    By default every item text gets wrapped if its longer than width of RadListBox.
    How to set width of RadListBox dynamically based on text of item. Basically I want to expand width of RadListBox, without wrapping text of item.
    In below example, 3rd item gets wrapped automatically. I want to expand RadListBox in a way that it can fully accommodate 3rd item without wrapping or scroll bar.
            runat="server" ID="RadListBoxSource"
                <telerik:RadListBoxItem Text="China" Value="1"/>
                <telerik:RadListBoxItem Text="Egypt" Value="1"/>
                <telerik:RadListBoxItem Text="England England England England England England England England England" Value="1"/>
                <telerik:RadListBoxItem Text="France" Value="1"/>

    Appreciate any help.

    Hi Paresh,

    You can do that simply by adding the following CSS:
        width:auto !important;

    If you use some skin, change the selector, so that instead of Default it says the skin name. For instance, if you use the Forest skin, it should look like:
        width:auto !important;
