ASP.Net Menu Control Problem with IE8

When loading a website that utilises the asp:menu control, in the development machine it works fine but on the server (in our case Windows Server 2003 R2) the menu isn’t shown correctly. Instead a blank panel would be viewed. As a temporary solution, the IE8 compatibility button can be clicked, but some styles might not work well with IE7 compatibility. So below please find the patch for asp:menu which can be applied to Windows or Windows Server, to build IE8-compatible ASP.NET WebForms sites…

For Windows XP and Windows Server 2003…

For Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008…

Happy Menuing 🙂

  1. Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
    I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
