JR49694: THE DROP-DOWN WIDTH OF PROFILE LANGUAGE SELECTOR NOT AUTOMATICALLY RESIZED

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

 

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The width of the profile language selector is not automatically
    resized, which is a problem with Internet Explorer 8. Therefore,
     the total width is increased from its default size to allow for
     IE8 to display all text with nothing cut off.
    

Local fix

  • n/a
    

Problem summary

  • You cannot see the entire name of the language in the IBM
    Process Portal profile language selector when you use Internet
    Explorer 8.
    
    PRODUCTS AFFECTED:
    IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) Advanced
    IBM BPM Standard
    IBM BPM Express
    
    PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION:
    Although other browsers automatically expand the drop-down
    selector to accommodate the longest string, Internet Explorer 8
    does not.  Process Portal sets a static size for the drop-down
    selector, which prevents long strings from being visible.
    
    IS A WORKAROUND AVAILABLE?
    Yes.  Use Internet Explorer 9, Firefox, or Chrome.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM V8.0.1.2 that ensures that the
    drop-down selector is wide enough to accommodate all language
    strings.
