Hi there,

I am attempting to get border-radius to work in ie and it just doesn't seem to want to. I have the htc file and css but nothing.

I have placed the htc file in the images folder and set the url to that location.

It works perfectly in firefox and chrome

Thanks for the help.

IE 8 does not support the HTC methods as previous versions did and does not yet support the rounded-corner calls in CSS.  The best alternative is to use JQuery, such as this plugin: http://www.malsup.com/jquery/corner/

While testing put the htc file in the same folder where the css is. Change the rounded-corners class to

.rounded-corners {
      -moz-border-radius: 20px;
      -webkit-border-radius: 20px;
      -khtml-border-radius: 20px;
      border-radius: 20px;
      behavior:url(border-radius.htc);
      background-color: #FF0;
      height: 100%;
      width: 100%;
      position: absolute;
      border: 5px double #F63;
}

Thanks to both for responding.

chapmanjw - thanks for the link but I'm not that advanced and don't know how to implement the js plug in, also..... read comments from people saying the htc does work in ie8.

amit_g - did as you suggested and still no rounding.

For using JQuery, simply goto www.jquery.com and there are some quick tutorials there on how it works.

While I did not use the jquery method, and in light of no other valid workable solutions it seems ie 8 does not support htc and ie 9 isn't out yet sooo......
