    I am working on SIlverlight application using RadControls_for_Silverlight5_2013_2_0724_Dev version. We have a dynamic tab being populated based on the access level we have, using RadRibbonTab control. With in each tab we have RadRibbonGroup .

    Currently we have a issue when we change the app size, say by dragging the window. The text in the tab gets cropped off on dragging the window. Is there a way where we can keep the full text visible based on the window resize? Please see the screen shot for the cropped tab on dragging the screen.

    Hello Shilpa,

    The default behavior for the RadRibbonView when there is not enough space for its Tab headers is to start clipping them. The default minimal width of the Tabs is set to 45.  You could change that behavior by overwriting the default ItemsPanel, like follows:
                <telerikRibbonViewPrimitives:RibbonTabStripPanel MinTabWidth="200" />
    By setting the MinTabWidth property to the value you desire will force the RadRibbonTabs to take at least 200px if their DesiredSize.Width is equal or larger to that value. However if the RadRibbonTabs DesiredSize.Width is lets say 50px they will not be stretched that size.

    Kind regards,
