IE7 Parse Error

Mar 7, 2011 at 5:34 PM

I am successfully consuming an ODATA feed in IE8+, Firefox and Chrome - but in IE7 I am receiving an error

Unable to get value of the property 'parse': object is null or undefined

Does datajs work in IE 7?

thanks

Michael, datajs should work correctly in IE7, however it relies on a JSON parser to be available. Most modern browsers have one natively implemented, but IE7 for example doesn't.

You can fix this by including a script to add JSON support. This is described in the FAQ at http://datajs.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Frequently%20Asked%20Questions#x_x_x_x_x_x_x_x_x_x_x_x_window-parse-null.

Please let me know if you run into any further trouble with this.

Thanks,
Marcelo
