ui dialog content showing blank in IE8

Permalink
Not sure if some script I've added may be affecting this but for some reason, the ui dialog popups are showing no content in IE8. For example, if I click to add a new block (any block), the ui dialog popup appears but with nothing inside of it. In the IE8 developer tools, it is also showing nothing inside the dialog. It just never loads in the content for some reason. I'm also not seeing any JS errors.

Does anyone have any ideas of what could possibly cause this. It works fine in IE9+ and all other browsers.

Hello TNTdesign,

I know it is not the answer you want to hear, but it is going to become increasingly more difficult to make current scripts run in IE8.

The IE version is up to IE10 now, so the best solution is to update the browser, or use a different one.

There is such a small amount of people still using IE8, you will end up spending a lot of time for just a few people.

I hope this helps some,
John-Paul

Thanks. My problem with that is that my client is forced to be on IE8 so I have to make it all work in IE8. Thing is that the UI dialog popup used to work fine in IE8 and now it isn't. I know I'm not providing a lot of info to go off of but I was just wondering if anyone had experienced a similar issue and might have some insight into what could be happening.

A long shot I know but it could be your css is overriding the blocks text color to be the same as the dialog background color (probably white)and thus it appears there is no text..
Again a long shot, but worth a look..

Cool, thanks. I'll check into it but I think I looked at the UI Dialog in IE8's developer tools and it appeared totally empty, as if it never added any content to the dialog at all.

The trouble with IE8 is the developer tools are just as bad a s the browser, so it can be hard to track down problems.

If you can find a tool equivalent to a network console, you can check the ajax request/response that loads the dialog body.
