When pressing ESC twice all numeric values in a web form dissapear, concerns only IE6
Posted on 2008-10-01
Concerns a system delevopped by our IT vendor in Visual Studio 2008 using .NET Framework 3.5 enginge working as ASP.NET, syntax VB.Net 9.
Entity Framework is used to communicate with database and show data in the web browser.
The problem is that on a web form with a lot of numeric input fields, after entering some data but not saving the form and when the cursor is positioned in one of the numeric fields, after pressing ESC twice all entered numeric values dissapear.
This does not happen in Firefox 3 and IE7 but only in IE6.
Please let me know whether this is a known issue in IE6 and whether we are forced to upgrade all users to IE7 or Firefox or whether this could be handled properly by IE6 by configuring the browser or applying changes to the code. Upgrading is not a preferable solution yet since a lot of users are involved.
