Error description

  • When setting a checkbox in heritage coach, the value returned
    is different when using Internet Explorer (IE) or FireFox (FF)
    after visibility of the control change from disabled to enabled.
    
    
    The difference is due to the different ways that IE and FF
    handle a 'checked' attribute/property.
    
    When using getAttribute, IE returns the "checked" dom property
    while FF is looking for the "checked" attribute which is
    different from the 'checked' property in the DOM.
