Forms Data Controls :: Dropdownlist Width / Can Set The Width Property Of The List To Display Wider Than The Field Itself

Oct 4, 2010

I have a dropdown list in a gridview field. The DataValueField for the ddl is an 8 digit item code. The text to display through will be quite longer, 40-60 characters because it will combine the item code and item name into a single string. I don't want the dropdownlist field to be that wide though, only what is displayed when the ddl is selected.In Access you can set the width property of the list to display wider than the field itself. Is there that capability in ASP.NET and if so where do I find it?

Forms Data Controls :: To Set The Width Of A GridView To A Pre-determined Width?

Oct 5, 2010

Is there any way to set the width of a GridView to a pre-determined width?

I have set the width of the gridview and all the columns to a % and then to a number of pixels but it does work. The gridview always sets itself to a width required to display all fields and it goes beyond the resolution of the screen. I would like to contain it to 1024 pixels.

Here's my .aspx

Web Forms :: DropDownList With Multiline ListItems - Expands The Width Of The List

Jul 28, 2010

I have a DropdownList where some of the items are longer then the width of the list. Firefox expands the width of the list and shws the full length of the ListItem, but Explorer (som people still use that) doesn't do that which results unability to read the whole of the ListItem. I added a "Title" attribute (Tooltip) to the ListItems which shows the full text but even though, the client asks if it's possible to split long ListItems in several lines so user will be able to read it without needing the Tooltip.

Forms Data Controls :: Width Property In EmptyDataRowStyle Doesn't Seem To Work

Feb 17, 2010

No matter how I set the width in the EmptyDataRowStyle in a GridView, it gets ignored. The width of this construct always takes on the width of the text instead of what is asigned to the width property. This is also true if the property is set as a CSS style width.

If the width is assigned to the GridView construct then the EmptyDataRowStyle will take on that width.

I used this construct to test this:

AJAX :: Restricting Width Of ResizeControlExtender To Width Of The Parent Controlcontainer?

Jun 10, 2010

I'm sure this question has been asked before but I have been unable to find an answer so far. I want to create a control consisting of a label, an editor control and make the editor control resizable using the ResizeControlExtender:


I have is to extend the control vertically, effectively making it longer, but I don't want the user to make it any wider than it parent control - effectively disabling the option to make it wider. Hopefully that makes sense - for an example, look no further than the control used to input text when creating a post.

Mar 16, 2011

I have a GridView, in which the width of each column is dynamic and changes depending on the dataset. I need to get the width of each column for use in my PDF exporter, but the column/cells width is always '0', presumably because I haven't set the width property.

Is there a way around this?

Web Forms :: To Style The Width Of Columns Of A Checkbox List

Feb 26, 2011

been trying long time now to style the width of columns of a checkbox list, trying to group text by similar lengths, something like this:

small width [] wider width here [] widest width of all here []
small wid [] wider width h [] widest width of all h []
small widt [] wider width her [] widest width of all her [] (of course the checkboxes line up in the actual form)

so smaller length texts are not too far away from their checkbox, the checkboxlist control seems to have an iron grip on those col widths
