Hello I'm using ZK6.5.4 on CentOS6.3. I write small code below. They are zul and java file.

With IE11 on Windows8.1, I pushed "Update" button, but I can't see "hello test" message in eclipse Console window. If I use IE10 on Windows7, I see the message in Console window.

Could you please tell me how to fix it ?


<?page title="Auto Generated index.zul" contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8" viewport="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" ?>
<?meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" ?>

  <?taglib uri="http://www.zkoss.org˽sp/web˼ore" prefix="c"?>

<window title="Hello World!!" border="normal" width="200px">
<label value="You are using: ${desktop.webApp.version}"/>
<button label="Update" onClick="com.test.demo.TestPkg.print_console();"/>


package com.test.demo;

public class TestPkg {
    static public void  print_console()
        System.out.println( "Hello test");

Hi, please check the IE11 compatibility changes - "If you currently use the x-ua-compatible header to target a legacy document mode, it's possible your site won't reflect the best experience available with IE11."

But, following site says that DOCTYPE must be '< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">'.

Does zk work properly if I would change doctype like that ?

Yes, you can try that, but ZK don't guarantee to work with 'content="IE=EmulateIE8"', you had better to use 'content="IE=Edge"' to use the real browser mode, not the simulator mode.
