SYMPTOMS

After you click the Back button in Internet Explorer, select boxes on a Web page may not be displayed or refreshed correctly.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, you can use this method on the Web server.

To handle the onload event of the page, call a different function named adjust_stage1. This function uses setTimeout to delay the call to the adjust_stage function just long enough for the rendering of the page to occur.

The code modifications include the following sample code.

Body tag:

<BODY bgColor=#ffffff onload="if (isIE()) adjust_stage1();">


Added to the Script tag:

function adjust_stage1()
{
window.setTimeout("adjust_stage()", 500);
}


You also need to set the width by using a Style tag:

<select name="Field_115" multiple size=3 style="width:200px;">


STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
