    I have a strange problem with RadCombobox not displaying / working properly.
    I am using the latest version of the controls, in Visual Studio 2010, .Net 3.5
    I am using the standard Vista skin (I was using a custom skin, but get the same problem)

    The drop-down button is not correct - It shows 'Select' text instead of the arrow, and when I open the drop down, the list of items is not confined to the length of the drop down box. Also the drop down box background does not always display.
    It will also not let me select any items that are within the bounds of the drop-down, but I can select one of the 'overflowed' items OK

    Here is the markup:
    <div style="position: absolute; left: 410px; top: 300px;">
      <telerik:RadComboBox ID="ReasonCombo" Runat="server" Width="180px"
        EnableTextSelection="False" EnableItemCaching="True" MaxHeight="250px"
        Skin="Vista" EnableEmbeddedSkins="True">

    Pretty simple, and nothing I havn't got working in other projects (although the only one is VS 2010 and with this version of RadControls)

    Attached is a an image of how it looks.

    All help appreciated.

    Hello Paul,

    Your skin is not loaded at all for some reason. Could you please send us a live url or a sample project where the issue can be observed? Thanks

    Unfortunately I can't give you a live URL, as it is all Intranet based, and I can't send you the actual files because of dependencies on databases and other things.

    I have managed to solve the problem however, by moving the combo box to earlier in the markup. There was obviously something in the markup that was interfering with it, but all other controls look and work perfectly.
