    I have an issue where I create a RadWindow which contains a drop-down. The drop-down has quite a number of items, so the height of it needs be larger than the RadWindow itself. What I want is for the drop-down to show over the RadWindow and the over the window behind as well. Instead, the RadWindow creates a vertical scrollbar and the drop-down remains contained within the RadWindow.
    Does anyone know of any way to effectivly make the inner control show in front of everything else and avoid the scrolling effect?
    I have attached a file showing what the problem is - might be easier to understand!
    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Michael,

    When you display a content page in the RadWindow (i.e. NavigateUrl is set), this is a separate page, different from the parent one. That page is displayed in an IFRAME and when you show an element with size bigger than that IFRAME, the frame uses scrollbars - this behavior is not related to the RadWindow control and is expected.
    What you could do is:
    1. Use a standard dropdown instead of RadComboBox. The standard dropdown is a heavy-weight object that can be shown over IFRAMEs.
    2. Use RadWindow as a controls container. In this case the content will be in the main page and you will be able to show it in the way you want. 

    I hope this helps.
    Best wishes,
