  • Haven't been able to view the Radar for over 2 weeks now

    Initially thought it was a minor bug but it hasn't been fixed as of yet.

    Constantly getting a javascript error - Below
    Webpage error details

    User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/4.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; InfoPath.3; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E)
    Timestamp: Sat, 13 Nov 2010 09:50:30 UTC


    Message: Object expected
    Line: 71
    Char: 1
    Code: 0
    URI: http://www.flightradar24.com/

    The error is with this line

    <body onload="init();" onunload="GUnload();" class="sidebar-right">


    Can someone have a look at it please, kind of annoying not being able to run something.

    If the sidebar doesn't load then the main page wont load - and that's the root cause of this fault.


    Thanks

    My guess is you are more than likely using Windows 7 and 32 bit IE8 explorer.

    If you read this thread first, you will see your problem is shown in this thread.
    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...f-8d57045bc9ec

    Then if you read this thread you will see that this a fairly common problem and its not
    easy to fix. There is a fix in this thread, but to me it looks like a lot of work.
    You could could copy and paste the fix, it all depends on how much experience you have with software.
    If it was me i would try a different browser (Opera works well with FR24)

    BE CAREFUL NOT TO MESS UP YOUR P.C.!!

      This is a new fault - I've been using Win 7 with IE8 ever since it came out and been using FR24 since May, all without a problem. But, as I said, 2 weeks ago, it stopped working and its got to do with the sidebar.

      We really shouldn't have to mess with our setups. If the js contains an error protocol (easily done) for this error then it would fix things. Its a bit much to ask people to mess with their setups for badly functioning error catchers. And like I said, its a NEW fault. Whatever changed has introduced a bug.

          Hi Angelus
          You will have to use a different Browser as this issue only affects IE, its a very tricky to sort out Java problem which is link to Google Maps.

          Here's a post from development website: http://www.devcomments.com/Adding-on...ly-at23689.htm

          This is the post;
          "I'm working with google maps.

          Normally, you kick off the Gmap code with an onload call in the
          <body>
          tag. For example: <body onload="init;">

          When using MooTools, this doesn't work, you have to place:

          // Get the ball rolling...
          window.onload = init;

          inside the 'domready' wrapper. Otherwise, init does not get executed.

          The problem lies with (for some strange reason) with IE. Sometimes the
          map code will not *complete* the map load if the map starts loading
          before the page itself has finished loading.

          Is there a way to detect when the page has finished loading so I can
          at that point kick off the map loading function within the 'domready'
          wrapper?

          This issue is exclusively with IE. Googleing "google map not loading
          in ie" brings up a bit of discussion but noting that addresses Gmaps
          and MooTools."
          __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ____
          So changing your browser is by far the easiest option.
          The fact that it worked 2 weeks ago means something on your PC has changed.

          Hope this gets you up and running.

              Scanhorse - Like I previously said. I shouldn't have to change MY system for poorly written code or a lazy programmer who cant or wont fix the problem which has been identified.

              speedbird1960 - you, like me have identified the problem. Now the programmers need to fix it. ((And your logic is flawed. Just because its broken now, does not mean its my system (which btw, has not been changed in the slightest - no updates nor additions or removals)). It's plainly simple - the code is trying to load an object that is not there - either REMOVE the offending code or add the object - whichever one makes it work will fix the problem!!!

              There are other sites which use google maps and they work perfectly well in IE8 (using the same sort of code).

                Maybe the code is not perfect, but who ever you ask who knows anything about web programing will tell you that IE sucks when it comes to handling javascripts.
                So we have NOT tried to adapt or optimized the code for IE. We will not invest days of work to get it almost working on a crappy browser when there are other free and better alternatives.
                At least we are clearly informing that this page is not working with IE and we are recommending other alternatives. But it's up to you to choose your browser.

                  Just to keep everybody quiet, I loaded Google Chrome and Opera just to see the difference.

                  And low and behold - It doesn't work there either.

                  SO there is a FAULT.

                    Then I think you should investigate the settings in your browser .....

                      Hi Angelus,

                      I have found out from searching the net, this might sound strange but if you have got SKYPE disable it and restart your browser.
                      Skype has been found to interfere with Google Maps.

                      Also to rule out Geo location issue's which Country do you live in.
