    problem modalPanel ie7 and ff difference

    Peter Whitmore Newbie

      Hello,

      I'm using seam 2.1 , richfaces 3.2.2 GA and JBoss 4.2.3GA.

      I have a commanButton on my page which starts a long running task and opens a modalPanel. The modalPanel has a commandButton which allows the user to cancel. This calls an action in on of my seam managed beans.

      I have tried different combinations of h:form, a4j:form, h:commandButton and a4j:commandButton without success.

      This works fine in firefox 3 but the cancel action is only called after everything else is finished when called from ie7.

      As most of my users will need to use ie7 I hope that some one can help me.

      Additional info:

      The long running method is called via Events.instance().raiseEvent().

      Using the asynchronous version of that will obviously return before the event is finished and I don't want that to happen.

      Additionally, I can't get the modalPanel to display at all on safari or chrome. Any ideas?

      Any advice would be great.

      Thanks.
      Peter
