    Hi there, is there a way to change the direction that the dropdownlist expands, ie. from down to up? If not, can I make a feature request?

    Thanks
    Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    We will include such a property in our next official release - Q2 2013. It will be called ExpandDirection and will have two values - Up/Down

    This is a nice feature, however, the dropdown list ought to detect screen boundaries and set its own expand direction accordingly if there isn't enough space (just like the rad combo box does). I have a dropdownlist in an edittemplate of a grid column which resides in some nested splitters, and a RadWindow. The dropdown lists do not detect the boundary of the Rad window and the dropdowns content cannot be seen. I am using controls version 2016.1.113.40

    Hi,

    With the DropDownList control we split up the two functionalities - detecting the edge of the screen, and choosing the direction based on the available space. In the version you are using the properties are already implemented:
    EnableDirectionDetection="true" 
    EnableScreenBoundaryDetection="true"

    We chose to leave the DirectionDetection disabled by default so that we don't break the existing behavior for people using the DropDownList.

    Try setting the EnableDirectionDetection to true for the DropDownList in your template and it should work as expected.
