I am populating a drop down listbox control dynamically through a javascript function.
The drop down list box is behaving well in IE
But in netscape(4.7x) the list box after droping does not expand. instead it gives a vertical scroll bar showing just one item.

Please solve the problem at the earliest
Thanks

AFAIK, this can't be done. 'twas resolved in the later versions of netscape.

Hi Srividya,

Here is the code the answers your question.I have implemented two  methods of doing the above.One without the function and with the function.

Hope i have answered your question.

Regards,
Nagarajan.

<html>
<head>
     <title>Untitled</title>
     <script>
     var str=new Array();
     str[0]="India";
     str[1]="US";
     str[2]="UK";
     str[3]="Australia";
     str[4]="Singapore";
     
     var strNew=new Array();
     strNew[0]="HongKong";
     strNew[1]="NewZealand";
     strNew[2]="uk";
     strNew[3]="Australia";
     strNew[4]="Singapore";
     
     function populate(f){
          for(i=0;i<str.length;i++){
             f.selectBox.options[i].text=str[i];
          }
     }
     </script>
</head>

<body >
<form name="f">
Select Box1 <select name="selectBox">
<option>-----------
<option>
<option>
<option>
<option>
<option>
</select>
<br>
Select Box2
<select >
<script>
for(i=0;i<str.length;i++){
   document.write("<option>"+str[i]);
}

</script>
</select>
<input type="button" value="POPULATE Select Box1" onclick="populate(f)" >
</form>


</body>
</html>

The only way to do that is to make the selectbox appear the correct size at startup and replacing the option safter that. So:

<select ...>
<option>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</option>
<option>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</option>
<option>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</option>
<option>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</option>
</select>
