    Width settings for the Excel-like filtering context menu have not been exposed as it does not have a provision for changing its size.

    Nevertheless, a CSS override can change the menu elements width. This may not suit all use cases, and cannot be really dynamic because the width comes from CSS rules.

    Here are the key points:

    • The OnPreRenderComplete event is used to add a CSS class to the menu.
    • The RenderMode is Lightweight because it allow for more CSS customizations.
    • A dozen lines of CSS override the built-in menu settings so that they set the width to a hardcoded value (500px in the sample).

    do you have a similar sample for CheckList Filtering (FilterType="Combined")? I would like to change width of ListBox control with predefined values.

    Old post but very useful for our situation.  I have a question however, this works in "Lightweight" rendering mode only.   In lightweight, the font sizes of our grids are considerably larger than in classic mode.  Is there a way to correct this?   Thank you.

    How can we adjust the width of the filter menu when the grid is in a user control. OnPreRenderComplete isn't an available event in user controls.
