Subject [jira] Commented: (MYFACES-1691) beforeUnload event handler breaks form submission
Date Fri, 11 Apr 2008 23:02:05 GMT


Leonardo Uribe commented on MYFACES-1691:

I have tested this on firefox and IE and it's a specific bug for IE. 

So, the solution for avoid this is as suggested, surround submit call with a try catch.

> I am using the onBeforeUnload event to prevent the user leaving the page without first
saving their work. 
> If the user cancels the page navigation, further navigation in the page fails. I tracked
this down to this call in oamSubmitForm
> document.forms[formName].submit();
> In IE when the user cancels navigation of the page the form.submit method throws an exception.
This isn't caught in oamSubmitForm and so it doesn't complete cleanly.
> I fixed this by changing the 2 calls to form.submit too:
> try { document.forms[formName].submit(); } catch (e) {}
> oamSubmitForm now completes cleanly and further navigation in the page succeeds.
