rad notification does not show in IE8
IE. Version 8.0.6001.18702.xpsp_sp3_gdr.101209-1647
Telerik Version: 2012.2.912.40

Rad Notification control does not display on IE8. 

This control is being used to notify the user of a Session Timeout and provide the option to refresh.

Notable Items: 
1. No Javascript Errors on page. 
2. Z index is appropriate
3. X and Y is appropriate. 
4. debugging in javascript console, I can alert the control it returns instance [object]. however executing the "show()" method does nothing.
5. Javascript timer still executes on page and eventually kills the session but does not show popup.
6. Functions properly in other browsers, IE9,10, chrome etc... My requirement is IE8.

<telerik:RadNotification ID="RadNotification1" runat="server" OnClientShowing="OnClientShowing" LoadContentOn="PageLoad" 
    Position="Center" Title="Session Expiring" TitleIcon="" nableRoundedCorners="true" 
    ShowCloseButton="false" AutoCloseDelay="0">

Hello Colin,

I've tried to replicate the issue you are experiencing with RadNotification in IE8 but no avail. Could you please try to reproduce the problem on some of our online demos e.g.
If you are still experiencing problems with that issue please try to isolate it in a simple, fully runnable project according to your configuration ( which will allow us to examine it locally on our side.
