    I like how the RadTextBox has the Label property that automatically creates and associates a label with the Text Box.  Unfortunately the control set is not consistent.  RadComboBox does not have such a property.  I am sure that there are other controls that could also benefit from having a consistent API set.

    Could we get Telerik to add the Label property to the RadComboBox as well as to other controls that it makes sense to add it to?

    In my years of experience the API sets that have a consistent set of properties and usage are always the best and most used.  This is because we already have enough going through our heads.  I don't want to learn another set of calls for every different control in an API toolkit.

    I agree!  I just spent time setting up a form using the label property, then I got to a combo box and I'll have to go back and change everything else since it doesn't have one.   Did anyone from Telerik reply?

    Hi guys,

    We already added this property in our ToDo list for RadComboBox and I hope we will manage to add it to the control soon.
    We prepared a simple article on how to associate a label with RadComboBox.

    Your feedback is always appreciated.

    Sincerely yours,

    Could you provide an example of how to 'Skin' this label. That is the main feature I want that is applied automatically with the RadInput controls when a Label is set.

    Hello Lourein,

    You can set LabelCssClass property of the RadComboBox and apply custom style to the label.

    Yana,

    I am using RadControls version 2009.2.826.20. There is no LabelCssClass property for RadComboBox - is this a feature added in subsequent versions?

    Unfortunately I am not in a position to upgrade this particular application to a later version due to time constraints - I have attempted to do this and there were some issues with changes in the way some controls are rendered and skinned that would require extra time to iron out that is not available.

    Hi Lourein,

    I'm afraid that you're using too old version of the controls, Label property is available since Q1 2010 release (2010.1.309).

    Hi Antonio Avanic,

    The label renders on the same line with the RadComboBox as you can see in this demo.

    Do you have some custom CSS that may be causing the misaligning on your side?

    All the best,
