I have a button inside the grid. From that button I want to open a window that has a combo box in it.
After the user selects a value from the combo i want the control to return to the button and do further processing based on the value returned from the window.

So far I have been able to open a window containing a combo box. However my combo box looks like a textbox with a select keyword next to it.
After I click on my combo box I get the list of items from the database but it is displayed as a list with bullets and I am not able select any value.

It doesn't look like a combo box.

please help.

Below is my code on the modal dialog page that contains the combo box:

<

form id="form1" runat="server">

<telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">

</telerik:RadScriptManager>

<div>
<telerik:RadComboBox ID="ddlReportingPeriodEndDate" runat="server" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" EnableLoadOnDemand="false" AppendDataBoundItems="false" LoadingMessage="Loading dates..." MarkFirstMatch="True" ToolTip="Select report period end date" AllowCustomText="false" CssClass="editfield" Width="110px">
</telerik:RadComboBox>

</div>

</form>

My Code to cal the window is:

function

ShowDialogPopup()

{

var oWnd = radopen("NewDialog.aspx");

}

which is called from the onclientclick event in the button.

Hello newbie,

This problem is not related to the RadWindow control - your combobox will look the same no matter if it is displayed in a RadWindow or not. I see that you have set EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" in your RadComboBox declaration - in such case you need to provide a custom skin for the RadComboBox or to set this property to true.

thanks for pointing that out.
I tried setting the EnableEmbeddedSkins to true and i also tried giving a custom skin with the property set to false.
But in both cases the combobox still displays the same.

However removing it completely shows it right.
