WebBrowser meta X-UA-Compatible

We have a problem of displaying cloud confluence in WebBrowser C# WPF component or C++ IWebBrowser2 component. The default settings of that components uses IE7 document mode based on meta mark in head of the HTML page.

When I open cloud confuence in the header there is this meta mark:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EDGE,chrome=IE7">

But it is wrong and the webbrowser component opens the page and displays some javascript errors.

Error: A meta element with an http-equiv attribute whose value is X-UA-Compatible must have a content attribute with the value IE=edge.


The right meta mark should be as follows:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">


I haven't found any possible way to change that mark. Can you change that mark somehow?


The only other solution is to set registry of each computer where the app using the webbrowser component is presented, which is not a good technique.


Thank you for any suggestions.

Thank you for contacting us about this.

Can you just clarify, what exactly is the web browser you're trying to access your site with?

The following Supported Browsers are confirmed to work with Cloud sites. It's not possible to adjust the information directly on the Cloud site as you require.
