Scrollbars for a Window component when content will not fit on display size

Scenario is a page containing a grid component and a child component based on the TelerikWindow for viewing/adding/editing.  Record selection in grid makes child component visible.  Full-record editing may exceed available display space.  I have already broken down the model form into smaller pieces using tabstrips but some of the remaining pieces cannot be logically broken up much further.

I would like for optional (or automatic) creation of vertical and horizontal scroll bars on the window when the content exceeds the size of the editing window.

Currently, oversize content is off-screen and not reachable.

@Parker - please post this question in the forums or in a support ticket. Also, provide more information what you are trying to do, and how are our components involved, as the current inquiry is too general. Thanks.

Hi Marin,

Hello John,

When you set a size to the window, there will be scrollbars if the content is larger. If there is no size set, the default browser element sizing is in effect and the elements stretch in size. I've added an explicit tip about this in the docs (pull request link), and you may also find interesting the idea of making the window responsive.

With that said, I am marking this as Completed, because the ability is there in the component, and it is up to the application to configure it to achieve the desired results.
