    Default Extjs menus and combobox issues in IE9 RC

    In the new IE9 RC the comboboxes do not open up.
    Also the menus do not show icons supplied in the iconCls attribute.

    ExtJS library isnt working well with IE9 so far. Are you guys coming up with new releases for IE9 ??

    i do have the same problems! The list of my ComboBox gets an inline style with height:0px, so it's not displayed! Tryed it to change in the IE developer tools to height:auto, this would work.

    How can i fix this?

    Agreed. IE9 is causing some major issues. Will there be patches for the 3.3.1 release? Do things look better with 4.0?

    I too need some IE9 support. Menus are rendered incorrectly.

    I had this issue with IE9 until I removed this: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "">

    but it kept happening if the combobox was in a fieldset. Then I realized it wasn't the doctype it was because I had the fieldset defaults: width: '100%', grow: true, allowBlank: true

    I removed those and it fixed it
    Ext-4.2.1 / Windows 7 SP1 / Firefox 24 / Firebug 1.12.2

    Default [SOLUTION] probably

    I had the same problem with a combo box that I transformed via Ext JS

    I only got the error in IE 9 (height = 0).

    After some investigation I found out that I had to extend IE9's standard behavior
    with this function.

    if (typeof Range.prototype.createContextualFragment == "undefined") {
    Range.prototype.createContextualFragment = function (html) {
    var doc = window.document;
    var container = doc.createElement("div");
    container.innerHTML = html;
    var frag = doc.createDocumentFragment(), n;
    while ((n = container.firstChild)) {
    return frag;

    Arrow Same (or Similar) problem here


    One of our users are telling us the same thing. They say they can view the site but all combo boxes are not doing anything when they click on them. The user is using a NEW computer loaded with windows 7/IE 9, but unfortunately checking both 32 bit and 64 bit IE9 in 9 standards, 9 standards compatibility, quirks, and 7 compatibility modes, and even clearing cache eveytime we can not reproduce what they see. We tried using a lap top and a desk top computer and changing any related settings in the advanced internet options but still we were unable to recreate this. I see quite a few people have this problem so it must be something very specific.... Does anyone have an EXACT test case that might reproduce this?

    Have you verified any of the above using Ext 3.4?

    Lightbulb Fixed in 3.3.4

    I had the same odd issue. I thought it was my code, but then checked out the toolbar examples for each version and pinpointed that it was an Ext Bug.

    View the below in IE9
    Ext 3.3.1 Example (w/bug)
    Ext 4.02a Example (bug free)

    I downloaded 3.3.4 and upgraded my 3.3.1 and the issue disappeared.

    Example of the issue is attached in image.

    Talking 3.4 Solved Problem

    Yes, when we updated from 3.3 to 3.4 this problem (along with a bunch of other IE9 specific problems) was cured. Thanks Sencha!
