Reproduction instructions:

The JSCalendarWierdFirefoxBehaviour topic holds an example of this issue.

  • The two calendar icons does not provide a pop-up window with the calendar in Firefox, but in IE it works like a charm.
  • If I change the skin by adding ?skin=classic to the example both buttons start to work in Firefox as well.
So it does not work using pattern skin but in with classic skin it works.

BTW: it works fine from within the EditTablePlugin in Firefox using the pattern skin.

We have had similar issues before when we used the date field in EditTablePlugin. It seems not the entire problem has been resolved.

I think this was an operator error. I made the sample in the LitterTray work in FF too: Some XHTML fixes, and aligning it with the JS in edit mode.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 08 May 2007

I have compared the fix to my initial code and apart from a id naming blunder for one of buttons the key is to include the following style definition:

<style type='text/css' media='all'>
  @import url('%PUBURLPATH%/%TWIKIWEB%/JSCalendarContrib/calendar-blue.css');
  .calendar {z-index:2000;}

Then it works like a charm in FF as well!

May I suggest that we update the JSCalendarContrib help text with this explanation of how to use the functionality outside plugins?

-- TWiki:Main.TorbenHoffmann - 08 May 2007

Good point. I changed the summary and state to reflect that.
