I have been trying to get the uploader to come up in Internet Explorer on the Mac. The page loads but the uploader box is not there. I have gone through the iuembed.js file and narrowed it down to the writeHtml function. I inserted some alerts throughout the js file and it returned everyone of them but it is simply not running writeHtml();

I am at my wit's end. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Hello,

Image Uploader for Java doesn’t work on Internet Explorer for Mac.

Image Uploader requires Java 1.4, at that time as IE 5 on Mac supports Java 1.3 only. You can check the list of all supported browsers in our Image Uploader FAQ.

I had to rewrite the iuembed file to only show the standard file upload method for IE on the Mac. Also for Firefox on the Mac.

Hello,

Firefox must be working on Mac. Read Image Uploader FAQ for more information.

It is good solution. You can put degradation HTML output in following place of code:

Code:
...
		else
		{
			this.controlType="None";		
			document.writeln("Your browser is not supported.");
		}
...

The problem we had was that about half the time, Firefox would not display the java interface on the Mac. We found that the people would have to download the updated java files and put them in the plug-ins folder in their Library. This was way too complicated.

Secondly, we did not want people to see any message saying that their browser is not compatible and that's all there is to it. So, I modified so that the standard file browse button option showed up on Mac for IE and Firefox. It provided a link to say that they can attempt to use the IU if they want to but success is not guaranteed.

This worked ok for us. Most users will be windows anyway, so we aren't too worried about it.

Thanks for an awesome application!

Andrew

Your users will have to install special plug-ins to run any other Java applet any way.
