Hi,
I am developing a site in Symfony. I have a autocomplete box whose contents ate taken from a databse. If there are many recors the autocomplete box shows a scrollbar. which is fine. But If there are 1 or 2 records then also a scroll bar is shown which doesnt look nice. Please help me disable the scrollbar in autocomplete box.

Thanks
</php echo input_auto_complete_tag('txtFriends', '',

				   'default/getContacts',

array('autocomplete' => 'off','size'=>'20','class' => $txtCss." nobdrfld" , 'onkeyup'=> 'KeyPress(event)','style'=>"overflow:hidden;"),

array('use_style'    => true, 'before_update_element' => 'KeyPress', 'after_update_element'  => "getSelectionId")

Open in new window

You've to find a way to set the CSS property "overflow" of the parent div (the container) to "auto", this will only add scrollbars when needed. Probably at the moment it is set to: scroll

There are 4 possible values for "overflow"

overflow: visible Adjusts height and width of the div so that the content can fit
overflow: hidden content is clipped
overflow: scroll Add scrollbars (even when not necessary)
overflow: auto Only add scrollbars when needed

I hope this is helpful to you. Goodluck!
