Hello!

When I enter edit mode in a Telerik radgrid I end up with all the textboxes beeing in different width.

I thought of solving this, by looping through all the items that is beeing edited and set them to System.Web.UI.WebControls.Unit.Pixel(300); to change the size.

I have tried with a loop looking something like below, but obviously this will yield error,

Any idea what to do to make them into the same size?

foreach (GridEditFormItem EdItem in rgRelMaterial.Columns)
  {
        EdItem.Width = System.Web.UI.WebControls.Unit.Pixel(300);
  }

foreach (Telerik.Web.UI.GridColumn c in rgRelMaterial.MasterTableView.RenderColumns)
            {
                c.HeaderStyle.Width = Unit.Pixel(300);
            }

I thought of that as first aswell, but the problem is that Telerik differs the textbox in the grid and the edit items.

When I use the code you gave, it will only change the textboxes in normal view (before and after edit) not the textboxes in edit mode.

So I need to determine somehow if the textbox found is in editmode or not, so that I don't alter the normal textboxes.

Tricky  I know :(

I think I sorted it out, by using onColumnCreated event (since the edit textboxes are created on the fly)

Something like this should work

protected void rgRelMaterialLoad_ColumnCreated(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridColumnCreatedEventArgs e)
        {

 if (e.Item is GridEditableItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode)
    {   
         // Insert code here to edit the width of the Column added.
    }
}
