We cannot reproduce this issue. RadComboBox successfully resizes its dropdown list based on the number of combo items added. Attaching the sample page I used for testing. I populate the combo items on the client in the combo's own client Load event. Even though the event is different, the approach is the same. Have a look and let me know if you are able to reproduce this issue in the test page.
