Steps to reproduce

If a web page contains the following iframe:

<iframe id="iframeBankIDAutoStart" src="test:"></iframe>

the JavaScript window.onload event is not raised in the Edge browser. Internet Explorer 11 works correctly.

Steps to reproduce:
Open a page with the following markup (see the attached ‘issue.html’ page) in the Edge browser:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>Html Page</title>
window.onload = function() {
alert(“window loaded”);
<iframe id="iframeBankIDAutoStart" src="test:"></iframe>

Actual result:
No alert message

Expected result:
An alert message with the “window loaded” text

See the attached ‘issue.swf’ screen cast for details.

    Changed Assigned To to “Travis L.”

    Changed Status to “Confirmed”

    Changed Status from “Confirmed”

  • Any progress on this? How come it has been changed from Confirmed?

    (I am the developer who originally detected this problem but as we initially blamed DevExpress, they have submitted the bug to you)

  • Hi, it’s 8/12/2018 almost a year from the last comment and still no movement on this? I’m just wondering if it will ever get fixed.
