When using a BorderContainer? with a border inside another BorderContainer? and this is in a hidden div, IE7 throws a "Invalid argument" Exception.

This does not happen on Firefox, IE8 or Chrome.

See the attached testCase.

Thanks for the test case. But call startup() on a BorderContaine inside a hidden <div> isn't supposed to work; it has no way of doing sizing. IE throws an error whereas other browsers fail silently, but either way it doesnt' work.

I have this set up in a page that requires some time to load properly, so I put my entire setup in a hidden div and I show the user a loading animation.

When the loading of the page is done, I display the hidden div and hide the preloader-animation. It works just fine in any other browser, but IE7 comes up with the "Invalid argument" error.

Right now I have a workaround that uses a visible div for the setup of the dojo application (which takes some time to load completely) and I display the preloader div on top of the other div (using z-index and absolute positioning). I don't like this workaround, but it's the only way to get it to work as far as I know.

Do you have any solution for this?

The standard way is to use visibility: hidden on the loading div, but that's essentially the same thing that you are doing. You could also position it off screen while it's rendering, etc.
