#5322 closed defect (fixed)

Widgets render taller in IE (ComboBox,TextArea,TitlePane)

IE7 renders the ComboBox?, empty TextArea?, and TitlePane? widgets at about twice the height that they should be. Firefox is fine. This may be a problem with the tundra theme.

Shows ComboBox? in error state rendered in IE7

I think the double height in the ComboBox? may be due to that X bellow the warning image that can be seen in the combo.png attachment.

That X is for accessibility mode, when background-images are turned off so we print an X character instead, but it shouldn't be showing up for you. See

Can you attach a testcase? And also compare against that test above to see why it's working and your test is failing. Perhaps there's some race condition loading CSS? What if you move your CSS load to the very first thing in your file?

When I attempted to isolate my test case the extracted html rendered correctly in IE. So the ComboBox? issue is my fault.

However, the other two widgets definitely have problems with their test cases. If you look at the test_Textarea or test_TitlePane pages you'll notice extra height in the widgets within Internet Explorer. I've tested with IE7 and am not certain if the problem exists in IE6.

The TitlePane? problem is being handled in #5236.

As for TextArea?, that's an artifact of using an iframe in IE and each line of text being treated as a paragraph rather than just having <br> between them. It's just how IE works. But would be handled by using a normal textarea, see #4979 (which I'd be willing to do if the code turns out reasonable, even though I closed the defect).

Hmm, my last comment had an error. IE uses a <div>, not an <iframe>. But each "line in the TextArea?" is really a separate <p>, and that's why there is extra spacing. Maybe we need CSS to make paragraph-spacing 0 (but just inside that div, not on the whole page).

The ComboBox? fix is too complex to risk on the 1.0 branch. The TitlePane? fix could be added. As for TextArea?, it's just CSS, but we can defer till 1.1 because it's not a critical issue.
