Referring to forum append: http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax/grid/gridhtmleditorcolumn---how-to-control-size-in-edit-form.aspx
I'm still learning the grid.  I see how the size of the actual editing control (either the GridHtmlEditorColumn itself or a custom) can be controled.

What I'd like to know is if there's a way to control the area of the surface on which the editor itself opens.

What I mean is, if for example I set the editor height to 600 pixels given the technique outlined above, the editor overflows the bounds of the entire grid.  Under some conditions it could obscure other controls.

Anyway to control this?

Hi Boris,

You can use different EditFrom like the PopUp Edit Form to show the edit controls:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/dataediting/popupeditform/defaultcs.aspx
In this case the edit form can be larger than the grid itself without breaking the layout.

All the best,

Actually I think this question is no longer relevant.  Now that I've done a bit, it looks to me like for most of my practical work I'll need to develop FormTemplate popups.  (i.e. control the size, control the layout, etc...)

(I suspect the answer is no but I have to ask: Is there anyway to make a popup itself resizable?)

Hello Boris,

Yes, it can be resizable, see this demo:

Kind regards,

Actually I was thinking in terms of the basic default popup.  This looks like a different method. 
(But the overall popup is still auto-generated?)

I'll have to give this a try.  Thanks!
