Issue:

When using IE 11 and Jasper Reports 6.3 either the login button is grayed out or once you are logged in the page formatting looks incorrect.

Cause:

This is due to a setting on the Jasper server

Resolution:

Force the Edge mode for IE by modifying the following section in the <Tomcat Install Directory>/WEBAPPS/JASPERSERVER-PRO/WEB-INF/decorators/decorator.jsp file on the JasperSoft Server: 

 

<!-- 

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8"/> 

--> 

Uncomment this section, and then set content to "IE=Edge" instead of "IE=8". 

 

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge"/>
