Hi,
is there a way to increase the width of the FormatStripper drop down menu? German text is too long and causes line breaks. Width is set to 200px in the style attribute and I can't find a way to change that programmatically.

Hi Rumen,

the line break problem is somehow related to the doctype. If I specify a DTD there are no line breaks anymore, but part of the text is still hidden. 

Setting the attributes as shown in the example doesn't seem to work with the FormatStripper tool. Did it like this:

        foreach(EditorToolGroup group in RadEditor1.Tools) {  
            EditorTool tool = group.FindTool("FormatStripper");  
            if(tool != null) {  
                tool.Attributes["popupwidth"] = "300px";  
            }  
        } 

For the time being I solved the problem by reducing the font size, but if you have another idea how to set the width, it would be appreciated :)

Hi Ralf,

The RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX are designed to work in XHTML compliant pages and there might be some visual glitches when no doctype is present on the page. Could you please, make sure that the doctype below is set in the page with the editor:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

You can also resize the dropdowns with the following css class but please note that it will be applied to all dropdowns:

    <style type="text/css">
    .rade_dropDownBody
    {
        width: 250px !important;
    }
    </style>

Another way is by shorten the localization strings of this tool available in the resx localization files.
