Geoportal customized with API - doesn´t load in Internet Explorer

[ Edited ]


I have adapted our GeoPortal with the following code:


$GP.ready(function () {
        categoryIndex: 0,
        xtype: "tbbutton",
        text: "xxx",
	id: "wartung",
        handler: function (b) {

 It works perfectly fine with Firefox and Edge. But Internet Explorer fails to load the Portal at all. It stops with the blue loading screen.

For some reason it works when I open the IE developer tools and then reload the site (usually after the second time of reloading, but only when the developer tools are opened...Seems really strange to me)


Does anyone here have an idea what could be the problem?

Re: Geoportal customized with API - doesn´t load in Internet Explorer

We have also experienced this issue when using the Geospatial Portal SDK web application. It is caused by Internet Explorer compatibility view settings.


Our fix is to force a higher document mode to be selected by Internet Explorer through editing the relevant aspx page (Full.aspx, Map.aspx etc.)

Add the two lines below before the <head> section.


<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge"></meta> 
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9"></meta>

Re: Geoportal customized with API - doesn´t load in Internet Explorer

This days i had been working on a IExplorer problem with one of our portals that inherits from EnterpriseGIS portal, and foud that with iexplorer i had some "errors" that do not happend with Chrome or others...


0x800a1391 - JavaScript runtime error: 'console' is undefined

0x800a1391 - JavaScript runtime error: 'Ext' is undefined


And many more... googleing found lots of references for example about "console" using problems with iexplorer:






So looking where does it fails, find that API.js has this portion of code:


function warn() {
if (!isSet(console) || typeof console.warn !== T_FUNCTION) return;
console.warn.apply(console, Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments));


I just solved this problem by covering this code with a Try/Catch, but i have many other errors arround the code, with JS and iExplorer.


I think our Stup uses v.15ep04 SDK version.

@Colin.Bertram, thanks a lot for this fast and very useful response!

@bferrer, thanks for replying to my post! I didn´t have the time to look into the API.js, but since the solution of Colin worked, I stick with that one Smiley Happy Maybe it works for you as well?
