The RadComboBox width does not work.I do not want dropdownwidth. I want to change the width.
I have set the width to 50px but it doesnt work.
I tried Radcombobox width property outside <asp:content> and it works fine but not within <asp:content>.

Also I want
hh:mm
dropdownlist side to each other. But I cant get it in <li> tag.#
Any help is appreciated.

Hi Sucheta Patil,

I created a sample test page and tried to reproduce the issue but without success.

On my side the width of RadComboBox controls is 50px. as expected - I tested this with our latest version and with version 2009.3.1103.20. The width of dropdown lists is 50px. too – by design if the DropDownWidth property is not set, the dropdown takes the width of the RadComboBox.

Could you please explain in more details - what is the behaviour that you are trying
to achieve?  What do you mean by: "Also I want hh:mm dropdownlist side to each other"?
Thank you in advance.

Hi Kalina,
I want hh:mm dropdownlist side to each other
Means
lsthh:lstmm

After i run I should be able to enter hours and minutes in the form.
Right now they are below each other but I want to reduce the width of the combobox to fit it on the form
Can you suggest.
Thanks in advance..

Hello Sucheta Patil,

In order to decrease the space that RadComboBox controls take, you can set the Width property to lower value(for example 35px).
Additionally you can move the RequiredFieldValidator control out of the unordered list that you have placed in RadPageView. The RequiredFieldValidator control renders a hidden “<span>” tag that adds an extra space between RadComboBoxes.

Please find more details at the sample page attached.

All the best,
Kalina
