I am using the following piece of code:

 <telerik:RadFormDecorator ID="FormDecorator1" runat="server" DecoratedControls="all" EnableRoundedCorners="false"></telerik:RadFormDecorator> 

in order to update our asp .net application.  This property works great on almost all of our pages except one.  On the one page the drop down list contains around 200 pieces of data.  Therefore when the drop down arrow is pressed the entire page is filled with the drop down list.  I was wondering if there was a dropdownlistheight or something to that nature for the code mentioned above.  I found the following thread:

http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax/form-decorator/dropdownlist-height-problem-using-form-decorator.aspx

however the css "hack" did not work.  I am wondering if there was another technique or another way of fixing this problem.  I would rather not have to create a combobox for this page and would rather just use the "DecoratedControls="all" property.  

Thanks

Hi David,

Currently there is no other way to do that apart from the CSS hack - could you please let me know what exactly didn't work with it? It would be of help if you post a code for a sample page where you tried that hack along with the browser's details.
The problem with the hack is that it sets a fixed height of the dropdowns, no matter if there are 2 or 200 items in it. That is actually one of the reasons why currently there is no permanent cross-browser's solution for this issue.

All the best,

I reread the other thread that actually had the css "hack" and I noticed that the <style type="text/css"> </style> was used.  This works.  I had previously only put it in the .css file.  However putting it in the actual .aspx file it worked correctly.  Thanks
