Hello,

I am having problem with my dropdownlist. I set the the width to 100% and my page design is fluid. when i resize my browser it the dropdownlist width does not follow. As a result the dropdown overshoot the margin as shown on the attached image. 

I tried removing the radformdecorator and it worked just fine. However I want to be consistent on my design and continue using radformdecorator.

thanks

Hello,

RadFormDecorator is designed to work with fixed layouts only, and it cannot decorate controls that have their size set in percent values. We might support percent values in the future, however for now our suggestion is to either use fixed dimensions, or not to decorate elements with relative size.

All the best,

 I tested all other controls (grid, textbox, combobox, and a lot of other asp.net and telerik controls) and they work well with defined percent value. It is only the dropdownlist I am having problem with. Cant we have any workaround to this? it seemed like a bug than a limitation in my opinion.

Hello Arnold Castro,

The RadFormDecorator and RadDock controls are created to be used for fixed layout - their dimensions should be set in pixels.
A simple workaround for the DropDownList is to set width to 100% in the rfdSelect css class, e.g.
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title></title>
    <style type="text/css">
        .rfdSelect
        {
           width:100% !important;
        }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
    </asp:ScriptManager>
    <telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="RadFormDecorator1" runat="server" DecoratedControls="All" Skin="Black" />
    <div style="width:600px;height:200px;border:2px solid red">
        <asp:DropDownList ID="ddList1" runat="server">
            <asp:ListItem Text="Item1"></asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem Text="Item2"></asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem Text="Item3"></asp:ListItem>
        </asp:DropDownList>
    </div>
  
    </form>
</body>
</html>
Hope this helps.
