$0.00 Price is sometimes covered by Add button
Author Randy on 10-20-2000 at 22:35 (EST)
I'm having the same problems as Henry is in the previous post using IE5 and uShop V3.0

I'm using uShopInput5.class and in the fields I have [Colour - Size - Quantity - Price - Add button]

The ADD button alot of times covers up most the $0.00 price. I'm running the applet in a popup window after a pic is clicked on. If you close the popup and reopen it, it is normal again. No problems with this in Netscape, just IE5. I tried it without the Popup windows and still had the same problem.

Any know problems?

I e-mailed a Form earlier .... didn't see this topic in this Forum until now.

That uShopInput5 applet (uShop 3.0) should not be having the same problem as that custom-made uShop 2.0 applet described at:

But just to double-check, I created a test page and put 5 uShopInput5 applets on it and tried it out with IE... And they all seemed to work with no problems.

If you continue to see the problem, then give me the URL where you are testing it out and I will take a look at it.

Hi Bill ....thanks for responding

I just went through the whole site, and of about 200 items, it only happened twice this time. I did notice that internally to my computer as the page and applet loads faster, it does it more often, but on the internet as things load slower, it is less frequent (but does still happen)

Here is a pic you can see at

The actual site itself can be viewed at

It is still under construction .... but for the most part, all the applets are in place

I spent some time looking at your site and trying to duplicate the problem with IE (Particularly on the Microlamb Jacket page that you sent the image of).... but was not able to duplicate the problem.

I did take a brief look at your source anyway... and it appears that you do have all of the "popup" Javascript functions set to have a large enough width for the pop-up window (a width large than the applet's width).... so that should be ok.

Since you noted that it seems to occur more when loading the HTML from your local computer.... I'll try doing some tests myself from my local computer and then possibly suggest something if I duplicate the problem.

Hi there,
I'm having the same problems. Can you please look at the 3 applets on this page and determine what I'm doing wrong?

It comes and goes...The price is covered up by the ADD button, but after a refresh, it shifts into position correctly. When I revisit the page later, it is covered up again!

Please let me know what I can do. This is Applet 17 on IE 5.0

That sounds like an IE problem that we added a work-around for in the recently released 3.4 version of uShop:

So I would suggest downloading that latest version and then replace ALL of your current ".class" files with the updated ones. You should NOT have to change any of your HTML.

I have had this happen to me also. I use dreamweaver to design all of my web site. This give me the ability to make fast changes and view them live and i have found that this is caused be the centering of the applet. If I use a DIV tag rather than a center tag, this doesnt happen.

Weird, but it worked for me

Sometimes ie 5.5 show app 17 wrong by covering some of the prices. not the same ones every time.
and go to Product listings - A
A few of the products prices are covered up most of the time. it happens to other products sometimes to. It works perfect every time in IE5.

I've tested this on a couple of other computers and the same thing happens.

I took a look at your site and noticed that your applets have WIDTHs of "580"...yet they are located in tables with WIDTHs of only "400" and table cells with WIDTHs of only "300". The tables/table cells in which the applets are located should be GREATER than the applet WIDTHs.

                                                                                                Author Chris Guth on 04-25-2001 at 10:24 (EST)
I changed the table widths after posting the first message and got no change same problem.
You must have looked at it before I changed it,
it does it randomly every time the page is displayed or refreshed.

When I view your antibiotics page:

... I still see the table widths and cell widths less than the applet widths. So double-check that.

Please advise on section A only please, I have not touched any other page until "A" is solved.
I just tried Netscape 4.51 English version and am having worse problems. the page loads and all the applets pop up for a sec then a few disapear.

Is the problem I have to many applets?
This site goes live in a month, please help.

I took a look at your "A" listings at:

...and noticed that you do not set the actual WIDTH of the table cells that have the applets in them. Try specifying a WIDTH for each table cell that has an applet in it. (And of course, make sure the table widths and the table cell widths are greater than the widths of the applets).

                                                                                                                                Author stefbishop on 07-29-2001 at 10:42 (EST)
I wonder what happened as I have had the same problems as Chris Guth reported some months ago and on his site it appears that use of ushopinput17 has been abandoned! I've tried many things but ended up with the width of my applets being greater than the table cells in which they are placed and suffering exactly the symptoms Chris was reporting.
On correcting this situation I find that my applet gets truncated at both left and right edges by varying amounts and only in Netscape, which is probably why I increased its width in the first place (which seemed to work apart from the 'intermittent' problems mentioned)

I am using the UK English download and wondered if there is a difference in the class files and if so whether the ones I'm using benefitted from the fix mentioned for 3.4 that relates to these problems.

(My working test set up is on After skipping intro page select 'Singles' in the left frame)

How can I check the version of a Ushop class file?
How can I predict what applet width is required such that all the info will fit in?

Hope there is a way out, as our old V2 site cant handle the post & packaging the way we need it!
