    I have a RadToolstrip that contains multiple RadComboBoxElements.

    I've resized the comboboxelements to larger (than default) width to fully display the text within it. Although the combobox is resized to the expected width, the embedded textbox is not resized. Thus the text is clipped.

    I noticed that someone else on the forums (in 2007) noticed the same behaviour and the advice was to change the width of both minSize and maxSize. I've done this but didn't see any change to the behaviour.

    I'm using the 2008 Q3 version.

    To reproduce
    1.create a simple winforms project
    2. add a radtoolstrip (i docked it to top)
    3. add a radcomboboxelement and change minsize, maxsize widths to 150.
    4. run program

    You'll see the default name radComboBoxElement1 is clipped

    Any suggestions?

    Hello Loy Chan,

    Thank you the question.

    Currently, in order to get the TextBoxItem expanded, you should set its MinSize as well. Please refer to the following code snippet:
    this.radComboBoxElement1.MinSize = new Size(150, 0);  
    this.radComboBoxElement1.TextBoxElement.Children[0].MinSize = new Size(this.radComboBoxElement1.Size.Width - 22, 0); 

    I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    All the best,
