IE7 no longer supported in v15.1 and above

ASP.NET Team Blog
16 February 2015

The DevExpress ASP.NET controls will no longer support Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) in version 15.1 and above.

If you still have to support IE7 then you can use v14.2 of our ASP.NET controls, but my advice is to move forward. Once IE security updates are no longer available, your risk window will start to expand.

Your feedback

Recently I asked if dropping IE7 would affect you and your customers.

The response was a resounding call to drop IE7 and move our codebase forward.

Thank you for your feedback.

Upgrade to latest IE

I recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer.

Why? Because many modern websites do not support older browsers. Read more here.

And older browsers also prevent us from moving forward. Read more here.

Project Spartan (IE in Windows 10)

I'm excited to see the new versions of IE that are being announced with Windows 10. With a possible new rendering engine, improved JavaScript, etc. It's an exciting time to be a web developer.

And, as usual, DevExpress web technologies will support the popular released browsers.

Might i suggest a light weight ie7 and lower compatible component for alerting the user to upgrade.

Tim, you can add a similar alert to your website, and this solution is more customizable than adding the same popup/alert/whatever to DX controls.

Hi Tim,

If you are interested in adding a warning banner to your websites, then try this small bit of HTML:

Sounds good! Do you have a rough timeline of when 15.1 will be released? We're very excited about the new ASPxRichEdit control!
