#2356 closed Bug (fixed)

IE7 Access Denied - Local Filesystem

Reported by: Samuel Smith Owned by: Martin Kou
Priority: Normal Milestone: FCKeditor 2.6.3
Component: General Version: FCKeditor 2.6.2
Keywords: Confirmed IE7 Review+ Cc:


Problem: Opening any of the html sample pages of FCKEditor from the filesystem in IE7 gives an "Access Denied" error coming from file fckeditor\editor\js\fckeditorcode_ie.js on line 62 with the code: ""GET",A,false);".

This has been resolved by me in the post:

Basically the native IE7 XmlHttpRequest Object appears to not allow requests on the filesystem. Here is the offending code causing the issues: (file fckeditor\editor\_source\internals\fcktools_ie.js)

FCKTools.CreateXmlObject = function( object ) {

var aObjs ;

switch ( object ) {

case 'XmlHttp' :

Try the native XMLHttpRequest introduced with IE7. try { return new XMLHttpRequest() ; } catch (e) {} bad for use on local filesystem

aObjs = [ 'MSXML2.XmlHttp', 'Microsoft.XmlHttp' ] ; use this instead for local filesystem break ;

case 'DOMDocument' :

aObjs = [ 'MSXML2.DOMDocument', 'Microsoft.XmlDom' ] ; break ;


for ( var i = 0 ; i < 2 ; i++ ) {

try { return new ActiveXObject( aObjs[i] ) ; } catch (e) {}


if ( FCKLang.NoActiveX ) {

alert( FCKLang.NoActiveX ) ; FCKLang.NoActiveX = null ;

} return null ;

Sorry for not replying sooner, but this patch is the same thing that I did to fix the problem. The patch works perfectly.
