I did various research in rich face version.
I initially had a problem in closing modal panel component in IE8 using richfaces 3.3.0.
The pick list and calendr worked well in richfaces 3.3.0 in IE8.
And so, I upgraded to 3.3.1, and modal panel component close action worked very well.
But the picklist and calendar components did not work and I get the following JS errors:
1) labels is null or not an object (IE 8) (calendar.js.jsf)
2) Object doesnt support this action (ListBase.js.jsf)
3) this.shuttletable is null or not an object (ListBase.js.jsf)
Finally, i took the latest 3.3.3-final stable version. The issue got resolved.
But my modal panel and autosuggest does not seem to work now.
Any help is much appreciated in this regard.
at first try 3.3.3.Final. 3.3.0 was released before IE8 has officially released or right after. So we had not checked and fixed issues before that release. And 3.3.3 contains different fixes for IE8
