    Hi,

    Our issue is our company uses IE8 and it is set to IE8 Compatibility mode for the browser mode. This prevents the javascript from executing in the iframed or script-embedded JotForm.

    We don't have a public-exposed page with the embedding of the form. But to demonstrate a test with a simple .htm page and any JotForm with javascript (like hint fields or a date field) will do.

    On our page, we can tell IE8 to run in regular IE8 mode using a few meta settings. I think we need the iframe or script hook to return the proper meta tags too. We set the X-UA-Compatible to ie=edge as the first element in the head.

    Thanks

    Thank you for contacting us regarding the IE8 compatibility issue.

    I was able to reproduce it, so I have escalated a ticket to our Developers in order to add the 'ie=edge' meta tag.

    However, it looks like that added tag fixed the problem on my test page.

    Can you check this from your side?

    We will update this thread as soon as we have any news.

    We added this request to our feature requests list. For now you should probably use the full source code and add that line manually.
