LightGray in IE6

By , 08/03/2010 11:25 AM

IE6 just won’t die. I know, continue to support it is a bad idea, but unfortunately many developers have no choice, some environments, especially corporate intranet will continue to use it until second coming (and then Safari will rule the world).

So, here is a small tip: If you need to use a named color from CSS3+ specification that old tired browser doesn’t understand – just use color’s hex equivalent instead. For example instead of

style="border: solid 1px LightGray;"

which will do nothing in IE6 use

style="border: solid 1px #d3d3d3;"

which will render nice light-gray border.

UltraWebGrid does not display last column’s right border (solution)

By , 08/03/2010 10:58 AM

If you’re using Infragistics UltraWebGrid and experienced an odd behavior where the grid does not display the right-most vertical border line – there’s a workaround.

By default 2 elements contribute to the grid border – border from RowStyleDefault property and border from FrameStyle property. For some reason IE6/7 (yes, some people still use those) do not render the right border of the last column, even though all 3 properties (BorderColor, BorderStyle and BorderWidth) are set. So the solution is to have FrameStyle lend that border:

  1. Expand RowStyleDefault -> BorderDetails property and set StyleRight to None – this is done, so the double border won’t render in IE8 and other browsers where the border is displayed correctly in the first place
  2. Expand FrameStyle -> BorderDetails property and set ColorRight, StyleRight and WidthRight properties to the desired color, style and width (e.g. LightGray, Solid, 1px)

As a result, the right border is displayed correctly in all versions of IE.
