Hi Experts,

While using RadTextBox, RadMaskedTextBox and RadNumericTextBox i noticed that whatever width i set in my aspx page for these control was actually getting reset in PageRender event.

This behavior was noticed when i had a case where i need to render additional item with these control and was trying to shrink their width's and noticed that they were reset to empty unit value.
After debugging we noticed that the width set remains in Width property of the control till PagePreRender event.As soon as we enter the PageRender event it gets reset to empty unit.

Would really like to understand  this behavior of telerik control and appreciate some resolution.

Regards,
Aayam Singh

Hi Aayam,

RadInput textboxes consist of several HTML elements, not just a single textbox. That's why the width of the control is normally set via the Width property and may be applied to several elements (depending on the browser and control configuration).

How exactly are you trying to set the width? I suggest you to use the Width property or alternatively, use CSS classes as demonstrated in this help topic:

Hi Dimo,

We had a look at the link you sent me but it still doesn't solve our purpose.
What we need to do is shrink the set Width of control by configurable percentage in Page Render event.But in this event the Width property is already reset.
I have attached a sample applicaiton in support ticket i raised.
Here is the ID for the same: 311559

I have just placed a simple RadMasked Textbox with width = 100px.
When fetched  this Width in PreRender it works fine but when tried to fetch in in PreRenderComplete  its already reset to empty.

I would like to understand this behavior.

Hi Aayam,

In PreRender the value of the Width property of the control is taken and assigned to

EnabledStyle.Width
EmptyMessageStyle.Width
HoveredStyle.Width
FocusedStyle.Width
ReadOnlyStyle.Width
DisabledStyle.Width
InvalidStyle.Width

After that, the ControlStyle is reset.

If you want to manupulate the Width in PreRenderComplete, you have to get/set it from/to the above properties, not Width.

All the best,
