IE8 IE9 blank page

Recommended Posts



We are using FusionCharts XT 3.3.1 in javascript. The charts are used inside widgets that are called by a main page. Because it is inside widget, the fusionchart.js files need to be loaded dynamically only when needed, we are using jQuery.ajax() with dataType:"script" to load the files (or in other words, jQuery.getScript()).


Everything works well on Chrome, Firefox, IE10. But on IE9 and mainly IE8 we have issues were the main page becomes completely blank at load when fusionChart.js is loaded. Most notably when the file is not in the browser cache.


This is the error we get :

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E)

Message: Permission denied
Line: 3
Char: 4870
Code: 0
URI: http://website/external/jQuery/1.9.1/jquery-1.9.1.min.js

When this errors happens, if we look at the page source, everything has been removed and there is only this line left : <script id="__ie_onload_fusioncharts" defer="defer" src="javascript:void(0)"></script>

This is done by a window.document.write() by fusionchart. Document.write() blocks rendering and it seems the consequence, for heavy HTML pages, on IE8 and IE9, is that everything gets replaced with whatever is in  the document.write().

If I may suggest, you may look at what require.js says about script loading :, look at paragraph 7 and 8.

The head.appendchild(script)  technique would be a better alternative apparently.


We have yet not found alternative solution.
