AJAX problem on IE7

16 New Member

I'm having problem implementing AJAX on IE7. In other browser it works totally fine. In IE7, if i enable the Enable Native XMLHTTP support, everything just went wrong.

Here is the XMLHTTP request code : (thanks to www.masykur.web.id)

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  http_request = false ;
  2.         if (window.XMLHttpRequest) { 
  3.             http_request = new XMLHttpRequest();
  4.             if (http_request.overrideMimeType) {
  5.                 http_request.overrideMimeType('text/xml');
  7.             }
  8.         } else if (window.ActiveXObject) { // IE
  9.             var aVersions = [ "MSXML2.XMLHttp.6.0", "MSXML2.XMLHttp.5.0", "MSXML2.XMLHttp.4.0", "MSXML2.XMLHttp.3.0", "Microsoft.XMLHTTP" ];
  10.             for (var i = 0; i < aVersions.length; i++) {
  11.                 try { http_request = new ActiveXObject(aVersions[i]);
  12.                     break;
  13.                 }
  14.                 catch (e)
  15.                 {
  16.                 // Do nothing 
  17.                 } 
  18.             }
  19.         }

But if i disable the Enable Native XMLHTTP support, it just run smoothly.
I've read from several forums that this problem is quite common, but i just can't find out the work-around.

How do i overcome this problem?
Since out there i can't tell the IE7 user to 'disable their XMLHTTP native'.
Btw, i guess in IE6 there's no problem at all.

some ways I would try to solve this:
- try-catch on both objects
- try the ActiveXObject first

this one is working fine for me:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.     try {
  2.         request = new XMLHttpRequest();
  3.     }
  4.     catch (e){
  5.         try {
  6.             request = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP"); // IE 5
  7.         } catch (e) {
  8.             try {
  9.                 request = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP"); // IE 6
  10.             } catch (e) {
  11.                 alert("...your error message here...");
  12.                 return false;
  13.             }
  14.         }
  15.     }
must proceed, will check later

I have run into a situation that if a page/tab that uses the Ajax toolkit (using .net version 3.5) is closed before the Ajax enable controls complete loading, then IE locks up. Does it in both IE7 and IE8. There is no issue when the controls are allowed to complete loading. Can you please tell me the best practice that handles this? Thanks.
