InlineEditSupport + Picklists + Internet Explorer = Broken.

When using InlineEditSupport with picklist fields - there is some odd behaviour occuring -


If the select dropdown happens to fall over another inlineEditSupport control [which almost always will be the case] - once you hover over an item in the dropdown that sits in front of another inlineEditControl - the select dropdown disappears.


In internet explorer (6-8 at least)

1. Have a pageBlock with 1 column and two fields that are dropdowns...

2. Initiate the inline edit and move the mouse over the select options down the page

3. When you end up at an option that sits in front of the second field - the select box disappears....



Ouch is this frustrating.





<apex:page standardController="Account" id="thePage"> 
    <apex:form id="theForm"> 
        <apex:pageBlock id="thePageBlock">
            <apex:outputField value="{!Account.Picklist_A__c}" />
            <apex:outputField value="{!Account.Picklist_A__c}" />
            <apex:outputField value="{!Account.Picklist_A__c}" />

            <apex:inlineEditSupport event="onclick" />


An example above... in internet explorer [6-8] i'm experiencing the picklist disappearing and preventing normal user experience of selecting an option.  It appears related to the click handler propogating from the Select element... back to the parent span that wraps the inline edit control [which triggers inline edit]

This works without issue on chrome - but this is the real world and people use internet explorer...

Were you able to get a solution for this?
