For those running Mango: IE bug, need people to confirm
I've been doing some development lately (mobile apps for work and the like), and I've notice something isn't adding up on my Mango'd Focus. From what it looks like, Microsoft didn't properly implement the file upload feature in IE9 Mobile.
So for those of you with Mango running devices, try the following:
-Navigate to http://windowsphonehacker.com/uploadtest.html
(Short link: http://bit.ly/pFoFSM
) or any other site with a file upload form.
-Try to add a file to the form. In my experience, pressing Browse just highlights the whole browse box briefly and then stops, and pressing the text box to the left brings up the keyboard in a read-only text input.
Here's the source of the page, for those curious:
<form action='uploadtest.html' method='POST' enctype='multipart/form-data'>
<input type='file' name='testfile'><br>
<input type='submit' value='Submit'><br>
From what I can tell, Microsoft omitted implementing the file upload box. If this was an early build of Mango, I would be less concerned, but I'm starting to think that this bug may very well make it into the Mango RTM. If it does, this is some seriously bad news, especially for me as I would have to not support WP7 in my mobile site, which would just be embarrassing.
Can anyone confirm/add pointers?
