How do I set the width of a CommandBarTextBox control?  It appears to reset itself to 60 of I change Size or Bounds in the designer, and if I set AutoSize to false all of the controls get mashed together and the layout looks atrocious.  What am I missing?

Thanks.

Hello Chris Ward,

Thank you for writing.

The MinSize property sets the size of a RadTextBoxElement:
this.commandBarTextBox1.MinSize = new Size(200, 0);

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.

I tried setting the MinSize property in the code:

Text1.MinSize = new Size(30, 0);
Text2.MinSize = new Size(30, 0);

As a matter of fact I've tried setting all size-related assignable properties:

Text1.Size = new Size(30, 22);
Text1.DefaultSize = new Size(30, 22);
Text1.MaxSize = new Size(30, 22);
Text1.MinSize = new Size(30, 22);
Text1.SetBounds(0, 0, 30, 22);

The text boxes are still 60 pixels wide when the form loads.  Sometimes they cause strange artifacts with, or completely render on top of, nearby controls.  Try creating a RadCommandBar, placing a CommandBarTextBox in it, and resizing it for yourself.

Hello Chris,

Thank you for clarifying your scenario.

Please try setting the MinSize property of the TextBoxElement. Here is a sample snippet:
this.commandBarTextBox1.TextBoxElement.MinSize = new Size(20, 0);

I hope this helps. Let me know if you encounter further issues.
