Unable to Save or Cancel in IE


A really weird error has occured in EPiServer CMS 6 with Composer 4. In Composer Edit on Page the Save and view, Save and publish and Cancel does not work i IE (7/8). When pressing the buttons nothing happens. It all works in Firefox, Chrome etc.

It also works on another server environment so it´s not code-related, it seems that it would be settings related (IIS or EPiServer) but what can affect this in just IE?

Hi Tobias,

Are you using the Page.MaintainScrollPositionOnPostBack property in your code? That has caused the Composer 4 toolbar to fail in IE although it worked perfectly fine in Firefox.

Simply remove that call from your page/function and the buttons should work again in IE.

Let me know how it goes,

Yes! Thank you! Is this documented somewhere because this took half the day to try to fix it and it would seem that the error would occur quite often since using MaintainScrollpositionOnPostback is a standard functionality to use.

I don't think it is documented anywhere, it was a "trial and error" procedure for me to figure this out.

Glad I could help.
