Calendar in admin interface doesn't display over dropdowns correctly in IE6

Reported by: Esaj Owned by: xian
Component: contrib.admin Version: dev
Severity: Keywords: calendar, internet explorer, dropdowns
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


In IE6, nearby dropdowns will show through the calendar popup for Date/Time/DateTime fields. This is a known bug with IE, and the workaround is to create an <iframe> just underneath the <div>. See for details of the workaround.

I don't want to check this in until we get confirmation from Christian.

I tested this at work at the time under IE6 and it worked great.

Any reason why this hasn't been checked in yet? I'm not sure who Christian is, but this ticket has been open for 11 months now...

What about jQuery bgiframe plugin, when there's implemented jQuery? (see ie6_bgiframe.diff)

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

This ticket would create validation warnings because the iframe is deprecated in XHMTL 1.0 Strict, which admin is. Closing.
