IE 8


we have an application that uses mainly the grids and some buttons from Active Widgets. Today I did some tests with IE 8 and it's complaining about the following code lines:

-----> snip <-----
Not implemented
aw.js, line 31 character 4577
-----> snap <-----
-----> snip <-----
Not implemented
aw.js, line 31 character 3572
-----> snap <-----

Thanks in advance.

Hi peter

Did u tried your test on IE 8.0 beta or RC?

AW 2.0.2 does not work in IE8 when the page has a standards mode doctype. As a temporary solution I would recommend switching IE8 to 'Compatibility View' mode using this tag on your page -

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

See - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc288325(VS.85).aspx#SetMode

AW 2.5.3 works 100% in IE8 quirks and compatibility modes and mostly works in IE8 standards mode except for a few minor issues. However I would still recommend switching IE8 to 'Compatibility View' until the next AW release (in 3-4 weeks from now), which should fully support IE8 in standards mode.

I use the final release of IE8.

Thanks for the update on the release. For the moment I will force the compatility view and wait for the update.
