We are using Telerik RadControls for ASP.NET Ajax version 2013.1.403.40 in an ASP.NET 4.0 web application being viewed in IE8 browsers.
The Document Mode of the browser gets set (via X-UA-Compatible) to IE8 Standards, but since we are on an intranet that we don't control, the Browser Mode is stuck on IE8 Compatibility View, meaning that the userAgent string and other navigator properties report the browser as IE7.
Is there any way around this situation? For example, is there some way to force RadEditor to a particular browser version, or can a custom build be made that does this? We are also going to experiment with newer versions of RadControls, but I'm not confident that this won't introduce different issues related to the browser version confusion, so I'm hoping for a more definitive solution.
Thank you for your time,
