Disparities between the control size and the size of the area where text can be entered arise when AutoSize
is set to false
. However, this is a mode that is not to be used in typical scenarios. It's meant to be used only in very special cases, in combination with other settings. This is why we generally recommend against its use.
If you wish to use RadTextBox
the way you use the Microsoft textbox control, set AutoSize
set to true
. When Multiline
is set false
you can achieve additional control over the appearance using vertical Paddings (top and bottom). This way you will have both the automatic calculation of height depending on the Font and horizontally stretchable input text area (just as in Microsoft's TextBox).
Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. We need to provide more clarity in certain aspects of use of our controls, and I hope this clarifies the issue. If you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
