    How do you set the width of a GridDropDownListColumnEditor on the server. 

    I have a method tied to OnCreateColumnEditor called "CreateEditor".  It looks something like this

        protected void CreateEditor(object sender, GridCreateColumnEditorEventArgs e)
     GridDropDownListColumnEditor operatorEditor = e.ColumnEditor as GridDropDownListColumnEditor;
    operatorEditor.ComboBoxControl.DropDownWidth = Unit.Pixel(50);

    But the width never gets changed to 50px.  It is a lot longer than that.

    Hello Ranro,

    Try the following code snippet in the ItemDataBound.

    protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e)
      if (e.Item is GridEditableItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode)
           GridEditableItem editItem = (GridEditableItem)e.Item;
           GridDropDownListColumnEditor dropDownEditor = (GridDropDownListColumnEditor)editItem.EditManager.GetColumnEditor("Dropdown1");
           dropDownEditor.ComboBoxControl.Width = Unit.Pixel(20);

    Also make sure that your DropDownControlType is RadCombobox.
