I tried the demo that you are referring to and it is working as expected in Internet Explorer 9. I am attaching a short screen capture showing the steps I followed to test it.
If it is convenient for you, could you send us a screenshot or a short screen capture of the described issue in the demo or a sample project reproducing it, so we could assist you further?
