How to migrate classic ASP application from IE 6.0 to IE 8.0?

Hi Experts,

I am supporting an application, which is written in Classic ASP. Currently users are accessing the application using IE 6.0, and everything is working fine. Now the Client wanted the users to migrate to I.E 8.0. How can I achieve this with proper testing and without having any trouble to the application. This application is making use of Javascripts for lots of calculations.

Could you guys please assist me on this. Also, advanced thanks to your advices.

regards
Dileep.

Hi, welcome to JavaScript cross-browser issues !!!

Usually this problem comes if you do your work with classical JavaScript. Please try to make use of frameworks like JQuery or DOJO...

They will take care of these issues. But since you have your code already in pure JavaScript, I can share my experience.

1) I have used onload function that access a variable of another frame's JS. In IE6 it works fine, as the onload will be called only after loading all the frames, whereas in IE8, it will be called once the individual frame is loaded !!!

2) Try to make use of AJAX and DIV tags instead of frames.

Hope you will get more inputs from our other experts ! All the best !

Regards
