This article describes the inner structure and organization of the elements which build the RadFontDropDownList control.

RadFontDropDownList is a derivative of RadPopupEditor and it internally uses a grouped RadListView with default ViewType set to DetailsView. Two columns are displayed in the pop up list - while the first column stores the font name, the second column shows a preview of the respective font.
