Combobox popup in wrong position-FF3, AW 2.5.2

If the page is scrolled down when the Combobox popup is triggered it's positioned where the object used to be before scrolling.

Yes, this is a bug in AW 2.5.2 :-(

Could be fixed with the following patch -
if (AW.ff3){

    
AW.getLeft = function(element){
        return 
element.getBoundingClientRect().left -
            
document.documentElement.getBoundingClientRect().left;
    };

    
AW.getTop = function(element){
        return 
element.getBoundingClientRect().top -
            
document.documentElement.getBoundingClientRect().top;
    };
}

Add this code to the end of aw.js or any place in your code before using AW objects.

i also noticed this problem is happening on firefox version 1 as well. can this patch be modified to work on FF1 as well?

No, this is for FF3 only.

FF1 does not have getBoundingClientRect() and instead getBoxObjectFor() is used, which has bugs in early FF1 versions (FF1.5 is fine).

Fixed in AW 2.5.3 -

Alex;

I'm still getting the combo popup under the text input box in FF3 using 2.5.3. In IE7 they appear on top of the text box. Here is my sample code

<script>
if (window.parent.Level>=3)
{
var RowHeightCombo = new AW.UI.Combo;
RowHeightCombo.setControlText("Row Height");
RowHeightCombo.setItemText(
["Small",
"Normal",
"Large",
]);
RowHeightCombo.setItemCount(9);
// make input box readonly
RowHeightCombo.getContent("box/text").setAttribute("readonly", true);

// fix for 'contentEditable' attribute
RowHeightCombo.onControlEditStarted = function(){
this.getContent("box/text").element().contentEditable = false;
}

RowHeightCombo.onControlTextChanged = function() {
var ST=RowHeightCombo.getItemValue(RowHeightCombo.getSelectedItems());

switch (ST)
{
case "Small" :
obj.setRowHeight(20);
obj.refresh();
break;

case "Normal" :
obj.setRowHeight(50);
obj.refresh();
break;

case "Large" :
obj.setRowHeight(100);
obj.refresh();
break;

}

};

document.write(RowHeightCombo);
}
</script>


Here is a link to view what's happening
