    How to enforce the multiselect component to stay on a single line (when the user selects more elements than they fit in the width)?

    Regarding the expected "inline" behavior, this: http://www.kendoui.com/forums/kendo-ui-web/multi-select/inline-multiselect-.aspx
    seems to do the trick, but it's still not optimal because of the hardcoded size. Are there any plans to fix this?

    regards.

    Hi Hans,

    I can see that you already found the workaround proposed from a colleague of mine. As this feature is not built-in by default with Kendo UI MultiSelect, for now this is the only way to implement such functionality. 

    I would like to encourage you to submit this suggestion in our feedback forum, so it can be taken into consideration for future releases.

    Thank you for your reply.

    IMO both aspects are not missing features but bugs. All "editable" form controls are inline, and the text input field does not expend it's height when more content it's typed in it, so nor should the MultiSelect do.

    So to recap:
    # bug 1 - MultiSelect takes the entire line unlike other input form controls.
         Workaround: http://www.kendoui.com/forums/kendo-ui-web/multi-select/inline-multiselect-.aspx

    # bug 2 - MultiSelect expands vertically when more content is typed in, unlike other input form controls.
        Workaround: ??

    regards.

    Hi Hans,

    The Kendo UI MultiSelect widget indeed expands vertically when more content is typed in. This is because the widget should display all the information to the user. At the moment I cannot offer you a good workaround for this. 

    If you think that this behaviour should be supported in Kendo UI, you can submit it in our feedback forums, so it can be taken into consideration for a future release.
