Menu control broken with IE8

I have a masterpage with Menu control.  It has been working well with IE7, but is broken under IE8.  When you mouse over top level you see a gray area where the next level menu items used to be under IE7.

Any ideas?

Thank you,

put this in your head section, it will force IE8 to IE7 compatibility mode for your website.

Thank you - this certainly works.

Is a "real" fix forthcoming?  Are there other problems caused by the new version?

Much appreciated!

One more question, if you don't mind - after this fix is applied, will Asp.Menu work in BOTH IE7 and IE8, or IE8 only?


Thank you,

The menu control is out of my control
Here's my situation, I've been searching for about 2 weeks to try to do this without any luck. My limited knowledge of ASP doesn't help but I should have found an answer by now because it seems so simple. So here it is. I'm using the menu control and the CSS Friendly Control Adapters 2.0 to make it a bit easier to apply CSS to. ShowStartingNode is set to false because I want to see the whole menu. I have the menu just how I want it. Now, I want to be able to hide certain nodes in the menu. Not so users cant access them (some people have suggested using access control but this...

How do you control the menu control?
I am using the ASP 2.0 menu control.  When my submenus display, they display on top of the text that is already there from the content page.  The result is an unreadable mixture of text from both the page and the submenu.  Is there a way to force the submenu text to be on top of the content page's text without showing the content page text?  I don't see a property that can do this.  Thanks. The pop out panels should not be transparent and they should appear on top of the content page (unless the z-index of your controls are greater than 1). Please could you pr...

Menu control and Image control
Hi I've recently been building a website using 2005, I added a menu along the top of the web page, and a logo image just below the menu. The problem is when the mouse cross over the menu, the parent menu populates its sub menu, but the sub menu droping down behind the image, so that I couldn't click the sub menu, I reckon that there might be a component layer management technique should be used for this situation.

Retain state of controls on menu item click (Menu control)
I have a project setup as Master-Content pages. I have also included a Menu control in the master page. I have some textboxes and dropdownlists in content pages. The problem is that when I click any of the menu items, the page gets refreshed instead of doing a postback and all the values of the controls are gone. This creates a problem in a case where user is on one item page, he types in some values, does a postback, gets the results, and then if goes to other item in the menu and comes back, all those values are gone. How can I retain the values of controls (textboxes, dropdownl...
