    Default Official list of browsers in which CDF really works?

    Hi. Is there any list of browsers in which CDF really, and I mean REALLY, works (all examples, all javascript events)?

    As far as I've tried:
    - Firefox 3.5 doesn't work
    - Internet Explorer 6 doesn't work
    - Internet Explorer 8 compatibility mode (default) doesn't work
    - Internet Explorer 8 compatibility mode (IE 7) doesn't work
    - Internet Explorer 8 compatibility doesn't work

    - Opera 10 works
    - Midori 0.1.10 works (I kind of like this browser, small memory footprint, light weight, ACID3 compliant)

    The problem is we are developing some "user end dashboards", and our users won't be installing or using something different than the latest Internet Explorer or Firefox.

    Metalayers samples, and all other samples that capture click events over graphics won't work on neither Internet Explorer or Firefox.

    As a developer I understand that covering all browsers is too much hard work, but at least an idea to where to look for would be appreciated, in order to make CDF fully work on "most popular browsers".

    Thanks in advice for any useful help.

    Given Mozilla use CDF extensively, I think you can safely say it does work in firefox 3.5. The CDF developer uses firefox too.

    What exactly is your problem in these browsers?

    whilst there are differences in the Moz and IE jscript engine, they are both perfectly usable and have no onClick issues, at least not for my end users anyway.

    what exactly have you tested?
    are you talking about the samples?
    define "doesn't work" .. whats not working?
    CDF is just html + javascript.. as long as the browser can handle that (all of the one you've posted can do that) cdf will work

    you'll need to take care of some compatibility issues (the one every web application developer has... CSS etc) but thats it

    On the projects we do for our clients, all the major browsers are supported (of course, this leaves out the 1% that passes QA, but quickly fixed).

    Most of the times (all?) incompatibilities are introduced by the developers. An extra comma in a metalayer definition is enough for it not to render in IE.

    Obviously, by all major browsers, I'm not counting IE6. I don't do any bit of effort to support a browser with what, 8 - 10 years?

    OK. I'm using a Pentaho out-of-the-box 3.5-RC2 installation. Tomcat bundle, using the included Hypersonic DB.
    My Firefox 3.5 installation has no additional plugins, it's a clean profile.
    SO there's no configuration issues to blame me about.

    What have I tested in all the browsers I mentioned:
    * CDF samples:
    - Chart samples: Clicking on the pie chart to select a region does nothing. The error on Firefox's error console is "Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004003 (NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER) [nsIDOM3Node.compareDocumentPosition]" nsresult: "0x80004003 (NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER)" location: "JS frame :: http://localhost:8080/pentaho/mantle...9D9.cache.html :: s2b :: line 206" data: no]"
    - Pentaho Home Dashboard: Clicking on any chart does nothing.The error on Firefox's error console is the same as before.
    - Pentaho sample: Clicking on the pie chart does nothing. Same error as above.
    - Home Dashboard with Metalayer: Clicking on the microscopic pie charts to select a territory, or in any chart, do nothing. Same error as above.
    - Sample (bc): WORKS!
    - JFreeChartComponent sample (in core components documentation): urlTemplate: "javascript:alert(\"You clicked \" + encode_prepare(\"{PRODUCTLINE}\"))", doesn't work.

    Tried it in both Linux (Ubuntu 9.04) and Windows XP with the same results.
    In Internet Explorer I get the same "not working" behaviour, but I can't get the error detail.

    I hope I've been clear enough.

    That error is standard, its not really an error

    OK, so it doesn't work with Firefox, until the standard error is fixed by them. Nothing to do there.

    But what about Internet Explorer? Are there any "standard errors" there too?
