I am building a Kendo UI application which is working perfectly fine in IE11. But when I add the site to be displayed in compatibility mode in IE11 i am getting an error "'NodeFilter' is undefined'. It raises this error while rendering the layout. see below code.var appRouter = new kendo.Router({
init: function () {
layout.render("#application");
}
});Error is raised in kendo.web.min.js where it tries to remove white spaces (I guess by the name). This is the line of code that is failing.var t=document.createNodeIterator(n,NodeFilter.SHOW_TEXT,function(t){...}

Just learned that NodeFilter is a property for window object. window.NodeFilter is null when compatibility mode is enabled in IE11. But Telerik demo SPA site works fine under these settings.

I have posted this question here also http://stackoverflow.com/questions/24372876/nodefilter-is-undefined-error-when-using-ie-compatibility-mode-with-kendo-ui-spa

Hi Raja,

Due to numerous quirks (like the one you have encountered) Kendo UI does not support IE compatibility mode

Thanks Petyo. Just curious on how your SPA demo site Sushi works in compatibility mode. It is not fully functional but it does load the home page.

Hi Raja,

Most likely the demo works because the codebase does not hit this particular execution path (the strip whitespace method).
