    There is no specific forum for the RadPageLayout so have posted here.

    I found the following post... http://www.telerik.com/forums/radpagelayout-hiddenxx-properties-and-ie8

    It mentions that the Responsive layout is not supported in IE8 and below but that with some tweaks it may be possible in IE8. I would love to be able to utilise this feature in IE8 as our company currently only has IE8 deployed. What are the tweaks that need to be applied.

    Thanks

    Hello.

    IE8 just doesn't support media queries. It is possible, by using some fancy JavaScript to emulate media queries, but the outcome will not be as good as media queries.

    What are the resolutions you are interested in ?

    Not sure if you still have a need for this, but our company is still on IE8 also and I've had good success with Respond and RadPageLayout.

    Hi, Johnathan.

    We did consider using JS to provide some support for IE7 / 8, but we decided not to use scripts and use only styles. It's just that javascript can not compare with native support.

    Not to mention that in some cases we use the media query as a lower boundary and if we implement a javascript solution, things will look distorted at best.

    Finally, IE7-IE8 are not available on that many resolutions. The fluid PageLayout with one or two tweaks can serve anywhere between 960 (perfect for 13"-17") to 1280 (large desplays) resolutions. Even on a 24" 1920 x 1200 a site / app will look reasonably good without the need for responsive design.
