    Now that IE8 has been released on Windows Update we have begun testing our application with the browser.  We are finding that the width of a RadWindow cannot be changed.  We have also noticed that the browser instance appears to be looping for no reason and eating up processor time.  The same application worked perfect in IE7.

    Please advise if this is a known issue.

    Regards,

    Hi Fred,

    I tried to reproduce the problem with the following code:

    function openFn() 
        var oWnd = radopen('http://www.google.com',null);  
        alert("setting size");  
        oWnd.setSize(500,500);  
        alert("moving");  
        oWnd.moveTo(100,100);  

    but as you could see from the attached movie, everything is working as expected.

    Since you are the first to report such problem, I would like to ask you to open a support ticket and to send us a small sample project where this issue could be reproduced. We will check it and do our best to help.

    Thank you.. I have found that it is an IE8 issue.  An explanation of the issue is at this link: http://www.atalasoft.com/cs/blogs/davidcilley/archive/2009/01/28/internet-explorer-8-iframe-height-nesting-bug.aspx

    The problem is related to having nexted IFrames and Tables or Div's that are a mix of percentage size and fixed PX size.  IE8 does not support this and renders it incorrectly.  We have nested tables and div's that we resize in javascript code.  This makes the issue show itself.

    Thank you....
