Does anyone else find that the navigation dropdowns no longer work correctly with Windows 7 / IE ?

The dropdown appears but is blank...

Yep, I saw that, but thought it was just me because I upgraded to that IE version on an old computer, without much grunt. I wonder if there is a solution, anyone???

try to render in IE7 compatible mode with this meta:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

Example:

<html>

<head>

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

      <title>My Web Page</title>

 </head>

<body>

<p>Content goes here.</p>

</body>

</html>

 

you can also change web.config:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
  <system.webServer>
    <httpProtocol>
     <customHeaders>
        <clear />
        <add name="X-UA-Compatible" value="IE=EmulateIE7">
      </customHeaders>
    </httpProtocol>
  <system.webServer>
</configuration>

Hello Arturzarski,

I tried your <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" /> the site.master page, is this where it was meant to go? which didn't change anything, so I also tried your web.config code but that broke the site completely, so I remove the code form the web.config and it's back to the way it was.

Just as added info, I am using Visual Studio 2008 and even when I tried to place the code in the web.config I knew it wouldn't work because VS2008 didn't like it, but I uploaded and tried anyway, unsuccessfully. I only used this part of your code in the already extensive web.config code:

    <httpProtocol>
     <customHeaders>
        <clear />
        <add name="X-UA-Compatible" value="IE=EmulateIE7">
      </customHeaders>
    </httpProtocol>

Any additional help would be great.

Regards
Ron
