View Full Version : toolbar not properly displayed by IE8 in IE7 mode

3 Aug 2009, 4:32 AM
I have a 'stand alone' toolbar which displays properly on all browsers (Opera, Firefox, Safari, IE6 and IE7 and even IE8). The problem appears when I emulate IE7 under IE8 using the meta tag X-UA-Compatible content=IE=EmulateIE7. (I use a google map ..)

This is the result under ie8 in ie7 mode: http://flauto.de/images/ie8.jpg
and here is the 'proper' version. http://flauto.de/images/ie7.jpg

I had this problem with ie7 before, but after doing rendering in the proper way, it disappeared. Under ie8 it work properly unless the ie7 emulation is activated.

I found that the problem exists even with the menu example in the extjs distribution: just extend the header to

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<meta http-equiv=X-UA-Compatible content=IE=EmulateIE7 /> <!------ ...
