Hello,

It seems that the component does not work in IE9, based on clicking around on the RadSpell demos on the site.  After a few clicks, the popup window shows up, but is blank. 

I have also had the issue on a simple web application when debugging in Visual Studio.  Seems an exception is thrown when trying to create an iframe element (if in IE).  I have attached the screenshot from VS.

Thanks,

-Chris

Hi Chris,

The reported problem is fixed in Q3 2010 beta release. You can verify this by testing the Default Example of the beta spellchecker at: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax-beta/spell/examples/whatsnew/defaultcs.aspx.

I have the same problem, RadSpell stopped working when clients upload to IE9.

The main problem with this is that when I download and upgrade the telerik dll it breaks a load of other things in the projects, including slide panels, panel zones, and multi-select drop downs.

The second problem is that you have fixed in a new release, which requires us to BUY the fix for a defective component.

I have to say I am fed up with this "buy to stay alive" mentality - service packs and hot fixes should be free.

Hi,

If you do not want to upgrade to a version of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX which officially supports IE9, than you can fix the problem by rendering the page in IE8 mode via the following meta tag:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" />
