph'd into a Windows Explorer view, as shown, while retaining the IE6 titlebar.

    I guess that's the last time it ever operated like that.  With IE7 and later*, it think it'll always launch a separate Explorer window.

    (*except IE11 takes some coaxing)

  • Can anybody help to make this easy script work in IE11 (it works fine in IE8, IE9 and IE10)

    <body style="background-color: #CAE4FF">
       <p ID="myElement" style="behavior:url(#default#httpFolder);"/>
       <button onclick = "myElement.NavigateFrame('https://xyzxyz.nl/cloud','_self');">My Cloud</button>
    Thx a lot...

    Why? I do not like all the public cloud solutions. Better have all the data on my own server with webdav. As long as i have an internet connection all my important files are available. Find a place without Internet (Free/paid WiFi/4G/5G/Hot Spots) is very difficult noawadays. So no need to synchronize my files anymore.

  •                  "Is that where you last saw _self accomplish that, Applegate?  With IE6?"

    IE6 is long time ago. S I can not answer that question.

    But one important question remains: The script is not working with IE11 yet. Nothing happens when I click the button.

    If run from a IE10 it works perfectly.

  • Neither it works with Windows 8.1 preview with my own WebDav server nor with www.ajaxfilebrowser.com

    Note: I did a clean install of windows 8.1 RTM in a Hyper-V 2012 and used my windows live ID as a user. I created 2 HTML files on my IIS webserver in my windows 2012 server. 1 with my own WebDav and 1 to the ajax example. Both work wit IE10 but nothing happening on IE11.
