View Full Version : IE10 on Windows 7 - extjs 3 must be updated now

Extjs v3 has lacked IE10 support too long already. IE10 has been in preview on win 7 for over 3 months so this should not be a surprise. 90% of Windows 7 machines will be auto updated to IE10 breaking our extjs apps. It can't be that much effort for Sencha to fix this issue. To continue to ignore v3 will be disastrous for your customers. Please do what is right and fix this asap. Thanks.

We are not ignoring Ext JS 3 at all, please don't say things that are not true. We have stated that we will be doing another patch release once Ext JS 4.2.0 is released.

Planning to work on v3 in the future is not the same as working on it now. Allowing deployed customer apps to fail in the field because a completely anticipated problem occurs does not constitute support. Take someone off v4 and *support* v3 asap or just admit that deployed failures are less important than v4 updates.

Please explain how the current situation is not ignoring v3?

The team is working on 4.2.0 and we have stated that we will be working on 3.4.2 once that is in GA. So we aren't ignoring it, it will get worked on but has to wait till 4.2.0 is released.

If you need to support IE10, then ways of manually enabling this have been posted in various threads. If your customers are demanding this, then I would suggest you take a look at the source code and implement this yourself. It really isn't very difficult...

Let's try to be completely clear. Are you saying that the official Sencha position is the following:

Deployed v3 apps will be allowed to fail when running in IE on the vast majority of PCs just so that v4.2.0 can be delivered slightly sooner?

I really don't want to believe this....

mitchellsimoens

I will say it again. We have stated that once 4.2.0 GA is released we will turn attention to 3.4.2. This is from product management on a thread here in the forums.

Anyone whose customers us IE on current PCs will need this asap.

If we must try to fix this ourselves, then v3 is effectively unsupported. The fact that it is not difficult and rather well defined makes it all the more strange that Sencha has chosen to ignore this problem so far.

Once again, we are not ignoring it. Our focus is to get 4.2.0 in a GA release, people are also waiting for this release as well. And remember, 3.4.2 will likely be a support subscriber only release.

I'm on it Rich. You have my personal contact information - feel free to call me anytime. I'll have someone update this thread when we can provide some more insight into when Ext v3 will have IE10 fully supported.

Just so that everyone is aware, as of yesterday's announcement by the General Manager of the IE project, IE10 is already available for download to Windows 7 users:

Not exactly sure how long until the auto updates begin, but it could be any time.

This is unacceptable Sencha. You are effectively not supporting IE10 and 3.x.

Just because you say that you support it doesn't make it so.

Just because you say you will support it doesn't make it so.

The solution is that we manually change software we pay you to maintain? Laughable.

Win7 Autodownloads of IE10 happening soon BTW. I guess the SLA means nothing.

You've got to love people who completely ignore everything that has been written, and instead go into auto-rant mode :D

It's not rant, or auto rant mode, it's frustration. Nobody is ignoring anything. ExtJS was supposed to support all browsers. The upgrade to 4.x was not supposed to be this complex, and it was supposed to work. It didn't, thus 3.x is our only option. Like many others in the field, we support our customers' choice of browser, no matter what.

What am I ignoring? What great piece of knowledge am I missing? I am if anything a fair person. Please enlighten me, enlighten us all.

We will be supporting IE10 with Ext JS 3. The auto-update changes our plans a little. I cannot give out dates or our internal plans (which are being changed now) but it is getting more priority than before due to the auto-update.

My companies Ext JS app is only supported on IE7/8/9 and since IE10 has come out nothing has been broken cause we make sure the meta tags are set correctly.
Then you don't have to wait for Sencha to finish adding in support and plus IE can be whatever version it wants.

If people would actually read msdn you can easily avoid any issues with a 2 line fix.
The DOCTYPE and the meta tag in the <head> section. Also just be aware end users can override that in the IE browser options. But we usually turn it off for those users who do that until our company can officially support the browser.

If you follow the little addons to ext 3.4.0 here (http://www.sencha.com/forum/showthread.php?247877-Ext-3.x-support-for-IE-10&p=917603&viewfull=1#post917603), Ext 3 will run under ie10 in most cases without any more changes to your application

Hi all,

Just to let you know I've been working on adding IE 10 support for the 3.x series. So far, things are looking good and we're hoping to get a release out soon.

Automatic updates to Windows 7 and 2008R2 for IE10 went out this past Tuesday. Without a date from Sencha it makes it very hard for me to determine weather we fix this ourselves or wait for you guys to fix it. Unlike many here, our solution is installed on-prem for our customer's sites, we don't host, so we need to deploy this out as a service pack as quickly as possible to them.

Another month has gone by...
And Q1 2013 has ended...

Any update on when we might see this fixed??

Ext JS 3.4.1a, which will be a public release to support IE10, is very very close. I believe the bits for IE10 are in SVN already (have been for a little while). It's in QA right now, not expecting anything from them but QA is last step before release (unless some bugs pop up in the release).

Is there any news ? My EXTJS Web can't work on IE10... (and migrate a complex web app, 800.000 code lines to EXTJS 4 is simply impossible)

Hi

I still have a problem with Ext.Direct on IE 10. I downloaded new release 3.4.1.1 (commercial ver.) But its not fixing problem.
I tried runing examples (Direct TreeLoader and Direct Form) with the same efect.

Console showing me error in line 27016 ext-all-debug.js (response.type is undefined).
When I switch to IE 9, everything works.

IE 10 sending only request headers without posts in XHR Requests (every XHR including EXT.Direct).
Reseting IE10 Settings to default resolves this problem.
It is very strange. I don't have idea which setting causing the problem.

Any word yet on when ExtJS 3.4.2 (w IE10 support) is available? From what this and various other post have mentioned, it was suppose to be out after 4.2.0 release and in Q1 of 2013. I would appreciate an ETA.
