    Using 2012.1.306 dll's the selected text(not in the drop-down list) in the radcombobox is cut off if it is longer than 150px in ie7 only. This behavior is also observed on this site's demo section. More reasons to stick with the 2011.3 build...

    Hello,

    Check the following help documentation which explains how to set the caret position in IE when selected text is long.
    Set caret position at the beginning of the input in IE, when the text of the selected item is too long.

    Hello,

    We are using the Q1 2012 SP1 and we also have this text cutoff issue in IE7. I tried using the javscript function mentioned but it didn;t fix the issue. Could you please let me know if you have any workaround for IE7.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Sonith

    Hello MATHIEU,

    The issue that you describe sounds familiar.
    In case you use RadFormDecorator - please exclude the RadComboBox form the decorated controls.
    Here you can find more details about decorated controls.

    Thanks Kalina.

    I'm using RadFormDecorator and currently I have the DecoratedControls set to All. After reviewing the link mentioned, I changed it to None and I dynamically added the controls and excluded the RadcomboBox. Now it works fine.

    code I added is mentioned below:
    private void DecorateForm()
    {
                radFormDeco.DecoratedControls = FormDecoratorDecoratedControls.None;
                radFormDeco.DecoratedControls |= (FormDecoratorDecoratedControls)Enum.Parse(typeof(FormDecoratorDecoratedControls), "Buttons");
                radFormDeco.DecoratedControls |= (FormDecoratorDecoratedControls)Enum.Parse(typeof(FormDecoratorDecoratedControls), "Textarea");
            }

    Thanks & Regards,
    Sonith

    I have the same issue with IE7. Thanks for providing this code.
    For IE8, it works fine without using this code.

    Mathieu,
    Is this IE7 issue?
