Hi,

When using a CommandBarDropDownButton and having two menu items, the sizing appears to be off (see attached image) and there is a lot of extra padding at the bottom.  This works fine with 3 or more menu items.  Is there a way to correct this?

Thank you.

Hello David A,

Thank you for your question.

This is a known issue of CommandBarDropDownButton which will be addressed in the next major release. For the time being, I can suggest the following workaround:

public class MyCommandBarDropDownButton : CommandBarDropDownButton
{
    public MyCommandBarDropDownButton()
    {
        this.arrowButton.Arrow.ForeColor = Color.FromArgb(255, 21 ,66, 139);
    }
 
    public override void ShowDropdown()
    {
        RadControl parentControl = (this.ElementTree.Control as RadControl);
        if (parentControl != null)
        {
            dropDownMenu.ThemeName = parentControl.ThemeName;
        }
 
        dropDownMenu.Show(this, 0, this.Size.Height);
    }
 
    protected override Type ThemeEffectiveType
    {
        get
        {
            return typeof(CommandBarDropDownButton);
        }
    }
}

I hope this is helpful. Feel free to ask if you have any additional questions.

All the best,
