    RadControls for WinForms Q2 2010 / 2010.2.10.071

    I am trying to set the Font for the list elements of a drop down list. I am able to set the font using the Properties window but the setting does not effect the list elements when the application is run. At run time, the application creates an array of RadListDataItem which is used as the data source. I have also tried setting the Font property of the individual RadListDataItems.

    Setting the font for the DropDownList works correctly for the text box associated with the list.

    Hi Scott Webber,

    Thank you for reporting this issue.

    This will be fixed in the upcoming service pack. The problem is that the synchronization code that maps the properties between the logical and visual items sets the wrong value priority to the visual items. Your Telerik points have been updated.

    Write again if you have other questions.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team

    Hello Nino,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can easily set the font of the drop down list. You just have to subscribe to VisualListItemFormatting event and there you can change the whole appearance of the menu:
    Font myFont = new Font("Segoe UI", 14, FontStyle.Bold);
    private void radDropDownList1_VisualListItemFormatting(object sender, VisualItemFormattingEventArgs args)
         args.VisualItem.Font = myFont;

    Here is a helpful article you may refer to: Customizing drop down list items appearance.

    Hope that helps.
