#566 closed defect (fixed)

Does not honor 'cols' or 'rows' on textarea in MSIE

Reported by: snowhare@… Owned by: gogo
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: Xinha Core Version:
Severity: major Keywords: MSIE rows cols

Description (last modified by gogo)

The window is forced to the minimum possible height and width regardless of the 'rows=' or 'cols=' attributes when using MSIE. This renders the editor unusable with them. The problem is lines 98/99 of htmlarea.js specifiy the initial dimensions incorrectly.

The following patch fixes it:

Hmmm, curious. I don't see anything harmful in the patch, it's not going to break anything because it only happens when offsetWidth/Height is 0/false/undefined anyway, what's curious is that they should be 0/false/undefined.

Oh well, I guess IE just sucks.
