    I have two questions on the drop down menu. First one should be easier, do you have an EnableAutoScroll as in the RadMenu? I have a drop down that can go beyond the window limits and it would be very useful to have the scroll as there is in the menu.

    The second one is a bit more complicated. My drop down is constructed on the client side, and it is based on adding items. However, I noticed that whenever I add first a short text item then a long text item, the long text gets wrapped into two lines or cutoff if I use nowrap. Is there a way to adjust the width of the drop down menu to fit all item texts?

    Hello Eduardo,

    Scrolling of the dropdown items can be achieved by setting the DropDownHeight property. For example:

    <telerik:RadToolBarDropDown runat="server" DropDownHeight="200px" Text="DropDown 0">

    The second problem turned out to be a bug with RadToolBar. I have logged it and we will try to fix it shortly.

    Hello Peter,

    Looks like we ran into the same problem with the ToolBarSplitButton: is a short-text item is added first, the long-text item added afterwards gets wrapped.  Just wondering if this is still a bug or if there's a fix that I can apply.

    Thank you very much,

    Hi Dasha,

    You can use jQuery to set the width for items with longer text:
