Hi!

I'm using the Browser widget in a dialog to display a JSP that lets the
user select something. To close the dialog when the user has selected an
item from the JSP, I use a LocationListener that waits for a special URL
to cancel the navigation process and close the dialog.

On some systems this works fine, on others, nothing happens. I found
out, that some versions of IE trigger the BeforeNavigate2 event before
navigating to an URL, and some trigger the BeforeNavigate event instead.
The Browser widget listens only to the BeforeNavigate2 event.

Has anybody similar experience or may be a workaround for this?

Hi Florian,

The Browser assumes an IE version of >= 5.5. I'm guessing that the systems
that fire BeforeNavigate for you are older than this?

Hi Grant!

No, all IE 6. I tested the following versions:

don' work:
6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519
6.0.2800.1106.xpsp1.020828-1920

works:
6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.040919-1003

What really iritates me is the fact that the version that works is
between the two versions that don't.
