    I am implementing the date picker in my system, and the control throws an error in jquery library when run using Ie7 and Ie8 compatibility mode.. I run on Ie10

    I know there is a thread which discusses the same issue...
    http://www.kendoui.com/forums/kendo-ui-web/date-time-pickers/datepicker-use-ie9-compatibility-mode-ie7-or-ie8-day-not-selected.aspx

     it says.. its fixed in the latest version.. i have the latest one (kendoui.web.2013.2.716)... but i still experience the issue..

    I took a screen recording and uploaded on youtube..

    I am fine, as long as there is a confirmation from telerik team that, it wud work fine on direct Ie7 and 8 browsers and not the compatibility mode... will it?

    Hello Chris,

    The observed Javascript error is caused by a jQuery bug and is exhibited in IE10 in IE7/Compatibility mode only.

    http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/12577

    The error is not exhibited in a true IE7. Please note that if a given IE version behaves differently, compared to the supposedly identical browser mode of a newer IE version, we support the older true browser.

    You can use a meta tag or HTTP headers to force IE10 to some other mode.
