    I found that the Q1 2010 radTextBox and the radComboBox don't show text in ClearTypeGridFit even as I set it in "Edit UI elements" of each control (.NET 4.0 C# WinForm with VS2010). All other rad-controls work well with ClearTypeGridFit.

    Funny enough, the radComboBox shows all items from the dropdown list in ClearTypeGridFit, but when I select an item its text is drawn without any font smoothing again.

    Is there a trick to force these two resistant controls to show text in ClearTypeGridFit ?

    Hello Pummelchen,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    RadTextBox and RadComboBox actually wrap the .NET TextBox control and add custom border and fill. Standard .NET TextBox uses the current system setting for ClearType and this behavior cannot be modified.

    I hope this information is useful. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.
