The amazing shrinking listbox! (?)
Posted on 2004-08-09
I have a table 700 pixels wide. I have a ton of listboxes and some have some very long options. These options come from a code list we have been given for this project so I don't want to tamper with the words by shortening any that might confuse the user. But I am having to drop the list box to the next line because I can't fit the title column on the left and the listbox in the right-hand column (which looks crappy). I was wondering if I could get a listbox option to span 2 lines? Or maybe if a user makes a shortened selection can I get a variable below it (I'm using JSP so I don't have labels) to dynamically display the entire option? Any suggestions?
