Is there any way to make the editorbox Multiline.

The problem is some of my items (in the collection) are over two lines.  When the two line item is selected the item appears in the editorbox - but only the first line appears.  Is there any way to get the editorbox to show two or more lines.

Furthermore, is it possible to show the editorbox with the picture associated with the item?


Many thanks.

Hello Ahmuser,

We support this functionality only when RadDropDownStyle is set to DropDownList mode. In this mode we support images in RadDropDownList. This property determines whether the text area at the top of the control can be edited. A setting of DropDown (which is the default setting) allows editing and the DropDownList setting shows the text area as read-only.

You should set these properties to allow multi-line text support:

this.radDropDownList1.DropDownStyle = Telerik.WinControls.RadDropDownStyle.DropDownList;
this.radDropDownList1.AutoSizeItems = true;

I hope this helps. 

Best wishes,
Peter
