[mapguide-users] Tooltip Issues in Internet Explorer

Yes, the image are on that server and are rendered from the full-size images
on-the-fly to a .NET thumbnail image.  This image is created by an ASP.NET
page that the tooltip references while passing the parcel ID.  I use the
exact same page calls in Google Maps and Google Earth and it works
incredibly well.  I am actually amazed at how fast .NET is at this
on-the-fly image processing.  You can see the Google Earth implementation
here:  <http://mapguide.spatialgis.com/mapguide/GoogleEarthDemo/>
http://mapguide.spatialgis.com/mapguide/GoogleEarthDemo/.  I don't have all
of the images for the County loaded (40 GB worth) on to the server yet, but
will by Monday.  For now, open this placemark file after opening the above
link in Google Earth.
Regarding your other question, no, I have not seen the browser freeze up
when accessing this application.  It could be that you happened to be
browsing when the MapGuide service was restarted and you lost your session.
I restart it via a scheduled task every two hours due to stability issues
discussed in the past.  It's not pretty, but it makes sure that the server
is usually running when people try to access it.

This goes back to a post that I had earlier.   You are referencing an image
on a server somewhere, correct?  I have this working great too, but in IE
the tool tip acts erratically.  


I have images that I stream from the database or other locations.   I wish I
could take this a bit further and place the streamed data into the tool tip.
Hopefully, in upcoming releases this will be supported and the performance
will be OK.


I have a Google map that works perfectly for streaming images in the tool
tip information for the markers.   It utilizes XSL to format tool tip

I have custom tooltips built in a map and as part of that tooltip, an
external page is called that generates an image.  This works extremely well
in Firefox as well as the Studio preview window.  However, in Internet
Explorer I get very odd, inconsistent results.  These tooltips sometimes
work correctly, but most of the time, as you hover over a parcel, it makes
repeated calls to the server and never "holds still".  This looks an issue
with AJAX handling between the two browsers.

Here is a link to try first in Firefox and then in IE:

Any help on this from Autodesk would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
