Hi,

Please open the following sample under IE6 and you will see that the grid is empty

That is weird... getElementsByTagName doesn't seem to be working on the XML document.

The only thing the W3C XML validation service finds with http://dev.sencha.com/deploy/dev/examples/grid/sheldon.xml is that it has no DOCTYPE.

Maybe if that were added?

I don't have access to such ancient software any more, so I can't test this.

You could do the same thing as I have:
Install Virtual PC and mount the IE6/XP VPC image (both free downloads from Microsoft).

And after that you can rediscover how much the MS Script Debugger sucks!

Hi,

You can use IETester for tesing against various IE

I know, but you can't do javascript debugging in IETester.

Hi,

I can debug javascript in IETester using Visual Studio. Just add 'debugger;' to required place and you will see the dialog to choose VS version for debugging.



And after that you can rediscover how much the MS Script Debugger sucks!

If you have installed VS then you know how much the VS debugger rocks (imho) (but unfortunately it can works with IE only)



That is weird... getElementsByTagName doesn't seem to be working on the XML document.

Yes, for me the same behaviuor, 'getElementsByTagName' doesn't return nodes (but childNodes contains required nodes)

IMHO IETester does a better job than those IE builds (and it's easier to switch between the different IE versions).

This has been resolved in SVN ext-core 3.3.x branch. The xml-grid example is working again.
