Not able to work on Helix application with IE 11 RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is an application on Agile PLM for Process (Prodika) which has been working well so far on IE 9. We have plans to migrate to IE 11 and have been experiencing some trouble while testing on IE 11. The text boxes look distorted, the fields don't have visible boxes against them (they appear only after clicking at random places).

    We have a finding - The XML file that is used to apply enterprise/document mode is not being interpreted correctly by IE11. It successfully sets Enterprise Mode, but is unable to apply document mode. The XML structure is generated by your Microsoft application, enterprise mode sitelist manager. Checked the XML it generates and it complies with the standards found from Microsoft’s site. 

    We can however approach this from the application side instead of the browser side. By adding the following meta tag to the master page for Helix, the browser will switch to the correct document mode. 

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" /> 

    The caveat, this will also impact IE9 and IE 11 instead of just IE11. IE9 will attempt to render in document mode 7. IE9 & IE11 would handle that emulation differently. 

    Question - If we go ahead and add this meta tag, what are the implications on IE 9 again? Can you give the full version information. Please let us know your suggestion on this.

  • Hi,

    ADD a VALID DOCUMENT TYPE DECLARATION to your web page.

    Validate and correct any markup errors at validator.w3.org or validator.w3.org/nu (if using the html5 spec exclusively). Use the direct input tab of the validators to copy and paste your page source from intranet sites.

  • Hi,

    To avoid affacts the behavior on IE 9, I would like to suggest that we can use script to determin the IE version and use different HTML code according to the version code.

  • Thank you, I would like to share one observation.

    After adding <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" />

    Once I log in, the page has the document mode changed to IE 7 as per the new settings - as expected. This is the main / dashboard page. But the server information is missing from the bottom of the page
