    Hi Guys

    I have class that inherits RadListBox to implement a menu.

    I am loading an image and want to display the text at the left hand side of the item (ListBox cell) and the image at the right hand end.

    "i" is a RadListBoxItem:

     i.DisplayStyle = DisplayStyle.ImageAndText;
     i.ImageAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight;
     i.TextImageRelation = TextImageRelation.TextBeforeImage;
     i.TextAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft;
     i.Image = item.Icon;


    This gives me the image straight after the text. The ImageAlignment property appears to be ignored.

    In fact the only property it seems to honor is TextImageRelation

    If I pad the text with spaces I can move the graphic across the cell, but this is too imprecise for a generic solution.
    I tried experimenting with the AutoSize and AutoSizeMode property to no avail.

    What is the best way of achieving this?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Mark Ogle,

    Thank you for writing.

    This happens because the ImageAndTextLayoutPanel inside RadListBoxItem is measured with its desired size. It's size is as big as the image and the text, and it does not take into account the fact that the parent item is much wider. You can work around this by setting the StretchHorizontally property of the layout panel like this:

    (list.Children[2] as ImageAndTextLayoutPanel).StretchHorizontally = true;

    Write again if you need further assistance.

    Kind regards,
