Hi!

Actually, I have an issue concerning the use of my shortlist webapp with different browsers.

I have created a shortlist webapp from an existing webmap and set the type to <Use the point data 'as is' >, so let's call it a 'live-link' to the source table data. I followed all instructions with the excel template to provide the right structure for the shortlist webapp.

Everything works fine when I use google chrome browser. But when I change the browser to firefox or internet explorer the connection to the data layer cannot be established.

So when I click the 'health check' button in my story section with google chrome, all is fine. But after doing the same thing in firefox or internet explorer, I get the message that the access to the data layer cannot be established. And this leads to a blank webapp in these browsers.

Any idea to get this solved?

Thank you very much.

Kind regards

M. Barthel

Hi Marco,

It looks like the layer you are using points to a txt file, try reformatting to a csv and all should work as expected.

Could you run Fiddler to check for any bottleneck?

Hi Mark,

thank you very much for the solution. 

I just tested it and used a *.csv file instead of *.txt file and now it's working.

I would like to know why this problem occurs with a *.txt file. Can you explain it to me?

Marco
