Root Cause

This problem is caused by a bug in IE.Things are working fine in FF and chrome.IE does not properly re- position DOM elements when we have a absolute positioned element inside a static positioned element.


This issue is resolved through the following local change:
Placed below javascript based solution in userworkform.

<style id='reflowStyleNode'>
.iconErrorDiv span{

if ( pega && pega.u && pega.u.d && pega.u.d.registerResize){

if ( ){
var styleNode = document.getElementById("reflowStyleNode");
if (styleNode){
if(window.attachEvent && !window.opera) {
styleNode.styleSheet.cssText = '.iconErrorDiv span{ position: absolute; }';
} else {
var styleText = document.createTextNode('.iconErrorDiv span{ position: absolute; }');
