Webstation static graphics viewer doesn't work in Chrome, FireFox or smart phones

Issue

Webstation static graphic viewer no longer works in Chrome, FireFox or on smart phones. The "Loading..." image never goes away.

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

Webstation

Cause

The file "xmlHttpImageLoader.js" located in "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\TACVistaWeb519\Modules\Graphics\ImageLoader" (519 being the version of TAC Vista installed) uses the name "status" for a variable in the script. This variable name is a reserved word.

The name is actually not a reserved JavaScript word, but a reserved Windows word: http://www.w3schools.com/js/js_reserved.asp

Resolution

As only Internet Explorer is supported, this is not going to be fixed. There is however a workaround that will enable viewing graphics in static mode.

1. Rename the file C:\inetpub\wwwroot\TACVistaWeb519\Modules\Graphics\ImageLoader\xmlHttpImageLoader.js

2. Paste this corrected file to the same location
