Recently we implemented connected app using the CANVAS SDK APIs , we are able to fetch the web page from an external application into SFDC - Visual force inside a Canvas - which technically encapsulates into an iframe i think.

functionality it is all working fine.

however on Chrome, Version 39.0.2171.95 m

the iframe rendering (canvas loading) is not smooth. the iframe gets loaded partially or loads with distortion.

Note - the application we have integrated to - has several JS functions, JSF and other features built in to it. (e.g. the auto-fill of text box) : the Auto-fill appears inside the canvas iframe - however the loading of those predictive auto fill text is not smooth or not clutterfree. i.e. iframe gets loaded partially and gets distorted.

I checked for browser compaitbility issues and other session settings - but in vain.

any suggestions please ?

Thanks a lot TJ

  • ON IE 8 - the above feature works fine (i.e. Jquery, JSF - they all seem to work fine). On IE 9 - JSF / Jquery does not get executed hence we need to run in Compatibility mode. I am trying something similar in Chrome - but not sure if I can run Chrome browser in previous versions compability mode !!

Chrome, Version 39.0.2171.95 m has all sorts of rendering issues when dealing with iframe

You can try various compatibility modes by using an extension such as this.

  • I tried the extension you recommended - but it only acts as spoof to simulate IE , IOS and other browsers. I wanted to try our connected app with different older / latest versions of Chrome. kindly suggest.
