Configurable list widget is getting an error "Script Error WidgetsServer.js" when viewed on IE8.Asked by 24Carat on September 02, 2014 at 12:00 AM
I really like the configurable list widget, but the form throws an error on load (screenshot attached)
Error message :

This is a really fundamental widget I want to use everywhere and it's even featured in your tips and tricks for better form creation.
This issue does not happen on modern browsers (IE10,11, chrome or firefox)
A lot of our PCs still run XP and are stuck with IE8.
There is really some compatibility issues with an older browser.
I tested your form in browser stack and was able to see the error. I'll forward a ticket to our 2nd level and see what they can come up with. I cannot guarantee that there will be a fix for this but as soon as there's an update will notify you here.
We've updated the widget to Internet Explorer 8 compatibility -
Kindly check and let us know if you still experience any related issue.
I can confirm that now the widget loads properly !
Thanks for addressing this !
Thank you for letting us know.
We're glad that the widget is working for you now :)
Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
Unfortunately the issue came back lately.
It worked fine for a while, but now none of my IE8 based clients can use my form.
I do apologize for the issue that you are currently experiencing with the configurable list widget not working correctly within IE8,
I was not able to recreate the issue when viewing your form from an IE8 browser.
Can you provide us with more information regarding the issue you are currently experiencing?
We await your response to better assist you.
Thanks for quick response.
The issue is happening on 12 (at least) pcs running IE8.
The script error pops up as shown in the OP
Hope this helps
I see that you've modified your form and it's not showing the configurable list anymore.
So, I made a test using a newly created form and was also unable to reproduce the issue.
I see that you mentioned that this happened with 12 computers, are those computers connected to the same network? If so, do you have a different computer to test with? Have you told your clients to clear the browser's cache?
OK, I'll do some more testing.
I have re-created the form to workaround the issue by recognising the user agent with the agent widget and displaying a different form accordingly
Do let us know how the tests go and I would like to mention one more thing that makes IE even more unusable than it already is and that is its - Compatibility mode.
Please make sure that the same is not turned on or it will cause issues at times, not only on jotforms, but on many other websites as well.
- There should be no checkmark next to it - if it is as above (with checkmark), it is turned on.
