End-to-End ASP.NET MVC 5 : Using Conditional Comments to Support Older Versions Of IE

Older versions of IE have problems supporting the newer JavaScript libraries and HTML5 tags.  In the previous blog we've created responsive layout in ASP.NET MVC.  In this blog we are going to use conditional comments to support older versions of Internet Explorer (IE).  Since IE 9 seems to be the cutoff point we will use it in our conditional comment base condition to decide whether we want to do something different to support IE.  We will be working with the MvcApp project.

Step-By-Step Instructions:

1.  Open the MvcApp application
2.  Open the _Layout.cshtml
3.  Inside the <head> tag

    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
      <script src="https://oss.maxcdn.com/html5shiv/3.7.2/html5shiv.min.js"></script>
      <script src="https://oss.maxcdn.com/respond/1.4.2/respond.min.js"></script>
      <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <![endif]-->



The code above says to include the html5shiv.min.js and response.min.js from maxcdn.com if the browser's version is less than IE 9 with the line <!--[if lt IE 9]>. The html5shiv library supports HTML5 elements in IE and the response library supports media queries in IE. Inside the "if" condition it also tells the layout to use JQuery 1.xxx versions for IE.

The complete code should look like the following in the _Layout.cshtml
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
        <title>@Page.Title</title>
        @RenderSection("head", required: false)
        @Styles.Render("~/Content/bootstrap")
        @Styles.Render("~/Content/css")
        <!--[if lt IE 9]>
      <script src="https://oss.maxcdn.com/html5shiv/3.7.2/html5shiv.min.js"></script>
      <script src="https://oss.maxcdn.com/respond/1.4.2/respond.min.js"></script>
      <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <![endif]-->

    </head>
    <body>
        <header>
            <nav class="navbar navbar-default navbar-fixed-top">
                    <div class="row">

  6. Commonly way about accomplishing this is exactly to make a cleaning company which might come for and do the cleaning for your needs. Generally, this is exactly done subsequently after hours when workers commonly are not present, so the business functions aren't altered. cleaning services abu dhabi
