    we have an application that uses the RadGrid. 

    Our customer has set compatibility mode for the entire domain (evidently through group policy). 
    In compatibility mode our application has rendering problems, so we added the directive <add name = "X-UA-Compatible" value = "IE = edge" /> in IIS to force IE11 to work in standard mode.

    Now we have a problem: the radgrid shows the header not correctly aligned with the content of the grid.

    It seems that bringing IE from compatibility mode to standard mode is not the same as working directly in standard mode.

    Did you experienced this kind of problem?

    Thanks in advance for the support

    Hi Gianluca,

    One to the main reason for distorted appearance is the compatibility mode: Different appearance or behavior in Internet Explorer on local and production servers

    The article also mentions that if Compatibility mode is enabled by Group Policies, the X-UA Compatible tag is ignored: "Please keep in mind that if the Compatibility mode is enabled by a Group Policy setting, the X-UA Compatible meta tag is ignored."

    Another reason would be if the RadGrid has Scrolling enabled with static headers but the columns' width is not defined or is defined using percentage. One solution would be to set static width for the columns using Header-Style Width: Misaligned Columns in RadGrid with Scrolling Enabled

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Kind regards,
