Increase Popup Edit Form and Textbox Width

The following example demonstrates how to increase the width of the popup edit form and the textbox width in the Grid.

Example

<style>

/*
    Increase the width of the edit form.
    The default one is 400px.
*/

.k-edit-form-container
{
    width: 500px;
}

/*
    Decrease the width of the edit form labels. The default one is 30%.
    The new width should depend on the column titles.
    Switch the text alignment to the left. By default, it is to the right.
*/

.k-popup-edit-form .k-edit-label
{
    width: 20%;
    text-align: left;
}

/*
    Increase the width of the textbox containers. The default one is 60%.
    The sum of label and editor percentage widths should be around 90%, to make up for existing paddings.
*/
.k-popup-edit-form .k-edit-field
{
    width: 70%;
}

/*
    Expand the edit textboxes and any other Kendo UI widgets.
    In case of unexpected side effects, use widget-specific classes, instead of .k-widget.
*/
.k-popup-edit-form .k-edit-field > .k-textbox,
.k-popup-edit-form .k-edit-field > .k-widget:not(.k-tooltip)
{
    width: 98%;
}

</style>
