I am upgrading my web site from the old ASP.NET controls to the ASP.NET AJAX controls.  The grids looked fine in development on my PC.  After publishing the site to the test server, all of the grids dropped off the first column!

In IE8,  localhost was included in the websites to be displayed in Compatibility View by IE8, so I removed it.  Now the first columns are missing when I run my site locally.

I tried setting MasterTableView to width 100%, but this had no effect.

Anyone know why this is happening?  Thanks.

Hi Dan,

Which RadControls version exactly are you upgrading to? The observed issue may be triggered by the following things:

- you have columns with Display="false" set
- the web page is running in quirks mode (no XHTML DOCTYPE)

You can try modifying your application, according to the information above, or try the latest RadControls version.

Let us know if the problem persists. In this case, please send a simple demo.

Hi.  I'm upgrading to the 2010.1.309 Ajax control set.  I've found the problem.

When Microsoft came out with IE8, we found that our web sites with the older ASP.NET controls did not display properly.  But this was fixed by inserting this meta tag into our master page:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

This was still in my code when I upgraded to 2010.1.309 Ajax and found that the grids were all dropping the first column.  Weird.  I removed the meta tag, and the problem with the grids disappeared.  Now the question will be, does dropping the meta tag cause other problems for my web sites that I have yet to find.

Hello Dan,

Removing the meta tag will make IE8 behave as IE8, that is, run in standards mode if you have an XHTML doctype. There should be no problems with RadControls in this mode, but you might want to check your custom application CSS, if such exists.

Best wishes,
