Is it possible that the combobos are hidden while rendering? Which version of GXT are you using?

Can you retest this against 2.2 RC1 if you not already use it?

I am using GWT 2.0.4 and GXT 2.1.1

Looks like i must be doing something bad since the demos in the explorer app do not appear to behave like this. Yes, the fields are not visible at first. Basically i have fields above these which causes a conditional display of this section.

For testing, i made the section visible from the start and it sizes correctly. How can i have this section invisible at first and render as expected?
