Text boxes on IE6 are pure white. They don't have the gradient background.

(its commented out in tundra.css because the gradient is a png. are we deciding to make gifs from png's and adding in .dj_ie6 to classes that use .png for backgrounds, or just using gifs all across?

you're going to kick yourself...


  • IE6: can't display PNG images with gradient transparency.
  • Want to use filter property for those images, but then need to specify a path relative
  • to the main page, rather than relative to this file... using gifs for now */

.dj_ie6 .tundra .dijitInputField, .dj_ie6 .tundra .dijitComboBoxInput, .dj_ie6 .tundra .dijitSpinnerInput


background:transparent; background-image: url("images/dojoTundraGradientBg.gif");

punting as polish. the commented code above have been fixed, but it is intentional at this point because the transparent .gif looks awful. any gfx people able to figure out how to force a nice alpha gradient in gif (across 8px) with all colors available, please do so. all my attempts have been pixelized.

(In [10686]) fixes #4013 - add back in gif for inputbox gradient in ie6 - validation is being overly polite at the moment, so can't see if invalid input breaks the "non-transparent gif" being used to make this work. when validation modifies background color, it will have to set background-image:none in ie6, or else you'll see the white background color in the image.
