Add option to move each highlighted item to the top (while searching), even if it is found outside of the visible part of the drop-down. The current behavior is to show the highlighted item at the bottom of the dropdown.

When the LIST is displayed in a RadDropDownList, the datasource is usually a lookup table.  Therefore,  it is not practical to set the LIST attribute "DropdownWidth" to a fixed number of pixels, since items can be added to the lookup table where the text length is longer than any currently in the table.   If you text is too long for the LIST width, the text wraps and this is not a pleasant user experience.  

This control needs an autosize feature for the LIST, so it fits the longest text without causing wrapping.   This feature already exists on the RadComboBox with attributes DropDownAutoWidth="Enabled" and "NoWrap=true".   These should also be used I the RadDropDownList so the LISTS work identically.

RadDropDownList has an attribute "DropdownWidth" that controls the width of the LIST when it drops down.   

If you set the width to a specific number of pixels (say 200px) then there is no issue.   But if you set it to "100%"  then I would have expected it to be 100% of the owner controls width.   But this is not the case, and it becomes very evident when the RadDropDownList is used with a template column of a RadGrid.  

In a RadGrid template column, this setting causes the LIST width to expand all the way to the right edge of the screen.   This seems to me to be a bug, as it makes no sense to behave this way.   You can see this behavior in the screenshot I have attached.  

It becomes more evident that this was not the intended functionality (and must be a bug) when you substitute the control with a RadComboBox, having exactly the same attributes.  This will use the combo's default settings and show a dropdown list.  With the RadCombBox the LIST does not expand to the far right of the screen, it behaves as expected, having 100% of the combobox width.  

I would expect both controls to work identically with their LISTS when setting the "DropdownWidth" attribute to "100%".
