    We have many ascx controls that are full of different radcontrols in each that are loaded into aspx pages. We have been experiencing some problems with IE8. We have two datepickers and an editor on the same ascx page which are flawlessly rendered in Firefox and Chrome but IE8 has serious problems.

    If we place datepickers before the editor; the editor is not rendered correctly. The toolbars are not displayed in IE8. If we place datepickers after the editor, then, the calendar icon and the popup is not displayed correctly. 

    This happens only in IE8 and we do not get any javascript errors at all. What can be the cause of this problem?

    I took screen captures of this strange behavior...

    We were able to overcome this problem by setting "enableembeddedskins" to "false" for the datepickers and setting the "skin" to a mockup custom skin by getting the standard "Default" skin css files and renaming it.

    Hello,

    I am testing my pages on IE8 and haven't seen this problem before...

    Does the problem occurs with all the skins or only with some?
    Did you try the Compatibility Mode of IE8 to isolate the problem?

    Unfortunately the problem still continues... :(

    @David:
    The compatibility mode does not solve the problem. The problem occurs regardless of the skin.

    Hi Mehmet,

    This looks like the max-32-CSS-files limitation in IE. Please use a RadStyleSheetManager to combine the embedded skins to a single request.

    Thanks for your reply Dimo. It appears to be the source of the problem. :)
