View Full Version : combo box not displayed correctly in Netscape 4.x

11-11-2002, 05:59 AM

The combo box (with size attribute set to 1) is displayed correctly in IE but not in Netscape 4.x. Instead of the presence of a combo box, all the values that are supposed to populate the combo box are listed in what looks like an uneditable text box. So instead of getting a combo box with an arrow to bring up a list country names, all the country names are listed horizontally within a bordered text area.

Any ideas on what is causing this?
Any ideas on how I can fix this problem?.

Thank you.

Sounds like you didn't put the <form></form> tags in there.

Did you use CSS to style the border? I've seen the same thing in NN4 when I did. NN4 doesn't like borderstyles in <select> tags.

Thanks to all who replied to my posting.

MCookie, you are correct! When I set the border-width to none in the CSS, the problem disappeared so I created two external style sheet, one for Netscape4 and another for IE.

Thanks for your help,
