  • App is not loaded in compatibility mode in IE

    Hi,

    we have problem with compatibility mode for IE10 and IE11. Our application is not loaded with this setting.
    You have the same problem with showcase page http://www.smartclient.com/smartgwt/showcase/#main.

    Compatibility mode for IE 10 is recommendation from Microsoft.

    Can you please advice us if we can somehow make our app run in compatibility mode in IE10 and IE11 ?

    Thanks

        I don't get it. If you use <!DOCTYPE html>, you already automatically trigger standards mode (check with F12, don't you?), which is what Isomorphic suggests.
        Why would you want to enforce Quirks mode?

        Where does "Compatibility mode for IE 10 is recommendation from Microsoft." in your 1st post come from?

        Actually, MSDN says otherwise.

          Just to make it official - Blama is correct, you need to be using standards mode, compatability mode is not actually recommended by Microsoft, and even if it were, that would hardly be relevant since they broke IE9 in compatability mode anyway.

              No. Again, Microsoft broke the browser in compatability mode. It has severe memory leaks and rendering issues that cannot be solved.
