Re: Object Param "classid" hangs IE7
These HTML samples have been simplified to demonstrate an issue. I ventured
down this road due to a Java applet that was hanging IE7. Other browsers
and earlier versions of IE are not hung by the top HTML example.
Have you looked in the bug database*? It seems something
which might affect 5-10% of applets on the internet may have
been noticed and reported.
"propertyFile" parameter remains to prevent the example from crashing IE7.
The "classid" value "clsid:8AD9C840-044E-11D1-B3E9-00805F499D93" instructs
Internet Explorer to use the latest installed version of Java Plug-in.
Why not use web start for the versioning? Try this applet..
<http://www.physci.org/jws/#jtest> or more specifically..
Does anyone know why the long-standing "classid" parameter is not liked by
IE 7? What can be done to keep IE7 from hanging on this?
Use web start to launch the applet.
This HTML WITH the "classid" parameter causes Internet Explorer 7 to hang
for a while.
As an aside, what do you mean 'hang for a while'? Does that
mean simply that the browser 'pauses' or 'freezes' and blocks
user input before continuing? How long? Are we talking a
fraction of a second? 3-4 seconds? 30 seconds?
