Change Doc type to IE8 or IE8 Compatibility mode

Change Doc type to IE8 or IE8 Compatibility mode:

There are some old development that doesn't support in newer version of IE and Chrome. So best option is to make changes in code work for latest IE versions and Chrome. But this is the case not always possible for example previous code was built using third party controls (Infragistics in my case) to make it work with Newer version of IE we need upgraded version on Infragistics and it involves addition cost of licensing.
One other work around if it is possible to support only IE  browser than we can use solution suggested below: (BUT it is not best solution)

 <title> My Page</title>
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8">

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8">

Note : Make sure to use meta tag just after title tag otherwise it wont work.

Happy Coding...
Happy Concepts...
Happy Living....
