IE6 CSS-Rollover Bug

Posted by Chandan B Kumar on May 30, 2008

In the Cúram classic application theme, the out-of-the-box left side navigation menu can pose some risks towards the application performance. This is because of the image rollover effect built using CSS and html.

What happens is, when the user clicks the hyperlink in the navigation menu, the IE Progress Bar stops as soon as the user moves the mouse off the hyperlink. For the user, this appears as though she has not clicked the link properly or the page has completely loaded. Either ways, the user now starts to click the same link twice thrice causing multiple server hits and thus decreasing performance.

Tom Lee has pointed out the same issue and has attempted to provide a solution. His solution would work if only images are used.

My recommendation to Cúram is to knock of the rollover images or use Java Script in place of CSS and html. What is your recommendation?

Cúram pop-ups

Posted by Chandan B Kumar on May 21, 2008

In situations where you want to override the Cúram out-of-the-box pop-up with your custom one, only for a particular occurrence, for e.g. you want to override the date selector pop-up for the domain definition SVR_DATE in a specific page, then Cúram does not provide a clear solution. Below is a workaround for such situations.

As an example, I am using the date-selector pop-up. The Cúram date selector pop-up is a jsp located under …\webclient\CuramCDEJ\lib\curam\web\popups. I would like to override this pop-up with my-date-selector pop-up in the UIM My_TestPage.uim.

1. Create my-date-selector.jsp with your required functionality.

2. Place the jsp under …\webclient\CuramCDEJ\lib\curam\web\popups directory. If you want you can change the location, but make sure the build picks up the file.

3. In My_TestPage.uim, place the following lines of code below the <PAGE_TITLE> element.

    <JSP_SCRIPTLET>
      out.print(“<script>\n”);
      out.print(“setPopupProperties(‘../CDEJ/popups/my-date-selector.jsp’,’SVR_DATE’,”,200,170,false);\n”);
      out.print(“</script>\n”);
    </JSP_SCRIPTLET>   

4. Build client.

Adobe SVG Viewer

Posted by Chandan B Kumar on May 15, 2008

Now that there is no future development or fixes planned for Adobe SVG Viewer, I am curious to see what Curam is up to. The latest Curam 5.0 major release still relies on Adobe SVG viewer. Per Adobe, the customer support for Viewer will be discontinued on January 1, 2009. However, the Adobe SVG Viewer will still be available for download from Adobe website.

I presume, Curam might continue to rely on Adobe Viewer for some more time and later move on to an alternate viewer. But I strongly feel that they will carry on with the SVG format for all their dynamic graphic needs.
