Iframe in IE 6.0 Urgent

Hi

I have a problem with Iframes in internet explorer 6.0
Seems like my popups/calenders and menu's not gets rendered inside my iframe

Though everything works flawless in internet explorer 7.0 (no problems at all)
do need some service pack or update ?

My current version of IE 6 is : ver 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254

Any suggestions or links to KB's are very much appreciated

If you go to the ifram referenced pages directory, do you get any problems that way?

I'm not too sure if I can tell by the version number as to if you have IE6 SP1, but most of IE6 is now on SP1, so I guess what i am saying is make sure you have it:

Or if you have a link for me to test, I can try and test it, as I have SP1 IE6.

It may just be that whatever you are trying to do in IE6 is simply not supported in IE6, but they improved the support for IE7 thus it works in IE7.

There are lots of code all over the place which will work in 1 browser but not the other, whether it is FF, IE6, IE7 or any of the other ones, maybe the code you have simply won't work with IE6.

This is a big application that are developed to our intranet application.

So i need to find some kind of solution.

ill descripe some of the problems

1) i can see a menu but the menu items doesn't drop down
2) i can see a calender/datepicker but i can't get it to drop down.

Look at the bottom left of the IE6 window after clicking on something which doesn't work, is there a little yellow exclamation mark? If you see this, then try and double click on the exclamation mark and see what the javascript error is.

What do you mean by when you refresh the page it works? When you first load the page it doesn't work? If there is no yellow exclamation mark on the bottom left of IE, then there are no javascript errors.

if i go to the url then the page shows but none of the functionallity works.
now if then press F5 or refresh the page/aplication when i am on the actual(url) page then
every thing works.

doing the same in IE7.....following the url and getting to the actual page then it works without refreshing

vbturboAuthor Commented:
i could build a script that do a refresh when the page loads when arriveing to the url as a temporary solution
but i need to find a proper solution to this.

Does MS not have any KB's on this rendering issue?

It seems that IE6 doesn't like iframe contents which are not loaded from the same domain, is this the case?

vbturboAuthor Commented:
hmmm..... gets even more weird now.

the problem also apears within the domain. when navigating with in the domain i need to refresh each time
i arrive to a new url, but when i arrive to the domain and do the refresh(of the page) and then navigate within the Iframe to other pages! then i do not need to refresh as long all the navigation occours within the frame.


......help

nizsmo;

After i removed a link to a style sheet in then main page everything works just fine.
now  i at least eliminated the problem down to a style sheet.

Thanks for your patience and time.

Note:

Seems like the stylesheet in the Iframe page gets overriden by the mainpage stylesheet.

I thought that the rendering process should run in each seperate threads.

vbturbo,

Glad you found what is wrong, weird how it is associated to the stylesheet!
Well done on your part!

It was actually a content positioning declaration in css file.

 width = 100%
 Height = 100%
 float = 100
 absolute position=false

im not a work now so i cant provide you with the exact 4 lines that course'd the impact.
But it is really weird.......we were amazeingly lucky to caught this bug after developing for 2 month now on this project in IE 7
