In responsive design the DropDownTree control is usually configured with width=100%
I wonder how in this case to make the dropdown width the same as the control width to make it responsive too?

Hi miksh,

Try to customize the class "rddtSlide" for changing the width of the DropDown as follows.

CSS:
.rddtSlide
{
    width: 99% !important;
}

Let me know if you have any concern.

Thanks ,
Princy.

Thanks Princy but it doesn't work - the dropdown width expands to full window width and even goes beyond window.

Ho miksh,

By setting the width of 'rddtSlide' as 99%, it will take the width of the RadDropDownTree and it will take the 99% of the width mentioned in the RadDropDownTree. Please have a look into the sample code snippet which works fine at my end.

ASPX:

<telerik:RadDropDownTree ID="rdroptreeEmployees" runat="server" DataFieldID="EmployeeID" Width="25%" DataFieldParentID="ReportsTo" DataSourceID="sqldsEmployees" DataTextField="FirstName">
</telerik:RadDropDownTree>

CSS:
.rddtSlide
{
    width: 99% !important;
}

Thanks ,
Princy.

Indeed, it works fine on a test page which have the only those controls. However, in real website scenario with 3rd party libraries like Bootstrap & custom css (which we have) that most likely won't work as the dropdown <div> with absolute positioning is created in the body container which might have different sizing to compare with the box sizing where the control is located so the width value in percentage format won't work.
Try this code

‚Äč
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" %>
 
<!DOCTYPE html>
<head runat="server">
    <style>
        .rddtSlide {
            width: 99% !important;
        }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <telerik:RadScriptManager runat="server"></telerik:RadScriptManager>
 
        <div>
            <h2>Works fine</h2>
            <telerik:RadDropDownTree ID="rdroptreeEmployees" runat="server"
                Width="25%" RenderMode="Classic"
                DataFieldID="EmployeeID"
                DataFieldParentID="ReportsTo"
                DataSourceID="sqldsEmployees" DataTextField="FirstName">
            </telerik:RadDropDownTree>
 
 
            <telerik:RadDropDownTree ID="RadDropDownTree1" runat="server"
                Width="25%" RenderMode="Lightweight"
                DataFieldID="EmployeeID"
                DataFieldParentID="ReportsTo"
                DataSourceID="sqldsEmployees" DataTextField="FirstName">
            </telerik:RadDropDownTree>
 
        </div>
 
        <div style="width: 600px;">
            <h2>Does not work</h2>
            <telerik:RadDropDownTree ID="RadDropDownTree2" runat="server"
                Width="25%" RenderMode="Classic"
                DataFieldID="EmployeeID"
                DataFieldParentID="ReportsTo"
                DataSourceID="sqldsEmployees" DataTextField="FirstName">
            </telerik:RadDropDownTree>
 
 
            <telerik:RadDropDownTree ID="RadDropDownTree3" runat="server"
                Width="25%" RenderMode="Lightweight"
                DataFieldID="EmployeeID"
                DataFieldParentID="ReportsTo"
                DataSourceID="sqldsEmployees" DataTextField="FirstName">
            </telerik:RadDropDownTree>
 
        </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Hello Michael,

The width of the RadDropDownTree drop down can be expanded to fit the related element only by javascript. The reason for that is that the drop down is always rendered on top of the <form> tag.
Please find attached a sample page, where we had set the width of the drop down in the function that is subscribed to the OnClientDropDownOpening handler.

Regards,
Magdalena
