window.location not working in IE 6

October 21, 2010 Leave a comment

For some unknown reason, IE 6 Java-script engine doesn’t allow me to a new URL by simply changing the window.location or window.location.href properties.

The very same thing is working fine in IE 7/8, Chrome and Fire-fox. But IE 6 is doing nothing on a call like window.location.href = url; No error is returned and location of page remains the same.

On searching for this issue, i came to following solution.

This problem is resolved by replacing the direct java-script to a custom function call like:

function SetWindowLocation(url)
{
    setTimeout(function()
     {
         window.location = url;
     }, 0);
}

Calling this function will change the location in all browsers including the funny IE 6.

The Award Night

October 9, 2010 Leave a comment

On October 8, 2010 we participated in P@SHA ICT Awards 2010.

It was a very unique experience for our team as our product Ultrabot (Learning Simplified) by Knowledge Platform was sent as nominee of awards for the first time. Ultrabot was contesting for the award in the e-Learning category.

Once we saw our product in theĀ Finalists List, our excitement was doubled and we kept our fingers crossed for our hopes to be a winner. And finally our hard work, dedication and team work got reward and an award. Ultrabot was declared the winner in e-Learning category.

It was a moment of joy for the whole KP team but I am sure, this was just the right beginning, there will more awards to come for our very own Ultrabot in future.

Good luck Ultrabot. Good luck KP.
