SharePoint 2007 : Color Picker hit "Could not complete the operation due to error 8007ffff" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,


    I'm working in SharePoint 2007 publishing page, when click on the "Text Color" (colour picker) icon in Rich Text Editor Toolbar.

    It hit JavaScript "Error on Page" error as below:


    Could not complete the operation due to error 8007ffff

    HtmlEditor.js                                                                         Line:1289

    Code: 0                                                                                Char: 3

    URI: http://mysite/_layouts/1033/HtmlEditor.js?rev=xxxxx


    After some testing, I found out that this error occurred in IE7 & IE8 but IE6 is working fine with the colour picker successfully popup.


    And click on "Edit HTML Source" icon in Rich Text Editor Toolbar, a popup windows for edit HTML, click the same button again, then the colour picker is working fine again.

    Reference from this threads http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointadmin/thread/2b773032-8c30-4b30-b250-5473261b7bd1/

    Please help. thanks in advanced

  • This issue has been fixed after run inetcpl.cpl, to delete all browsing history and personal data.

    After that, add the site as trusted site, try again and it is fixed.
