    Is there any reason why the extra input elements (automatically added) on a simple textbox has the rather long style "visibility:hidden; margin:-18px; ...." when a simple "display:none" would to the trick? The problem is, that "visibility:hidden" will cause the browser to layout - and in my case create some funky forms in some browsers - where "display:none" will not cause layout.. And if the input is never used for display (is it?), why not input:hidden just then.. Css: ".rdfd_ { display: none; }" hacks this for now..

    And why are there added 3 extra form fields for one textbox field - what are they used for? Seems rather hefty...

    Hi Anders,

    We do not use display:none, because it will break callout extenders and similar controls, which rely on positioning with regard to the RadInput client object element (which is not seen by the user).

    If you are not using such tools, you can add .rdfd_{display:none} safely.
