Issue with Multiselect Cascade Dropdowns SharePoint 2013 IE8

Aug 13, 2013 at 6:19 PM
I am having an issue with SPServices CascadeDropdowns where the parent column is multiselect and the child column is multiselect. This is for SharePoint 2013.

I was able to get this to work fine in IE 10. Unfortunately a tester is using IE8 and I was able to confirm that there are issues occurring when using IE8. I confirmed this by opening my IE Developer tools and setting the Document Mode to "IE8 standards". The Browser Mode setting does not seem to make a difference and can be IE10, IE9 or IE8.

What happens is weird to explain, but basically there appears to be a filtering "lag". When I first select a value from the parent multiselect, no filtering occurs in the child multiselect. The next time I select a value from the parent multiselect, the child multiselect is filtered based on the value I selected the first time. This "lag" continues as I make changes to the parent multiselect values. The 3rd change causes the child multiselect to be filtered based on my 2nd change, 4th change filters based on 3rd chage, etc.

Again this only seems to occur if I am using Document Mode "IE8 standards".

I have tried these versions with similar results:
SPServices.2013.01 (made the 1 line change to line: 1439 realted to the button being changed to input)

Any errors on the console? Any javascript exceptions?
Also, just curious - if you were running this on SP2010, did it work there?

I'm thinking this may be an IE change() event delay on the select boxes...

I did not see any javascript exceptions or errors. Have not tried it in SP2010.

I'll try to take a look at the specifics when I get a chance. Let me know if you learn any more along the way.
