  • CSS3 support.

    When the WebCombo control is hosted in pages that use HTML5 doc type, it will automatically enable CSS3 to deliver better visual effects and consistent results across all modern browsers. The CSS3 adoption also increases performance in overall due to the reduced HTML output. This is possible because certain markups are no longer required in the rendering which makes the WebCombo output even more compact.

    The following features have been enhanced to use CSS3:
    • Round Corner Edges
    • ResultBox Drop Shadow
    • ResultBox Rendering

WebCombo 6 continues to support backward compatibility with HTML4 and XHTML doc type. This means that you can upgrade your existing projects to WebCombo 6 without any additional efforts.
