IE8 null sends "null" bug!

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Bengt Samuelsson, Dec 30, 2009.

  1. I can't find out how to send a bug report! OK!
    Here it is! I have a homepage where I using AJAX teknik to get data from an
    database back to for ex
    <input type="text" name="adress" id="adress" size="35" value="">
    or to
    <div id="Fabrikat_namn"></div>
    The Problem with IE8 is there is not am null "\0" but the string "null" when
    the real value is just null. I can se this as an serius bug in javascript in

    IE8 Have changed a bit besouse of this bug:
    document.getElementById(target).innerHTML = (content != null) ? content : "";
    document.getElementById(target).value = (value != null) ? value : "";
    It shuld be this code:
    document.getElementById(target).innerHTML = content;
    document.getElementById(target).value = value;

    An empty string is not null.

    Hi Bengt, is the Microsoft feedback and issue reporting portal.

    Some MVP's in this newsgroup may be able to raise an issue ticket on your
    behalf. This is the public newsgroup. Your issue
    is best posted in a Visual Studio forum or at the Telerik forums.

    However your description and explanation is very hard to understand. It is
    very important that you state your issues clearly and if possible provide a
    publicly accessible (validated) test case that highlights and isolates your

    Have you read through the Telerik help files. It sounds like you are not
    testing for the IsPostback in your Page_Load event before reading the query
    parameter values.

    target is not a good element Id value as it is also an attribute name.
    Nevertheless your page load event should look something like


    dim sTarget as string=request("target") & ""

    if .IsPostback then
    target.text = sTarget
    end if

    End Sub

    If you are using Telerik RAD controls then you are using Active Server Pages
    which uses Form Post methods. Your issue has nothing to do with javascript
    or IE.
