Internet Explorer crashes when using a modal dialog
Posted on 2005-04-09
I have an application that uses several modal dialogs (showModalDialog) for various features in a page editor. I've been experiencing that when you do too many things within a dialog it will crash IE. One dialog, for example, allows you to upload images and set various image attributes. When you click the save button on the dialog the window is dismissed and the image is placed on the web page. However, if you open the dialog and try to upload more than two images it will crash. Other dialogs also have similar issues. If you open a dialog and make only a limited number of changes then dismiss the dialog it works fine. But when you try to do several things at once within the open dialog it will eventually crash.
Is this possibly something wrong with my code in the dialog, or is there some buffer to do with scripting in IE that is getting overloaded, or just a bug in IE that is causing it to crash?
