FF3 and AW 2.0.1 resize issue

A while back some questions where asked regarding a bug that caused large data strings in a column to overlap into the next column in firefox 3. I am seeing this now (wasn't visible in ff2) and I was wondering if there is a workaround or hot fix that anyone is aware of.

This is fixed in AW 2.5.2. Earlier versions do not support Firefox 3.

is AW 2.5.2 designed to be code compatible with 2.0.1?
Should I be able to replace my ActiveWidgets Directory with the contents of AW 2.5.2 and expect things to work or have there been fundamental changes/deprecations that would not allow this to work?

Anyone have an answer for me here?

There are few minor breaking API changes in the grid control -

Content template renamed to View template,
panel indices changed from [0,1,2] to ["left", "center", "right"]/["top", "center", "bottom"].

The standard examples still work without any changes, however if you were doing some heavy customizations you may need to change your code because of the differences in focus behavior, virtual mode implementation etc.

I tried drop replacing the activewidgets directory with the recent version, and half my UI disappeared! I have divided the UI into left and right panels, the right panel had a tabbed subpanel and each tab contained a grid with some buttons. The whole right panel doesn't render. Does it make sense that the above mentioned API changes would cause the entire right panel to vanish?

No. When I mentioned 'panels' I was talking about internal elements of the grid control, there are more details in the discussion here -


However this is most likely not related to the panels you are using for a page layout.

Did you try to run your code in debugger and see where it breaks?

The problem with AW 2.0.1 in FF3 described at the top of this post can be avoided with the following CSS tweak:

.aw-gecko .aw-item-box {min-width:1px}
