Scroll Bars Still Hide Code RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know this has been brought up many times, but I want to report that I have experienced this problem consistently since September 20. I've refreshed and restarted several times since. The issue was last discussed in this thread:

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/reportabug/thread/8772ebd3-f484-43d5-bf9f-32c9c501c70e

    Robert Aldwinckle suggested I do a Network Capture, and then compare when the problem is no longer seen. Well, I have not been able to compare. Also, the capture is large and seems (to me) to not reflect any cache server, so I don't think I will be able to identify a bad server.

    Here is a recent thread in a forum I moderate. Almost all of the replies include code I cannot read at all (without copying and pasting each code block into a text file, or turning off formating):

    A few other people have reported the same problem. I think there must be bug somewhere. To review, not everyone experiences this problem at the same time. The problem always comes and goes. I suspect some have the problem, but don't realize it because only the last line of code is hidden. I'm using IE 9 on Windows 7.

    So, going by our last discussion, do you see  prettyprinted  in the source or just  prettyprint?

    Unfortunately, ATM I am on IE10 again, so having me saying again that I can see  prettyprinted  for each insertion (currently 7) may not be as significant as if I was back on IE9.   I'll try to remember to compare with it too.   FWIW I just pressed F12 while viewing that page, pressed Ctrl-e, typed  prettyprinted, pressed Enter  and counted the number of instances that could be found until it wrapped back to the first one.

    In fact, (new idea), if you are not seeing  <pre class="prettyprint prettyprinted">  perhaps it would be a worthwhile experiment to change one to that and see if you then can see the example more normally?  To do that just get into the source Editor, e.g. press Alt-E, find the first instance of  class="prettyprint"  and change it.   Then toggle out of the Editor, e.g. press Alt-E again and (JIC) click Refresh or press F5 (still in the DT).   FWIW I just did the reverse of that, removing prettyprinted, but don't see any change.  YMMV.

  • Well you said here (http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/eu/reportabug/thread/c08f3e78-02ab-4e11-b9ee-4f33ec934f7f) it's a known issue, but that was so long ago. I can resubmit the bug request. I can't repro, but I found three others who ran into the bug too.

    Thanks!

  • You probably used IE9 Compatibility Mode view the thread with the error. You may simply click the yellow highlighted as below to change your IE to be the none-compatibility mode. then you will find out the correct code on the forum.

    Detailed introduction is as below: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/How-to-use-Compatibility-View-in-Internet-Explorer-9

  • Amazing. After all this time, that is the solution. However, it seems (to me) that I need to use Compatibility Mode to see all of the code. When the icon is colored (not turned on?), the scroll bar hides the code. When the icon is not colored, the scroll bar does not hide the code. Also, the mode seems to not just apply to a specific page, but to all pages (probably at the site).

    I suspect that in the past I clicked this icon by mistake without knowing, as it is near the refresh button.

    I need to test more, but this may also fix another problem I have, where code I insert using the "Insert HTML" feature has my style stripped out if I specify a border. Lately I have had to not specify a border, but I just tested and was able to specify a border without having my style stripped out. This may solve all my problems. Thanks.
