    Hi kollam2003,

    The reason for it is that because of the new architecture of IE8, it calls a code in RadFormDecorator's logic which is intended to be used for other browsers.

    We do not provide support for BETA browsers, but once IE8 is out of BETA stage, e.g. all changes in its core are finalized, we will change the logic of the RadFormDecorator control accordingly.

    IE8 shipped today:  http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/

    Looks like you can finalize the necessary changes to the RadFormDecorator.  In the meantime, do you have any work-a-rounds?

    Thanks!

    I just spent the last 2 hours trying to figure this out...  I'm just getting up to speed with the RadTools and was trying to get the decorator to work but alas, it works just fine in FF... IE8 not so good.  I thought it was something I was doing incorrectly.

    Thankfully I found this thread, now I can stop banging my head on the desk.

    Hi guys,


    We are currently working on making RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX fully compatible with the official version of IE8 that was released yesterday and we have a service pack planned in 2 weeks at latest. Until then, we suggest to use the following meta tag in your pages as a temporary solution:

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" />

    You dont think that using the beta version and the code resources prior to the release date to fix issues would have been a good idea? You guys have been terrific, but to wait for the final release of IE8 to get things working is a little crazy. I think my first real complaint against Telerik.

    Hi ToddKC,

    Well our experience with browser releases shows that usually the Beta versions of the browsers are quite different in some manners than the official version - for example IE7, Firefox 2 / 3, Opera 9, Safari 3 / 4. After all, they are in Beta for a reason.
    That is why we established practice to wait for the official browser release and then to provide an official service pack of our controls. There were numerous occasions when we "fixed" things to work in the Beta only to have to "fix" them again once the official version is released. For IE8 the same pattern was followed.

    Hello Кunal,

    From the information that you provided, it seems that for some reason the scripts for the framework and the controls failed to load. To be able to help, however, we need to get a better view over your exact case. Please open a support ticket and send us a sample project where the problem can be reproduced so we can examine it. This blog post will help you in isolating the problem in a separate project.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
