    I can't reproduce this issue - works correctly for me in IE8 in both 4.0.2a and 4.0.4

    I can reproduce the issue just fine. I get a slightly different error, though -

    Might I inquire what platform everyone is testing IE8 on? What I have observed is that there is some horrible, hard to isolate bug in the VML engine that causes certain versions of IE8 on certain operating systems (in my case, Vista 32 bit) to bomb out. The border layout is likely bombing out because it can't handle the vertical text. Try collapsing one of the panels that doen't try to display text - it will probably work.

    See

    http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthre...version-of-IE8

    Jamie said he was looking at this but I haven't seen anything more about it. If nothing else, you can post more details (32 bit, 64 bit, etc). Good luck!

    That's two strikes for Vista then. I don't have access to an XP machine, but I've had other reports that the same examples work. I have a Win 7 machine and the examples on IE8 work just fine. I've had people try IE7 on Vista and it appears to work fine. I've tried IE9 on Win 7. I've tried other browsers. It just appears to be IE8 on Vista. Maddening! The OP in the other thread about charting was also on IE8 Vista.

    Also, as I said in the other threads, other (non-Ext) VML examples work on my Vista IE8 machine, so it's not just that all VML is broken for me.

    I just haven't had time to track it down yet - my Vista machine is at work and we're not on 4.x so I haven't had the time to devote to it.

    It would be very helpful if someone at Sencha could set up a Vista machine with IE8 and confirm whether your VML libraries work on it or not. Don't know if Jamie ever got this setup or not, but at least the other thread was accepted as a bug.

    I suppose it still might be a configuration / install problem for us, but *something* is going on here... It's very frustrating when all the examples that use border layout are broken just because of the vertical text.

    I don't actually have a Vista + IE8 machine (virtual or otherwise) on hand at the moment, so I've asked ops to spin one of those up for us. They have a bit of a backlog so won't be today...

    Cool, thanks for getting the ball rolling on this anyway. It will be great to finally get to the bottom of this. My original (closed...) bug report was for B2 on April 7 so I can wait a little while longer

    And hopefully the OP of this thread posts back that he's on Vista, too... didn't mean to hijack this or anything, but the issue just sounds really similar.

    Interesting... I guess that throws out a Vista-only bug theory.

    Does it look like you have the same VML issue I have or is it really something different? Do the charts work for you? Does collapsing the southwest region (the one that doesn't display the vertical text) work?
