Enable JavaScript in BIRT report viewer

Steven Melcher (6012430) | asked Sep 21 '11, 3:24 p.m.
I have a BIRT report in RTC that uses some client-side JavaScript.

When I preview the report in the Report Designer, the JavaScript works properly. Yet when I add the report as a template and open it in Eclipse none of the client JavaScript works.

Adding the report to My Favorites and opening the report in Internet Explorer 9 has the same issue, but I can copy the URL and the report works in Firefox as long as JavaScript is enabled.

Is there a setting to enable JavaScript in the BIRT report viewer in Eclipse?

I turned on the Developer Tools in IE9 and started debugging. Whenever I click on anything that has an onclick property causes and error.

It is a SCRIPT5007 error where it says that the JavaScript method being called is null or not defined

"SCRIPT5007: The value of the property 'hello' is null or undefined, not a Function object "

I made a simple HTML file that has an identical JavaScript function and a button that calls it when clicked, and it works in IE9.

Something must happen to the HTML/JavaScript in the BIRT report because the same code and button do not work in IE or the report viewer; They only work in the report preview and in Firefox.
