View Full Version : Is there any plugin to display ExtJs Chart in IE 6 ?

7 Feb 2012, 1:51 AM

I've been testing ExtJs 4 charts for a fews days now and although it works perfectly on FF 9, Chrome and even IE 8, I can't get it to work on IE 6.
On the presentation page of ExtJs, I read that the supported browser where among others IE6+ so I assumed IE6 was supported ... Did I get something wrong ?

Apart from that, my charts are displayed through Vml engine as SVG is not so widely supported on the platforms we target.

Does anyone know of some plugin to display charts as PNG or JPEG for instance ? (or convert VML into one of these 2)
Do you have any idea of how this could be overcome? (maybe define a new engine by extending ExtJs classes ?)

Thanks for any pointer,

Hum, this might be due to my using IETester ... I worked well for this kind of testing so far... I'll have to find a way to test my charts on a real IE6.
Thanks for the reply mitchellsimoens
