Hi everybody,

I'm using a kendo dropdown list as a custom editor in grid. I wonder, is there an easy way to make the width of dropdownlist bigger then the size of the cell? I display short codes in a grid, but I have to display long names in edit mode in dropdown list. I thought about something like openning  it in front of the grid, covering the whole grid not only the container cell. But I was unable to find an example.

Hello Alexandra,

The Grid does not allow its cell content to overflow, but the list of DropDownList items can be made wider. Please check the following example:

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/editors/dropdownlist/how-to/auto-adjust-the-width

An alternative option is to use popup editing, where you will have the opportunity to use larger editor dimensions or even a custom layout via template.
