Mac compatability

This is an awesome product! I had totally intended to use the ActiveWidgets grid functionality at work for our product, but this thing doesn't work at all on IE/Mac! Now granted, I know how horrible IE 5.1 is, but I had hoped it would work enough for some basic stuff. No dice!

Any way there could be some compatability workarounds/fixes for IE/Mac? The majority of our customers use Macs (despite our grumbles) and I would love to use this for them.

I never tried it on IE/Mac, so this platform is not supported. :-(

I suspect it breaks there because of the absence of ActiveXObject or XMLHTTPRequest classes. So one thing to try is to remove XML-related classes, i.e. Active.HTTP.Request, Active.Text.Table, Active.XML.Table. Go to /source/lib/activeui.js and remove the following lines:


After that there is a small chance that array-based data will work. Again, the above is just wild guess - I did not test it.


Also, the grid apparently works on Mac OS X in Firebird/Mozilla browsers.
