    I'm currently creating a gui containing both rad textbox controls and rad combobox controls.

    Since the combobox control does not have the same height as the textbox controls, lining them up is hard and makes the application look messy.

    If you place them next to each other you will see what i meen :)
    The text inside the controls is also not at the same height :(

    Hi Per,

    The ComboBox and TextBox appear with different size/font and layout settings because of their built-in themes. There is a workaround for this, however I suggest you to wait for couple of weeks and try out the upcoming release where we have corrected these issues.

    Here is the simplest workaround:

    this.radComboBox1.ComboBoxElement.TextBoxElement.Padding = new Padding(2, 2, 2, 3);

    Let me know if I can help you any further with this.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
