Hi there,

I can't seem to get a datepicker in a radhostitem (added to a toolstrip programmatically) to sit in line with the other controls on the toolstrip.

rtsi_Context is a RadToolStripItem

My code looks like this:-

    RadDateTimePicker dtPicker = new RadDateTimePicker();
            dtPicker.Name = "dtPicker";
            dtPicker.ThemeName = "Office2007Blue";
            RadHostItem hostItem = new RadHostItem(dtPicker);
            hostItem.MinSize = new Size(150, 10);
            hostItem.MaxSize = new Size(150, 10);
            //Add the item to the context menu
            this.rtsi_Context.Items.Add(hostItem);
            //Save a reference for later use.
            rdtp_Rundate = dtPicker;
            rdtp_Rundate.ValueChanged += new EventHandler(rdtp_Rundate_ValueChanged);

I tried setting various MinSize attributes for the Toolstrip and its various components- other controls aligned themselves appropriately but the radhostitem / datetimepicker appeared "stuck" to the bottom of the RadToolStrip container.

I put the above code into a button click handler just to make sure that I wasn't attempting to add the control before the toolstrip was initialized correctly, but with the same results.

Many thanks,
Mike Renwick

Hello Mike,

Thank you for writing. I have to admit that we have some layout issues with the current version of RadToolStrip, because it still uses the old layout system. The good news is that we are working on implementing new layouts in the next versions of RadToolStrip, that should address the issues like this. Currently, I have managed to find a work-around by set the Min and Max size for the DateTimePicker element and the HostItem. After that I use PositionOffset property of HostedItem to line up the DateTimePicker with other controls. Please, review the code-block below:

RadDateTimePicker datePicker = new RadDateTimePicker();  
datePicker.MinimumSize = new Size(150, 19);  
datePicker.MaximumSize = new Size(150, 19);  
 
hostItem = new RadHostItem(datePicker);  
hostItem.MinSize = new Size(150, 14);  
hostItem.MaxSize = new Size(150, 14);            
 
this.radToolStripItem1.Items.Add(hostItem);  
hostItem.PositionOffset = new SizeF(0, -3); 

I hope this helps. Do not hesitate to contact me again if you have other questions.

All the best,
