    Hi, I have recently tried the new update (Q3) and I come to an issue.

    I use a combobox that takes all the space of the page, the skin of it is "Office2007".
    My screen resolution is 1680x1050. 
    The combo is not large enough anymore. I know that you use an image for the combo, In the old version (Q2) it used to be 2000 pixels width, in the new version it is 1000 pixels width. That is causing troubles for me because the combo is not taking all the screen anymore.

    I can understand the point of resizing the image (inscrease speed on page load), but in my situation, I'm thinking of:
    - Create a new image that is bigger (using paint or whatever).
    - Put a bit off css to override telerik's image.

    I just wonder if there is another way to do it, like a property or something?

    Ok I'm having an issue, but I love the new skin of that Office2007 combo and I think you made the right decision deducing the size of it (again, increase loading time).

    if there is no property to change it, that will be fine. I'll use my solution, I will find a way and I will post the image and the css on that thread for peoples having the same trouble.

    Waiting for your answer.

    Unfortunately, there is no other way to fix this, but to replace the image. We have outlined other possible issues in a related forum thread -- http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/aspnet-ajax/combobox/possible-breaking-changes-2012-q3.aspx.

    Here is the image in 2000px width variant.
