    I have a RadGrid with a GridDropDown column:

    <telerik:RadGrid ID="DGrid" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" 
        Width="100%" AllowAutomaticDeletes="True" GridLines="None" OnItemDataBound="DGrid_ItemDataBound" 
        OnNeedDataSource="DGrid_NeedDataSource" OnInsertCommand="DGrid_InsertCommand" 
        OnUpdateCommand="DGrid_UpdateCommand" OnDeleteCommand="DGrid_DeleteCommand" 
        <mastertableview commanditemdisplay="Bottom" editmode="InPlace">  
            <HeaderStyle Wrap="false" /> 
                <HeaderStyle Width="20px"></HeaderStyle> 
                <HeaderStyle Width="20px"></HeaderStyle> 
                <telerik:GridDropDownColumn DataField="Id" UniqueName="Id" 
                    ListValueField="SystemID" ListTextField="SystemName" HeaderText="D" 
                    ItemStyle-Wrap="false" ItemStyle-Font-Names="Arial" ItemStyle-Width="500px">  
                       <ItemStyle Font-Names="Arial" /> 
                <telerik:GridButtonColumn CommandName="Delete" Text="Delete" UniqueName="DeleteColumn" ButtonType="LinkButton" > 
            <Selecting AllowRowSelect="false" /> 

    My questions are:
    How do I specify that the box that holds the values in the dropdownlist needs to be X pixels wide?
    The text that shows up in the RadCombobox, how do you set the style? 

    Just not sure where to find the answers.

    You can specify the width of RadComboBox in pixels using the Unit.Pixel property and the text in RadComboBox can be styled by using the radcombo properties ForeColor, Font, Bold etc. Check out the sample code below.


     void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e) 
      if (e.Item is GridEditableItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode) 
        GridEditableItem editedItem = e.Item as GridEditableItem; 
        RadComboBox radComboBox = (RadComboBox)editedItem["GridDropDownColumn1"].Controls[0];   
        radComboBox.Width = Unit.Pixel(500); 
        radComboBox.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red; 
        radComboBox.Font.Bold = true
