Cisco Security Suite/Rendering issues with charts in IE8

Hi all,

I've noticed that the Cisco Security Suite app displays charts (bar, pie etc) with a black background on IE8 (compatibility mode or not), making the text and axes invisible.

It's fine in chrome and Firefox so I'm sure it's an issue with IE8 not liking something in the CSS, but has anyone found a workaround? I tried commenting out the CSS section for the flash charts, but it doesn't seem to resolve it.

The proper answer is of course "don't use IE8" but I can't help that at the moment. 😞

Thanks!

I understood measures method.
I make the following modifications in application.css of Cisco Security Suite app.

application.css line 847

before


.dashboardCell .FlashChart {
background-color: transparent;
}

after


.dashboardCell .FlashChart {
    background-color: transparent;
    background-color: ##FFF5F5; /*Measures displays charts (bar, pie etc) with a black background on IE8 before*/
}

It is a problem of IE7/8 which occurs when this adds transmission handling of JS to transmission PNG.

JSChart is JavaScript-based. My guess is that there is an problem with the IE 8 browser and Javascript somewhere. You might also try running IE 8 in compatibility mode, if you can't update to another version.

Hrm well I went through the application.css, wiping out sections until it was blank and still no difference, so I'm assuming it's something to do with one of the images in use - maybe something to do with transparency or something... Firefox Inspect says the affected area is "rect" or SplunkModule.JSChart
