Why the Internet Explorer 9 is very slow in display mode?


TABEX/4 Versionen prior to 4.2.2:

In the style sheet "custstyle.css" in the sub directory "customer" of the TABEX/4 Table Manager a modification for Internet Explorer 6 has been implemented to display table cells with transparent borders properly.

/* ----- IE6 hack for transparancy border ----- */
*html .inputfieldtextro {
  border-color: #010101;
  filter: chroma(color=#010101);

This entry causes long response times for Internet Explorer 9. Therefore, this entry should be deleted from the style sheet.

Note: if there are additional clients running in IE6 and IE9, cells with transparent borders are not correctly displayed in IE6,

In TABEX/4 Version 4.2.2 the problem has been fixed by commenting the lines.

Valid from

Version 4.2.2
