View Full Version : Quicktips Shadow rotates 90 degrees in IE 7, Ext alpha rev 5

in Firefox is it correct.

Maybe a css bug?

What do you mean exactly? :) Any chance of a screenshot?

cls:'x-btn-text-icon bmenu',
tooltip: 'Quicktips.....'

Might have been an old bug that was fixed. I can't seem to get it here (IE6 or 7). Can you check it with the next rev and let me know if it's still there?

The funny Thing is, its not in your menu example on the little icon.
in my scenario after pagereload the first moving over the button shows the shaddow correct, but than the shadow rotats.
i have only a naked Borderlayout.
<div id="center" class="x-layout-inactive-content">
<div id="toolbar"></div>
<div id="Grid"></div>// for a later Grid

Micha, what kind of doc type are you using?

I had the same problem in IE7 when i used XHTML doc type.

Try to change to

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

I've changed to 4.01 Transitional, same kind of error.
First hover is ok, than rotates the shadow.

Dunno if this will fix the problem, but the doctype mentioned above isn't quite right.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> or
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

I can't find the articles atm, but have read some good arguments against using XHTML doctypes...

first: Jack , please dont hate me :roll:
i would only report these little things.

IE7: the Shadow from Previous Page Button (GridPagebar) isnt correct, maybe that have something to do with the Page-Input Field.

Firefox 2.x: let the mouse stay over a Pagebar Button, the Qtip pops up and down, in IE7 Qtip stays like a charm.

Don't know if there was any final resolution on this?

But I can verify that this still doesn't work in alpha 3 rev 4 with either of the following doctypes.


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

I have a simple toolbar with four buttons. And now this is really confusing.

Rollover a button in the toolbar - no quicktip.
Rollover any other button - correct quicktip.
Rollover any button again - quicktip with shadow rotated 90 degrees.

The quicktips only appears to work correctly with this doctype.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

i just finished fixing some small quirks in strict mode to get my folder icons at least in IE7 to work when i noticed the weird shadows on the tooltips :(( :(( :((

isn't there some omnipotent being in the universe capable of removing IE from existence???

It may seem that way. However, that same omnipotent being would need to wipe every other browser off the planet as well as they are all fatally flawed in one way or another. Personally, I'll take IE's flaws over the flaws of the others, but maybe that's because I'm far more familiar with them.
