    when changing skins my radcombobox's are drawn with a line under them??  (see attached image)

    metro and metro touch skins are rendered properly but skins like outlook, sunset have the extra line.

    Hi Mike,

    Unfortunately I couldn't replicate the issue at my end. Please have a look into the following sample code snippet which works fine at my end.

    <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Select Skin">
    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox1" runat="server" EmptyMessage="--Select--" AutoPostBack="true"
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Sunset" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Outlook" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Metro" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="MetroTouch" />
    <telerik:RadComboBox ID="RadComboBox2" runat="server" Skin="Default">
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Item1" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Item2" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Item3" />
            <telerik:RadComboBoxItem Text="Item4" />

    protected void RadComboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadComboBoxSelectedIndexChangedEventArgs e)
        RadComboBox2.Skin = e.Text;

    Please provide your full code with CSS if it doesn't help.

    Hello, Mike.

    The distortions you are seeing are caused by one of three reasons:

    1) You have zoomed the page
    FIX: reset zoom level

    2) You are using an older versions of the controls with RadFormDecorator on the page (that's for some time now)
    FIX: upgrade to a newer version

    3) You have global styles applied for the input elements or more specifically input type text elements which break the dimensions of the combobox.
    FIX: find the styles in question and tweak them so they don't apply to RadComboBox

    In all cases, it's better to use the newest possible version.
