Allowing the control to auto size, and using a watermark that is longer than the size of the empty control causes a slight shift in the view of the open control on second opening.
(i.e. Open control, close it, open again without changing focus.)
It appears that the watermark is re-displayed after the control is opened, and this causes the drop down part of the control to shift with the button.

Is there anything that can be done about this easily, as our watermarks are coming from data, and so we cannot know the length of them?

Hi Roy Graham,

Defining an explicit width(250 for instance) will prevent shifting the control itself.

Kind regards,

Hi,
Is there a solution for scenarios where the watermark is determined by data, where a fixed width cannot be used?
Many thanks,
Mike

Hello Graham,

Use a MinWidth large enough to present the watermark text. Maybe we should set opacity = 0 instead of visibility = collapsed on the watermark so the control does not bounce back and forth when you focus / unfocus empty RadWatermarkTextBox. Yet the MinWidth is pretty good workaround.
