RT3.6 submit buttons css formatting problem

Hello

I have just completed a fresh RT3.6 install on a RHEL4 system. I 

followed the the install documentation on the wiki site
http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?RHEL4InstallGuide and all went
well (although some of the perl modules particularly the mason and
log:: dispatch did not install, I had to go to back to older versions
from the CPAN site before all would compile and install).

Anyway the problem I have is all the submit buttons, “login”, “Create”,
“Go”, “Search”, “New Ticket in”, " Modify Group rights" etc etc do not
seem to be displaying correctly, they are not the nice rounded edge
buttons from previous versions of RT. They consists of two square boxes
one just out side the other, blue color. It seems they are not getting
the css image formatting. I traced what I think are the rounded edges
used in the formatting to NoAuth/images/css, at first I thought it was
not find this directory, yet I am getting the rolldown-array and
rollup-arrow images which are in this same directory.

It only seems to be on the submit class=button

Any Ideas.

Thanks
Steve

This is the default 3.6 style. At no point in the past that I am aware
of has RT had rounded buttons. Your browser may have been rounding
the buttons or perhaps custom CSS.

Hope that helps,

Hello Thomas

Thanks for the reply, I have sent a couple of small image 

attachments to demonstrate, I am not sure if this is acceptable practice
for the mailing list but is the best way to show my point. The first
image is from RT 3.4.5 using FireFox 1.5.0.4 (Internet Explorer also
shows the same image), The second image is from a RT 3.6 default
installation, both FireFox and IE show the same image. The third image
is what gets displayed both by FireFox and IE if I run RT3.6 with the
3.4-compat CSS. The screenshots on the bestpractical website show images
similiar to the 1st and 3rd images of mine but with square corners. In
my case there is no customized CSS. I agree that the browser(s) may be
providing some CSS customization but why would they produce different
results depending on whether I run RT3.6 in 3.4-compat mode compared to
3.5-default mode.

This is not a huge issue to me, but my first impression was that the
submit buttons in RT3.6 looked like they had lost CCS information and
so I thought I had something incorrect in my configuration.

Thanks
Steve

PS some updated screenshots of RT 3.6 on the bestpractical website might
help show what is to be expected. Nice work though, thanks

Ah, I see why. RT 3.4.5 and the CSS for 3.6’s 3.4-compat styles don’t
style form buttons at all, and so the browser (FF or IE) uses the system
style for buttons, which is rounded (looks like you’re on XP). The
default 3.6 CSS provide styles for the buttons and so the system styles
aren’t used.

Hi Thomas

Yes I came to the same conclusion after looking around further. The 

hardest problems to solve are those where there are no problems. Thanks
for your comments.
