iBrowse and Intermec Browser code incompatible due to name changes iBrowse_xxx is now IB_xxx

Recently we were faced with the following problem:

Customer wants to use SAP ITS Mobile with Intermec Browser on CN3 and iBrowse on 700 color. The problem we found is that intermec browser uses different META tags than iBrowse did. As you know, Intermec Browser is the successor of iBrowse, but it is not available for 700 color devices.

The META tags causing problems are the ones for checking/processing function keys:

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×70? content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘1');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×71? content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘2');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×72? content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘3');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×73? content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘4');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×74? content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘5');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×75? content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘6');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×76? content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘7');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×77? content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘8');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×78? content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘9');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×79? content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘10');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×7A” content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘11');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×7B” content=”Javascript:setFKey(‘12');”>

<META HTTP-Equiv=”IB_OnKey0×000d” content=”Javascript:setOkCodeEnter();”>

This code is OK for Intermec Browser but for iBrowse you have to replace ALL IB_OnKey by iBrowse_OnKey.

I don't know why this has been changed and why the old syntax cannot be used anymore.

If you need HTML working with both locked down browsers, you can enter IB_OnKey and iBrowse_OnKey in parallel. The browser ignores what it does not recognize.
