Width of dropdown select items menu


Does anyone know how to change the width of the dropdown items menu?

If you change the size of the 'empty' box it does not infulence the selection menu.

It works fine on a computer but doesn't on a mobile phone.
also is there a way to stop the phone keyboard showing just for that selection box?

Re: Width of dropdown select items menu

Hi @gazzo1967 ,


It seems that I cannot reproduce your issue. After changing the Width of dropdown control, the selection menu also changed its width, both on my pc and my mobile. What is the os version of your mobile? Please try to test with different ones.


Is it a standalone dropdown control or is it inside a form/gallery control? Also share the Width you used for the dropdown control.

Re: Width of dropdown select items menu


I have a samsung J5 using  android 8.1.0

The control is within a form element and is a choices dropdown.

As it has so many choices it fills the screen (60 items).

it is a multi-choice field.

Another thing i have found is that it 'cuts' off the bottom 2 choices in the list on the phone screen so you can not select them.
