    Browser compatibility with progress bar on Internet Explorer

    Asked by Jeffrey on March 18, 2011 at 01:33 PM

    Does anyone know what browsers are compatable with the progress bar on the file uploads. It looks great on Chrome on my Mac, but we don't see anything on Internet Explorer. This is kind of a big issue for us. What are the browser compatabilies/Requirments and will they be expanded?

    It has been tested on all browsers. Can you let us know these:

    1. Which version of Internet Explorer were you using?

    2. Exactly what is the URL of the page that has this problem?

    The file uploads do work, it's just that you don't get the progress status. I do see a blue cancel button until the upload is complete, but we're not sure all customers would understand the files are being uploaded in the background.

    I understand your concern about customers not being able to tell if the files are being uploaded or not. However, you do not need to worry about getting submissions without uploaded files, as the user will get a warning that a file is still being uploaded whenever he attempts to submit the form, navigate to another page, or close the browser window.


    As you can see from this screenshot, a "loading" image appears right after the filename. I am using IE8 so this problem is already fixed.
