This confirmation box works as intended (Hitting Ok performs the action to filter rows/move away from page, Choosing Cancel does not perform the action) whenever users are attempting to change pages or paginate through the results and also works as intended in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome whenever users change their selection in a drop down and data has been changed in the tabular form. However, in IE8, when a user changes their selection in a select list the confirmation box comes up with the values Ok, Cancel and they both have the same effect of setting the value of the page item to the new selection and filtering our tabular form. The desired result is to have the cancel button not set the value of the page item and therefore filter the rows in the tabular form, the way that it works in Firefox and Chrome. Having the users use a browser other than IE8 is not an option as we only officially support IE.
That plugin, Skillbuilders Save Before Exit, is being called on an event "onbeforeUnload". Is there any event before setting the value in IE that it could be called? Is there anyway to not set the value when hitting cancel? I want to post this application to apex.oracle.com but will need to get approval before doing so, but please, offer any suggestions you can while I get approval.
