    We've recently upgraded from Q3 2010, mainly to accommodate for IE10. We've had various issues but most of the functional ones are resolved after searching in this forum. Those are like changes of visible=false to display=false. We're left with UI problem, mostly have to do with font size and RadTextBox & RadComboBox width changes, which distorted our layout.

    We uses textboxes in a lot of pages and we have our own textbox control which inherit from RadTextBox (we only override non display related attributes/parameters), which we later set WrapperCssClass in the constructor based on some advise we found in this forum. Is there any simple way we can reset the textbox and combobox to look like how they appears before in Q3 2010 without having to modify every single page? 

    We've tried to use WrapperCssClass to set all the textboxes width to auto and it appears to work in IE10, IE9/8, Firefox and Chrome, although the size seems to be smaller than before. But when we turn on Compatibility mode in IE10/9/8, the textboxes will appear bigger, and the layout distorted again. It feels like font size changes. As for RadComboBox, on some pages, it fill the width of the container and WrapperCssClass doesn't exist in RadComboBox for us to apply the similar change like RadTextBox.

    We then try to find out if this problem appears in the Live Demo, but VS2010 crashes when loading the solution. On VS2012 it does load, but we then fail to set the target framework to .Net3.5. It's either it crashed or the page throws exception about incompatible runtime version. How should I make it work in VS2010 with .Net 3.5

    Thank you

    Hi Mohd,

    Since the Q3 2011, the default width on RadInput and RadComboBox is changed to 160px, but the visual appearance is unaffected.

    Could you please sent your custom styles and project so we can help with persisting the old behavior?
