Hi there i just want to report a bug i noticed on Ext 2x versions on IE8
Besides i have read ie8 still its not yet supported but just for the record and give you the warning

TESTED OS and browsers
  • Windows Vista with IE8
  • XP sp3 with IE8
Tested Grid inside the next containers:
  • Tab panel
  • Panel with border layout
Tested versions
  • 2.0.1
  • 2.0.2
  • 2.2.1
I have this code as small sample on how im creating my grid
HTML Code:
    var myarea_inbox_grid = new Ext.grid.GridPanel({
        store: myarea_inbox_ds,
        cm: myarea_inbox_colModelx,    
        sm: myarea_inbox_sm,
        viewConfig: {
            autofill: false, 
            emptyText :'theres no records..!'
        tbar: myarea_inbox_tbarx,    
        bbar: myarea_inbox_bbarx
An the result is this (image) :

NOW if i set the compatibility header for IE8 as follows

HTML Code:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" > <!-- IE7 mode -->
But in order to make it work as i desire i have to add my domain on the compatibility view configuration. I got the desired results emulating ie7 but not on Ie8:

Pd:the working sample i have it but the code its for a client and i cannot give acces just like that,im willing to provide access only to Extjs staff if you want to check it out
pm me pls.
