View Full Version : Window Header Gradient Internet Explorer 8

25 Oct 2012, 2:42 PM
I have sass to style an ExtJS Window header that works fine except for Internet Explorer 8.

When I add this:

.x-window-header-default-docked-top-mr {
-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient(GradientType=0, StartColorstr='#7FA4C4', EndColorstr='#305B80')";

I get this in Internet Explorer 8:


Any idea how I can get this to look like this for IE 8:

This is the site I use to make gradients - including for IE8

I think there may be a problem with the borders of one of the many divs that gets generated:


There's just so many divs with so many classes its hard to know what to do.

This is the ID for what seems to be the div for the top 5px border, but I don't seem to be able to change the height, because it is defined inline, I assume by extjs:


I can't seem to find what produces the border under my gradient.

This image shows the div on top highlighted but how do I reference the lower border div?


And then how do I get rid of them?

In IE dev tools, if I set the height of switchUserWindow_header-frame1TC to 0px it goes away. But height is defined inline in a style, so setting it via CSS even with !important does not seem to work.

The "bottom" border below the gradient seems to be a background, not a border, so I need to figure out what background it is, and make it transparent.

Setting height via CSS with !important DOES work.

Time to figure out that background.
