      Description

      Hi,

      I am trying to get into the WFS component of GeoServer. I have had a look at the MapBuilder demos (from the MapBuilder download - http://mapbuilder.sourceforge.net) and also the ones which come with GeoServer (at http://localhost:8080/geoserver/data/mbdemos/index.html - (wfs-t and cite)

      My problem is when I try to run a page (e.g. wfs-t demo) I get a grey map screen (image1.jpg) and overview map. When I zoom in and out of the map the data flashes up momentarily (image2.jpg) but the grey map (image1.jpg) comes back.

      Has anyone any ideas? I have gone through the help pages and looked on google.

      Thanks

      Chris Ewing

        I'd guess that you have configured MapBuilder to request wms layers in PNG format. You are also using IE to view the map.
        IE cannot display transparent PNGs correctly, in which case a workaround is needed. You can either try to view your map in Firefox/Mozilla, or configure MapBuilder to grab layers in GIF format.
