hi

i am populating a dropdownlist from database. the query is working fine.

problem is the full text is not appearing in dropdownlist.

e.g if it is "expenses-legder full details" in database.

in dropdownlist its showing only  "expenses-ledger " and omitting rest of the characters.

is there any property of dropdownlist i can set to get this work.

thanks

There was a previous post  in EE for the same in VB. See that so that it will be of some use.
