I'm working on an application using GridPanels that work fine on Chrome or IE8 in Standards Mode. However, my audience consists mostly of people using IE8 on Windows machines, locked down to disable access to settings. By default, this means that "Display intranet sites in Compatibility View" is on and there's no way to override it with any headers or meta tags, so the IE browser mode is "IE 8 Compat View" instead of the proper "IE 8".
This makes grids more or less unusable, with badly sized column headers, hidden columns displayed and column resizing that doesn't work. I've seen discussions of all these issues, but apparently nobody here was unable to disable Compat View before. Any suggestions on how to deal with this? I'd really appreciate the secret override...
