Hi Cindy,

Thanks for the test results. I'm glad you like the refactoring. Some comments below...

I get this same error here, too:


I think that probably means it's a bug in the Uploader itself, rather than our Image Gallery.

> 2. in IE 8, since the initial default of text field "Allowed File MIME Types" is "image/gif,image/jpeg,image/png,image/tiff", when clicking "browse files", the popup window of "select file" tries to match on files with types "image/gif,image/jpeg,image/png,image/tiff" which ends up an empty file list.

I can't reproduce this in my IE6 or IE8 VMs. Are you using the latest version of Infusion from the project repo? 

I recently merged in Mike's branch, which standardizes the queueSettings.fileTypes option as an array of MIME types across both HTML5 and Flash version. The Flash strategy internally converts this into the old semicolon-delimited list of extensions.

> 3. in IE 8, adjust any setting, click anywhere on the page to trigger the second uploader re-instantiation, goes well. Adjust any setting again, click anywhere on the page to trigger the third re-instantiation, hit the error "object doesn't support this property or method" at fluid.js line 62, char 13. The same error can be re-produced by adjusting "file size limit" or "file queue limit" to trigger the second re-instantiation.

Yes, I see that error. I'll see what I can do to fix it.

> 4. in IE 7, same infinite loop issue persists after a few around of setting adjustments that trigger error 3.

I don't have a copy of IE7 to test with here, but I'll take a look tomorrow. Sounds like another failure of SWFUpload, maybe?

Thanks again for trying it out,
