Re: Gwt user agent issue in IE8

I inherit the module User, hence I have not explicitly added setting for the browser, but IE8 is not displaying the application and running with wait cursor indefinitely. Hence, I added this setting for IE8, 9 and Chrome. Again no luck for IE8 but works for IE9 and Chrome as expected.

<inherit ...User/>

<!-- Mask error message -->
<set-configuration-property name="user.agent.runtimeWarning" value="false"/> 
<set-property name="gxt.user.agent" value="ie8,ie9,chrome"/>

Besides Index.html is referring the below meta tag, Is that causing it.
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EDGE" />

I tried change browser mode using F12, and then see the application in IE8 but I noticed that there was a class added into HTML tag.

<html class=" ext-strict" style="overflow: hidden;">

If I set the below attribute in the Gwt module, it works in IE8 but not in IE9.

Thanks for the reply. You're right, the browser Chrome Frame has been added in Gwt module.

Maybe the IE8 you have tested activates compatibility mode for your site? Or it has installed Chrome Frame that maybe causes issues? As long as you have referenced ie8 in the user.agent property (or haven't changed the user.agent property at all) it should work.

Not sure what you mean with runtimeWarning.
