                    <telerik:radcombobox id="PageSize" runat="server" width="40px" skin="Office2007">  
                        <items> 
                            <telerik:radcomboboxitem value="25" text="25" /> 
                            <telerik:radcomboboxitem value="50" text="50" /> 
                            <telerik:radcomboboxitem value="100" text="100" /> 
                            <telerik:radcomboboxitem value="200" text="200" /> 
                        </items> 
                    </telerik:radcombobox> 
 

This combobox when expanded shows scrollbars and the horizontal scrollbar is hiding last choice.
Is it possible to disable scrollbars without changing width of the combobox?

Thanks,
Grisha

Hi Grisha,

I suggest that you use the DropDownWidth property so that the drop-down can accommodate event the largest item in the list.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

The RadCOntrols version used to auto size to the widest item. I have noticed that the Prometheus defaults to a width of 160px and will not resize. Instead it uses the scrollbars if a drop down item exceeds the width specified.

I must say I prefer the old behaviour which is also how the standard .net drop down list works. If no width is specified then it will expand to the width of the widest item.

Is this by design or is it a bug?

Hello Stuart,

Unfortunately, this behavior is by design. Still, I have logged your request in our ToDo list and we'll do our best to include this feature in the next version of the control.

Hi,

I also have the requirement to have the dropdownlist width size to the widest item. Can you tell me if this feature will be in the 2008 Prometheus April release please, or if there is a workaround? otherwise I will have to use the "Non-Prometheus" version which will change my architecture a bit.

kind regards,

Richard

Hi Richard,

We tried to implement variable width of the dropdown for the Prometheus version of the control, but unfortunately it breaks other functionalities of the control. In a word, this feature will not be implemented in the RadComboBox Prometheus.

Please excuse us for the inconvenience we might have caused you.

Best wishes,
Paul
