    Hi,

    I have been looking for: (sorry - still new in here)

    How do I change the dropdown animation for the combobox.

    Instead of the slidedown - I would like the fade in and out like on the demo page.

    Going from Q2 2009.2 812 -> Q3 2009.3.1019.1030
    Changed the animation from a slide down/up to a Fade in/out

    Is it possible to select the animation type ?

    Hi Lars,

    Unfortunately RadComboBox does not allow changing its dropdown animation. In Q3 Beta there is a bug in the control that prevents us from using slide animation, hence we switched to fade. I hope that we will be able to find a solution by Q3 and revert to slide again. I will add this feature to the product backlog and we will consider it when planning the upcoming release.

    Best wishes,

    The slide of the RadComboBox is way to slow - thats why I prefer the fade in/out.
    Please give me the possibility to choose.

    We will add properties for configuring the animation speed and probably the easing function to be used.

    Hi Telerik,

    Is there any indication to when this feature will be delivered, I would like to switch off animation all together, it is just too slow for a business application.

    Thanks,

    Anton

    Hello Anton,

    I already answered your support ticket, but I will paste my answer here in case someone else has the same question:
    You can completely turn off the animations in RadComboBox (as in most of the Telerik controls) by setting the AnimationManager.IsAnimationEnabled attached property:

    <telerik:RadComboBox telerik:AnimationManager.IsAnimationEnabled="false" ... />

    There is also a property of AnimationManager that completely disables the animations across the application (should be set somewhere in the code-behind, for example in App.xaml.cs):
    AnimationManager.IsGlobalAnimationEnabled=false;

    In addition, you could customize the animations' spped and easings of the controls that support Telerik AnimationManager by attaching an AnimationSelector. You could see how it's done in our control styles.

    Best wishes,
