We have a number of RADComboBox controls that have a large number of items in them.  So many that in some cases the drop down will drop up.  This usually results in the list going out of the viewable area of the browser (IE7).  Within these lists we allow the user to filter what they want to see on text that contains what they type ('Filter="Contains"').  When they've typed in a couple of characters the drop up list filters, but the matching values are all the way at the top of the drop up area and out of the viewable area of the browser.

Is there a way to have the dropdown portion auto resize on when the filter occurs?  Or possibly have the matching selection be vertically aligned to the bottom so that when the drop up occurs they show just above the control on the page.  For now the user just see a white area that's blank unless they can scroll up without having the drop up area go away (w/ mousewheel).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Pat Schmidt,

RadComboBox has "Screen boundary detection" option and the drop-down expands automatically to the opposite direction when necessary to prevent screen boundaries from being crossed.

You can limit the RadComboBox dropdown height you can use the “Height” or “MaxHeight” property and set them to values that you prefer.
Feel free to contact us if the issue persists.
