Annotate documents in internet explorer using .NET

IE8+ is supported by GroupDocs. But when I embed GroupDocs.Annotation for .NET in an IFrame that is hosted in a SharePoint 2010 website which forces X-UA-Compatible content=“IE=8”, the view is scrambled and no document is shown (see attached screenshot).

If I use IE9 it is rendered better and pretty well in IE10 or EDGE mode.

Do I have to force a HTML5 SharePoint MasterPage (which might cause improper SharePoint functionality) or is there another way to solve this issue?

Many thanks in advance!


We are sorry to hear that you have such issue. Since embedded Annotation is rendered well in the other (newest) versions of the IE browser the reason of the issue is fully related to the IE8 browser.

To resolve the issue please try to add this code:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible"content=“IE=edge” />

to the head section of the page where you embeded the Annotation iframe.
