I implemented the RadNotification control on my website and it works great in IE9 and FF.  When I browse to the site using IE8, an "Unspecified Javascript Error" dialog pops up and the notification control never displays.  Please help!!!

Hi Edward,

When a JavaScript error is thrown on the page scripts are no longer executed and thus the RadNotification cannot be shown, because it relies on JavaScript.

The error you report is quite generic and with just that information there is no way to tell what the reason for it may be. You need to debug your site and see where it originates. In case this comes from your custom scripts/functionality you would need to resolve this before any other JavaScript based controls can work on your page.

I get a similar issue but I have no errors on my page. 
I'm running in IE8 with Windows XP. 

The timer that is built into the RadNotification control does still work, I can also get a reference to the control via javascript.

Hi Colin,

Could you clarify what is the exact issue you are having? The OP has a JS error and if none is present in your case things should be running smoothly.

If you still cannot see the notification I can suggest you try setting its Pinned property to false so instead of fixes position it will use absolute. If your browser is in quirks mode it may be going towards IE6 mode, so it may not understand the position: fixed rule.

If this is not your case I would need some code that shows the problem so I can help further.

I had a similar issue with IE8 and corrected my issue by removing a reference to an external jquery.js file and replacing with the below to use the jquery from telerik.

This might save someone some headaches.
