IE Standards testing

Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 works best rendering KitCAD i3 KGC (versions before 31st May 2009) in Quirks mode (IE=5) as a work-around.

The KitCAD i3 KGC (versions before 31st May 2009) is NOT working with Internet Explorer Standards 8 (IE=8).  The KGC script rendering works when using Internet Explorer Standards 7 (IE=7).  The past scripting interfaces for KitCAD i3 requires the default Quirks mode (IE=5) to function.

VML does still function in Internet Explorer 8 (with no real performance loss) and KitCAD i3 KGC scripting in future will be upgraded to take advantage of the new requirement/changes.

The only corrections required for KitCAD i3 KGC to be displayed using Internet Explorer 8 Standards are :-

  • v:group needs a CSS display property of block to become visible;
  • And childparent with id’s of KGraphicControl* needs a onload/onchange CSS property change for style.top and style.left to 0px.

      Upgraded KitCAD i3 KGC to use Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0 Standards rendering for IE +8 web browsers as of the 31st May, 2009.

      A web browser catche refresh/delete of previous KitCAD i3 KGC is required – see Clear Catche, and instructions.

      Fault with KitCAD i3 KGC TEST Setup and _wf2foei.html; using IE8 Standards.
      This only affects KitCAD i3 KGC TEST; run from file:///C:/Program%20Files/Kitchen/KitCADi3/test/_Index.html
