Anchor Tag problems in IE

Post by Q2hyaXMgTm » Fri, 16 Dec 2005 20:35:02

We have a dynamic web application that, on some actions will refreshes the
screen, with a specified anchor to take the user back to somewhere close to
where they were previously.

We specify our anchors using the standard HTML syntax (<a
name="anchor1">Text</a>) and we specify the URL when the screen refreshes to
include the anchor name, e.g. /my-screen#anchor1

However Internet Explorer has a fault that when it refreshes the screen, it
first scrolls the page to the top, then after a delay of a couple of seconds
the page is then scrolled down to the anchor position.

Our customers are finding this very annoying and we are looking for a
solution. is there any work around for this fault in Internet Explorer? We
are using IE 6 and above.

1. Dynamic anchor tag problem "@ OR @" causing function to fail in IE

2. IE IFrame Anchor Tag

As I recall from my own experiences, the problem that you're referring to is
caused by using the scrollIntoView method. My workaround is to use the
iframe's window.scroll method instead.
