Combobox: Incorrect button size in IE7

Reported by: johntrepreneur Owned by: johntrepreneur
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.9.0

Description

The combobox button is smaller than the adjacent autocomplete field in IE7. It can be seen and repro'd on the jquery ui demo (version 1.8.23) page at:

http://jqueryui.com/demos/autocomplete/#combobox

Use the IE compatibility mode button (or menu item: "Tools-->Compatibility View") to repro the bug in IE at the link above.

I'm confused by your statement. IE7 doesn't have a compatibility view, that feature wasn't added until IE8. Even using IE8 with compatibility view turned on I don't see any issues. The only way I can get the button to look incorrect is to switch to quirks mode.

I was assuming the person fixing it would have a later version of IE installed (presumably IE9) and just use the compatibility view to repro this. I'm using IE9 with compatibility view to see it. In IE9, you can also go into "Tools-->F12 Developer Tools" and hit the "Browser Mode" button and then click the "Internet Explorer 7" option to repro. I can also attach a picture if that helps.

As I said before I cannot reproduce this without going in to quirks mode.

So, I did just notice that I'm using the 64bit version of IE9 (in compatibility mode) which is where I see it. When I use the 32bit version of IE9 (in compatibility mode), the but goes away. Unfortunetly, the sites that that render IE webpages that I checked are using the 32bit versions and I couldn't find one that did IE 64bit, so other than posting a pic from my machine, I guess you won't be able to repro (assuming you don't have IE9 64bit). Oh well. Go ahead and close it if you can't repro. I don't care.

This seems like a bit of an edge case and it's just a demo, so I don't think we'll spend any time on this. Patches welcome.

Okay, so it turns out it had nothing to do with IE 64bit version. That was just an anomoly that occurred while attempting to repro. There is also nothing wrong with the current combobox demo page (1.8.23). Turns out, the issue was with a previous version of jquery ui (jquery-ui-1.8.19 to be specific) where it was happening as I replaced the jquery references out for the older 1.8.19 version.
