    Greetings:

    I am using the latest Rad Controls for ASP.Net for AJAX (2008.2 1001).

    I have a radtabstrip that on the server side makes visible a DIV based upon which one of 3 tab enties is pressed. 

    Using an RadAjaxManagerProxy (main manager is in master page), I add an AjaxSettings for the tabstrip to update the tabstrip itself plus all three of the potential DIVs that may be made visible.

    Works great in IE.

    In Netscape 7.2 it is as if the Ajax times out before the server can take action.  The results are that the DIVs remain the same even though the server has changed their visual behavior.

    If I step through the code in debug mode, it somehow works fine. (timing I guess).  And it always works fine in IE.

    If I remove the Ajaxification of the tabstrip it works fine in Netscape although the whole page refreshes.

    I can find no references to anything on your site regarding Netscape and timing.

    Any ideas why Netscape would have an Ajax timing problem ?
    Any way I can disable Ajaxification of the tabstrip if the client is Netscape ?

    All ideas welcome and appreciated.

    The five most common words in a web developer's vocabulary are ..."It-Doesn't-Work-In-Netscape" <g>.

    Thanks,

    Robb

    Hi RobbMurdock,

    This version of Netscape is not supported by RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX controls. Please refer to our Browser Support page for details on the matter.

    On aside note, please note that Netscape branded software development has ended. More info here.

    Thanks,

    What about the second questions.

    Is there a way to disable the ajaxification for a particular browser programatically ?

    Please advise.

    Thanks,

    Robb

    Hi Robb,

    You can disable ajax by using the set_enableAJAX method of the RadAjaxManager control, i.e.

    <script type="text/javascript">  
    function pageLoad()  
    {  
        var ajaxm = $find('<%= RadAjaxManager1.ClientID %>');  
        ajaxm.set_enableAJAX(false);  
    }  
    </script>
