    I'm trying to figure out how to style DropDownList objects and MultiColumnComboBox objects such that they appear the same on a form.  Understandably, they look different when they're activated / expanded - but there should be some means of styling them such that they don't look like radically different controls when they're idle.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for writing.

    Currently, the RadMultiColumnComboBox has the same theme as RadComboBox. From the next version, however, the RadComboBox will be removed from our controls suite and the RadMultiColumnComboBox will have its own theme and will be available for theming in the VisualStyleBuilder. So until our next release you will have to style the RadComboBox in order to change the look of the RadMultiColumnComboBox. 

    I hope this will be useful for you. Should you have further questions, feel free to write back.
