    [CLOSED] IE7 and IE8 panel auto height

    Hi there,

    I'm having issues in IE7 & IE8 when I try to build a a form with a form inside when I want both to expand vertically automatically with the content. It's like auto-height is not working in these browsers.

    This code works with no problems in IE10+ and the rest of the web browsers, however, it does not work properly in IE7 & IE8 (I haven't tested in IE9)

    *this snippet was put together for test purposes, real code is part of a larger system that generates controls dynamically

    Can you simplify your sample? I'm not entirely sure what I should be looking at.

    Is the BottomBar and your JavaScript functions related to the problem?

    This is the simplified code:

    		panel.Width = 700;
    		panel.MinHeight = 400;

    		panel.Render();
    		uiCanva.Title = "Form: ";
    	}
    
    	private Ext.Net.TextField generateTextbox(string i)
    	{
    		TextField field = null;
    		string emptyText = "";

    IE10, FF, Chrome will display a form that has stretched vertically to accommodate the content, IE7 and IE8 have a predefined height and cut off the form. What I need is to have a consistent looking form; a form that stretches vertically to accommodate content.

    A JavaScript error occurs there.

    The IDs of the Components must start from a letter because it is used as ids of HTML elements.

    Please replace
    ID = i
    with
    ID = "a" + i

    Also please remove
    panel.Render();
    No need to call the Render method in Page_Load. It is supposed to be used in a DirectEvent/DirectMethod only.

    Thanks Danil.
    However, that's not the issue I'm trying to fix.

    Please look at the images attached in the comment with the simplified code. This is the issue:
    IE10, FF, Chrome will correctly display a form that has stretched vertically to accommodate the content; however, IE7 and IE8 have a predefined height and cut off the form. What I need is to have a consistent looking form; a form that stretches vertically to accommodate content.

    One image is how it looks in IE10 and another one is how it looks in IE7 and IE8.

    Yes, I understand. But A JavaScript error breaks layouting. If fix the error, then the layout will be OK. At least, it is for me.
