Hi,

I have a combobox with very long paragraphs as choices in the drop down.

Would there be a way to show the choices each as multiline instead of one long line for each choice, there's no way to display the entire paragraph in the drop down as a line, it's too long!

I don't know of a way to allow for a multi-line combo box selection... but here are some alternatives. (there are several good solutions in this thread)

The idea is to create a separate place to display the full text (as in a tool-tip), but allow the combo-box to only contain a short description for each selection.
