On one of my pages I've got a databound RadComboBox holding 30 or so items.  It expands upward to the top of the window.  This is a problem because it passes through a RadMenu and for some reason passes behind the menu - so the third and fourth items in the list aren't selectable because the RadMenu is in front of them.

So, is there any way to do any of the following:
-Set the max length of the drop down, in pixels or number of items displayed or whatever else?
-Force the combobox to expand downward?
-Get the drop down to be in front of the radmenu instead of the other way around?

Hello Chris,

Yes, you can do all of these:
- Use the Height attribute to set the height of the drop down.
- Set EnableScreenBoundaryDetection="false" to force the RadComboBox drop down to expand downwards.
- You can tweak the zIndex of the RadMenu and RadComboBox to change the Z stacking.

Kind regards,

Thank you so much for replying. Unfortunately the aplication is Intranet and won't be able to share it. But I did some research and was able to fix the issue using the 'zIndex property'.
