View Full Version : Hardcoding dropdown menu WIDTH
12-19-2002, 06:48 PM
I've tired searching for the answer first but anyhow...
I would like to know if it's possible to hardcode a specific width of a drop down menu?
One of the options/titles in the drop-down menu is very-y long so the drop-down extends the entire length of the box..
We don't want it wider then 450px MAX
So... can this be done? and/or can you 'wrap' a title?

hmmm, I am not sure if it will work (no time to check) but have you tried the CSS property max-width?

im not sure that max-width is supported yet though

I'm going to try searching for this (though nothing as of yet), but is there an attribute I can use within the form/option tag itself?
I know using CSS is good but this is the only place where this problems occurs is with this one drop-down menu (which BTW, you select from a list of options and then 'go').
We've tried width="" and max-width="" and maxwidth=""
Thanks for any help in the meantime :)

well, max-width is CSS only so nope it will not work as an attribute (unless inside a style attribute).
I am not sure that overflow would apply to a select/option element, but you could try overflow: hidden (the attribute would be style="overflow: hidden")
Other than that I am not sure

speaking of CSS why not use that?
that would not wrap though...

Well, I've passed these points onto the person responsible/taking care of the drop-down...
Will let all know what or if it works
