    We have an issue with the display of a vertical RadTabStrip in IE 6 (which I guess we're still supporting).

    Rendered html is:
    <td valign="top" class="grayBak" style="width: 300px;"> <%-- Background for tabs: tabs should fill its width --%>
        <div id="ctl00_ctl00_CPH1_TabStripMyProfilePanel">
            <div id="ctl00_CPH1_TabStripMyProfile" class="RadTabStripVertical RadTabStrip_SimpleAMHC RadTabStripLeft_SimpleAMHC">
                <div class="rtsLevel rtsLevel1">

    Even though our containing div is 300px and we've styled several components (e.g. .rtsIn) to be wide,  in IE 6 the tabstrip width appears to be limited to 150px (See attached image "vertical radtabstrip width in ie6.jpg).  Other browsers are OK.

    Any ideas on fixing this for IE6?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    Could you please send us the definition of the combobox and used css styles? Thanks

    I found the culprit in your WebResource.axd file:
    HTML .RadTabStripVertical .rtsLevel {  
            WIDTH: 150px 
    Why is this hardcoded width there -- bug?  And I'm not sure why it only affected IE6.

    I'm using a custom skin (SimpleAMHC) for my vertical RadTabStrip, so I will now resolve the issue by adding this style:
    DIV.RadTabStripVertical DIV.rtsLevel {  
            width: 100%;  

    (Issue resolved)

    Hi Tom,

    Actually this is needed exactly for IE6 to show the vertical RadTabStrip properly. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
