Inconsistant Browser linking

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by =?Utf-8?B?amNyaXY=?=, Sep 22, 2004.

  1. Hi,
    We have a large web app with a tree menu. All works fine when I run this
    with IE 6 as the client. However, when I run with Mozilla FireFox,
    Netscape, etc I get errors trying to navigate from one webform to the next.

    When a client goes to the website the default.htm page sends them to a Login
    form in a LoginForms folder. Once the login is verified we links to a
    menu.htm which has 3 frames. A top frame with a heading, a left fram with a
    ..aspx form with the tree menu and a right frame with another .aspx forms that
    is a greeting, etc form.
    The login form and the menu forms and all in the LoginForms folder

    the app folder tree is like the following
    wwwroot/MyWebForms/LoginForms
    wwwroot/MyWebForms/Finance/FmForms/forms.aspx
    wwwroot/MyWebForms/Finance/ReportForms/moreforms.aspx

    Each final leaf in the tree has a link with a relative path some thing like
    ...\Finance\FmForms\GlStatments1.aspx

    Here is the code-behind that emits the html for one of the menu leafs.

    sPgm = "..\Finance\FmForms\GlStatements1.aspx
    sName = "Ledger Statements"
    App = "General Ledger"
    Sec = "FmForms"

    Response.Write("<TABLE BORDER=0><TR><TD WIDTH=10></TD><TD> <A href=" &
    Chr(34) & sPgm & "?App=" & App & "&Sec=" & Sec & Chr(34) & "target=" &
    Chr(34) & "_top" & Chr(34) & "><IMG SRC=" & Chr(34) & "leaf.gif" & Chr(34) &
    "> " & sName & "</A><DIV></DIV></TD></TR></TABLE>")


    Internet Explorer 6 shows the following when I hover over the href

    http://www.myServer.com/MyWebForms/Finance/FmForms/GlStatements1.aspx


    Mozilla FireFox, Netscape, etc (latest versions) show the following

    http://www.myServer.com/MyWebForms/LoginForms/..\Finance\FmForms\GlStatements1.aspx

    Why is there a difference? Also, this initial link seems to work but when I
    do a Response.Redirect("GlStatements2.aspx") to go to a second web form in
    the same folder, it works in IE but gets an error in Netscape and the path
    displayed in the error shoes the 'LoginForms' stuck in the path between
    MyWebForms and Finance. I hope there is something I can to to remedy this as
    some of our customers are insisting on using a non - IE browser.

    Thanks,

    --
    John
