Q&A: Rendering Mode for Web Browser Controls (WebOCs)


Q: Eric, you mentioned that the IE8 Web Browser Control, hosted in Forms / WPF, runs in IE7 emulation mode by default.  Is there a way to turn the emulation mode off and have the control work in “real” IE8 mode?


A: Yes.  This is controlled by a feature control key.  See Matt Crowley’s post on Rendering Mode for WebOCs over on the IEBlog.

    And, of course, implementing this with a reg key is terrible.  As others have said, this should be done with CoInternetSetFeatureEnabled.
