    Blinking Shadow for ModalPanel

    Paul Baker Apprentice

      Using Richfaces 3.3.0 SNAPSHOT 2008-11-08

      I have an odd problem where the shadow around a modalPanel blinks (or alternates btwn shadow and no shadow). To make matters worse, this happen only sporadically. (I did say odd problem)...

      Below are two images that show the modalPanel with and without a shadow. The speed of blinking or alternating btwn shadow and non-shadow varies.

      With Shadow right and lower edge of modalPanel
      http://picbite.com/image/6999cnsab/

      Without Shadow right and lower edge of modalPanel
      http://picbite.com/image/6998dtmzg/

      What could be causing this strange blinking of the shadow?

      I tried setting the style="text-decoration:none", I did not think that this would do anything (and it didn't).

          Hello,

          Can you please tell in what browser the problem is reproduced?

            Browser is IE7.

              Hi,

              I have just tried in two configurations for 3.2.2.GA:
              1) JBoss 4.2; JSF Sun RI 1.2; facelets; IE7
              2) tomcat 6; myfaces 1.2.4; JSP; IE7

              - and it looks fine for me.

              Could you please describe your environment?

              Best Regards,
              Tsikhon Kuprevich

                HI Tsikhon, Thank-you for looking into this.

                My configuration is the same as your "1" except that I am using Richfaces 3.3.0 SNAPSHOT 2008-11-08.

                I have several strange problems that may be all related.
                The other odd one is that the MenuBar become disabled after a few server hops. It could be 1 hop or 100 hops. But after awhile the menuBar stops functioning. It is as if the associated javascript became unloaded.

                Here is an image that illustraites the problem:
                http://picbite.com/image/7233iapia/

                Here are a few files that may help.

                Please let me know if you see anything odd. Is it possible that the javascript is getting droped for the MenuBar component during the rerendering of the content section?

                  Hello, pbaker01.

                  Issue not reproducible under jboss server 4.2.2, jsf1_2.10(Sun RI), richfaces 3.3.0-SNAPSHOT, IE7.

                  No modalPanel blinks was noticed.

                    Hi, Thanks for looking into this...
                    It is such an odd problem, I'm not surprised that you were not able to
                    reproduce. Keep in mind, it was just the modalPanel shawdow that was
                    blinking not the entire modalPanel.

                    I'll start a new thread on the problem with the ToolBar that I described
                    above. It seems as if the associated javascript is unloaded or dropped
                    between ajax server hops.

                    Thanks VERY much for looking into this!!!

                      Hi, thanks for participation. Your comment is important for us. We will keep in mind 1st issue about modalPanel shadow blinking. The 2nd issue related with ToolBar will be verified separately.
