In IE, the dropdown item cover the input textbox causing that only half of its area are showed. It is a serious problem in the controls.

However the AutoCompleteTextBox can work well in IE compatible mode, but it is not we expected because the page should work well in IE normal mode not in IE compatible mode.

Did anyone else find this problem?

Please find the screen snapshot and source code at below link as I can't upload attachs, looking forward for your helps. Thanks.

Hi Yujin, 

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

 We suggest you to remove the border style defined for body element in site.css file, in order to overcome the rendering issue with AutoComplete Dropdown element. Please refer the following code snippet,



body {

    background-color: #fff;

    /*border-top: solid 10px #000;*/

    color: #333;

    font-size: .85em;

    font-family: "Segoe UI", Verdana, Helvetica, Sans-Serif;

    margin: 0;

    padding: 0;



Please download the sample from the following link:



Kindly let us know if you have further queries.
