Coldfusion 8 cfchart bleeds through modal cfwindow when opened in IE 8
Posted on 2011-03-03
We're just about to upgrade to IE 8 here and I've been testing all the Coldfusion web apps to make sure no issues arise. So far only one has cropped up. In a nutshell I display an employee's current project load along with a pie chart that shows projects that will come due within the next 30 days broken down into 1 week sectors. They can review a specific project by clicking the project name and it will open up in a modal cfwindow.
The IE 8 Specific issue is that the pie chart stays on top so that it blocks that portion of the cfwindow screen and its contents. Below is a simplified version of how it is laid out in code. This has not been an issue in IE 6, which we are still on. We are using Coldfusion 8 on Windows 2003 web servers.
Things I have already tried are setting the Z-Index and repositioning the pie charts.
<cfpod title="My Work Load" height="700" width="900">
Projects are displayed with clickable links that open up in a cfwindow to review project
<cfchart pieslicestyle="solid" format="flash" showborder="no">
<cfwindow name="ProjectReviewWindow" center="True" modal="true" draggable="true" closable="true" resizable="true" initShow="false"></cfwindow>
