ComboBox dropdown sizing

I've got an app that uses several comboboxes for filling out a form. They're nested quite close together which isn't a problem on the mobile app, since when you go to search and select from the dropdown, the dropdown pops out and spans the screen so users can see the options (pictured in Example1). The desktop version, however, doesn't and the dropdown size is limited to the card size (pictured in Example2) so that longer named items get cut off.

Is there any way to force the mobile behavior within the desktop app, or some other option besides completely changing the layout size to accommodate some of the high character options? Thank you!

Hi @AdamD ,

Generally no, but have you tried running it in the desktop app downloaded from the Microsoft Store.


Please click Accept as solution if my post helped you solve your issue. This will help others find it more readily. It also closes the item. If the content was useful in other ways, please consider giving it Thumbs Up.

Good idea, but the behavior is still same in the app from the Appstore. Looks like word wrapping isn't an option in the dropdown either. Pity!

You could try maybe making the width of the combobox  dynamic,  making it bigger when selected,  and make it small again after.
