Unique problem with IE8

Hi Chris,

It certainly looks from this end as though it is the infowindow shadow pane that is causing the problem in IE.

Test it out by adding a line to your wagmp_map_1.php. (the number of your instance of your map might be different)

Find the block of code under and including the line similar to:

function wagmp_map_1() {

Place your cursor at the end of the last line in that block, press 'return' to start a new line, and paste in:


In my file it would be like this:

function wagmp_map_1() {
if(GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
if(!document.getElementById('wagmp_map_1')) return false;
var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById('wagmp_map_1'));
wagmp_map_1_obj = new WAMapRef(map);
map.addControl(new GSmallMapControl());
map.addControl(new GMapTypeControl());
var geocoder = new GClientGeocoder();

This doesn't give you a functioning shadow effect, but it might be better to have no shadow until someone posts a good solution. If nothing else it might help the diagnostic process!
