The current issue when rendering Lightboxes based on AJAX renering are:

  • the hidden dialog group is displayed briefly
  • there is no page blocking while the dialogGroup is rendered.

The retrieveComponent blocks only the retrieved item which in our case should be invisible anyway. We are also delaying opening the lightbox until the content is rendered, otherwise there is have a major lightbox sizing issue.

The final solution will probably be a lightbox specific or a total rewrite of retrieveComponent function (krad.ajax.js).

Are you working on this issue or should we throw it in the unassigned pool?


Comment by Claus Niesen [ 07/Dec/12 ]

No, I'm not working on this jira. It looks like the hidden dialog group doesn't get displayed anymore. So only the page blocking during dialogGroup rendering is outstanding.

I think it would be good to do a thorough test of the Dialog Test View as there are some weird behaviors and error hidden. Maybe they are known already. e.g.

  • Client Ajax Dialog's buttons render as check boxes
  • Clicking yes/no on Radio Buttons and some other dialogs causes blank page/non displayed incident report

I agree. I'll unassign this issue for now. Would you be available for a code review on dialogs? Also, would you mind to enter Jiras for the other issues you found?


Comment by Claus Niesen [ 07/Dec/12 ]


Yes, add me to the code review. I'll create a Jira for the two issues I found.
