Subject RE: Collapsed icon in tree shows as square in IE
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2007 10:13:52 GMT
Thanks for the feedback Ritchie and Daniel.  I did notice the varied
rendering of these default expanded and collapsed icons on different
machines.  We currently use Tahoma as our default font family, which is
supposed to cover a wide range of languages.

In any case, I think I'll try the icon override route.

I looked into this as well. For me, it was caused by fonts. The 'icons'
are just Unicode characters, and for some fonts I'd got those squares in
IE. IIRC, Verdana didn't work but Arial did.

You should also be able to get around it by customizing the icons with
actual images, but I never got that to work.

Hi Shawn,

I've managed to 'solve' my problem.

I've added the following to my stylesheet:

content:url(/skins/beach/images/showarrow.gif); width:16px; height:

content:url(/skins/beach/images/hidearrow.gif); width:16px; height:

This works correctly on Firefox and IE6.

Subject: Collapsed icon in tree shows as square in IE

Has anyone ever seen the collapse icon in IE appear as an empty square
instead of the right-pointing triangle?  The expanded icon is fine, and
this behavior is only seen in IE (FireFox shows a correct icon).  I am
overriding the default colors in CSS (via skin selectors), and the color
of the square is accurate.


The tree demo works fine in both browsers.


Thanks in advance,
