Hi,

I'm using build "v2015.2.902".

When using placholder property on IE8, the placeholder value is posted when submited the form. Quite annoying !

I noticed same behaviour with numeric text box.

Any clue ?

 

Another thing: hard to browse kendo ui demos web site with IE8 today, many positionning glitchs make it unusable.

 

Thank you.

Hi frederic,

By default, IE8 does not support the placeholder attribute and we perform further actions in order to mimic the same look. However, this leads to some undesired side effects such as the one you have described. As a workaround I suggest to clear the value of the <input> element when submitting the form (note this will not affect the widget's value). Here is a basic demo

The layout issues of the Kendo UI online demos in IE8 are due to the fact that the browser does not support the responsive features of the widgets. However, you can browse the offline demos which are available in the examples folder of the Kendo UI bundle or use a different web browser.
