    Hello,

    This is no specific to telerik, but may be I could get some answer to my question here.
    My Radcombobox is in a small iFrame and when I try to expand it, it expands but behind the iframe windows, is it pssible to have it expanding on top of surrounding window ?

    Hello Christian Surieux,

    RadComboBox cannot overlay IFRAME elements. This is the reason why it expands behind the iframe.

    We hope this is not a major show stopper for you.

    Hello Christian,

    RadComboBox does not support this functionality. When RadComboBox is inside iframe,its dropdown cannot be expanded over the iframe.

    Hi,
                 I have the same issue. I have the RadComboBox in an iFrame. I am using 2013 version of Telerik, is it supported NOW ? If not, do you have any alternatives like RadAutoComplete works with iFrame.
                I am upgrading my html dropdown with RadComboBox, html dropdown works inside an iFrame and RadComboBox does not, It is a blocking issue for me. Looking forward to you.Thanks,

    Regards,

    Hi Nitin,

    In contrast to the DropDownList the RadComboBox control can not show outside the IFRAME.The main cause for this is the different rendering of the controls that is handled differently by the browser. For instance, the dropdown of the combo box is a div with an ul inside. You can try adding this to a simple page inside a simple iframe and change its position - it will hide but will not go out of the iframe. This is the way browsers handle this scenario and we cannot avoid this. What we have done is to add edge detection for the dropdown element of the combo box that you can enable or disable.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Nitin,

    You can use the EnableScreenBoundaryDetection="true" property of the RadComboBox control that will make the dropdown expands to the direction where more space is estimated to be available.

    All the best,
