Hi all,
I have SelectOneListBox with the tag "contentStyle="width: 200;"" to avoid a big size of the listbox in my webapp. The problem now is that the horizontal scrollbar is not rendered so I cannot see the really long values in my box. Some of the values are the same at the beginning and I need to see the whole value. The SelectOneListBox is taken from trinidad.
I tried already to set "overflow: scroll;" in css and referenced it in the tag "inlineStyle" but that didn't work.
Does anyone in here know how to get the horizontal scrollbar?
Thanks for helping,
Lars

A tooltip onmouseover would also do if possible. But I fear that doesn't work either with selectItems!?
I can't believe that it is not possible to create a horizontal scrollbar in a SelectOneListbox. Then this element is of no use...
Any help appreciated!
Lars

I had a similar requirement in my project. I ended up making custom components for selectItem and selectItems. The components take an additional attribute called tooltip which will be displayed as a tooltip. I used JSF in Action by Kito D Mann for reference, but I am sure there is plenty of help available online too.

This is at least his second notice. I remember asking Lars a while ago to change his display name, but he chose to ignore my request.
