    Tableau Server embedded viz keeps redrawing/resizing in Internet Explorer 8 (IE8)

    Matthew Miller

      I've seen a strange behavior a couple of times before, both with 7.x and 8.0.x, when embedding Tableau Server views in web page. I'm not sure how to fix it. I have a dashboard published to Server and set to auto-resize (this is a requirement). Whether I use the Javascript API to embed or use script embedding with an <object> tag, when displayed in IE8 the viz keeps growing and shrinking, constantly resizing. It's as if it notices that it can grow to fill the space, so it does, then realizes it has grown too big, sprouts scrollbars, and trims itself down, only to grow again. It's sort of the Tom Arnold of visualizations, y'know?

       

      I've tried a few things to resolve it:

       

      • Tweaking the size settings every which way
      • Embedding every way possible
      • Digging through reams of JS to try to find where this is happening.

       

      Anyone else ever seen this? What did you do to resolve it?

       

      Thanks in advance!
