           Summary: PropertyGrid: drop-down windows are truncated to column
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: SVN
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor

A PropertyGrid has various drop-down controls for editing certain types, for
example: Color, Boolean, AnchorStyles, DockStyles etc.  If the value column is
very narrow then the drop-down window is drawn cropped to that width.

For instance if the value column is made very narrow then the Color dropdown
display only a few pixels of the palette alongside its scrollbar.  (See bug
356527 for height problems with the color dropdown).  In MSFT, the drop-down
window can be both wider that the column, but also can be wider than the parent
window itself.  Note there seems to be no issue with overflowing the bottom of
the parent window.

(Note: If the value column is *extremely* narrow then MSFT will draw the
drop-down's drop-down arrow over the value and even over part of the name
field.  On Mono the drop-down arrow for the Color editor is only drawn in the
text part of the field and thus to see the arrow control the column has to be
wider that the width of the color sample.  I presume this doesn't need to be
fixed -- I'll log a new bug if it should).

Tested on Win32.
