Getting the Grid to Work the Same Across (most) Browsers

Just recently, a grid component in a workflow application stopped functioning properly in Chrome and FireFox. This grid is supposed to allow people to click on a row, then click on a button on the page to edit the record represented by that row. When people were loading the grid, however, the rows were not selectable and the font was messed up.

One workaround for this issue is to disable browser detection for that specific workflow application. To do this, a folder named App_Browsers is added to the root of the workflow application's project folder (for my application, the full path is E:\Program Files\Symantec\Workflow\WorkflowDeploy\Release\RFC) on the Workflow server with a single file named all.browser in it. The contents of the file are:

<browsers>
  <browser refID="Default">
    <capabilities>
      <capability name="preferredRenderingMime" value="text/html" />
      <capability name="preferredRenderingType" value="html32" />
      <capability name="requiresFullyQualifiedRedirectUrl" value="false" />
    </capabilities>
  </browser>
</browsers>
 
Once this addition has been made to the project folder, the grid should behave normally in Chrome and Firefox.

That's awesome information! I've honestly gotten sick of the grid component myself and have moved onto just building an html table with whatever style I want, but this may just push me back toward the grid.

If a post solves your issue, please mark it as a solution. It makes these forums better for everyone.
