Bing Map v8 - Browser Compatibility & Support RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am just trying to verify browser compatibility. I understand it works on IE9+ , however, I am having trouble verifying it works in IE11 .

    Navigate to Bing's own SDK link  ( in IE 11 if possible ):

    http://www.bing.com/api/maps/sdkrelease/mapcontrol/isdk#loadMapSync+JS

    I am never seeing the map load ( yes I am on the Javascript tab ).  Any insight ?  I need to communicate effectively to customers.

    * Works in Edge and Chrome (recent versions )

    Thanks.

  • Bing Maps V8 is supported on IE11 and above. IE9 and 10 are not supported. Documentation on browser support is here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt712867.aspx

    If the sample isn't loading for you in IE11, it is likely an issue with the sample site itself than rather than the actual sample. Try pressing refresh to see if it helps. I actually do majority of my testing on IE11 and Edge while I have others on my team use other browsers to ensure that all browsers are constantly being tested. I rarely run into issues with IE11 or Edge.

  • The map control itself will load polyfills such as promises as needed on its own. I don't add anything in from my own end. Are you seeing an errors in the console? Code be a network/firewall related issue.

  • Strange, the SDK site works with Chrome, but same url doesn't work with IE 11 , even after refresh.

    Do you use anything special in your setup, like maybe a polyfill for promises,etc. on IE 11 ?

    Thanks.
