Hi folks, i am populating a drop down from database in a jsp page.

The values retrieved are longer so the drop down width size increases to the highest length of the value and it makes the form look dirty.

is there any way to solve this problem. how can i shrink the drop down box, if possible can the box being displayed on clicking drop down be bigger than the actual dropdown width.

my code is

<html:select property="name" onchange="getname(this)">

<html ptions collection="nameDetails" property="nameID" labelProperty="Name" />
</html:select>


Thanks,
Ketan.B.Parekh

You might be able to use attribute styleClass of struts html:select tag. This styleClass is similar to class attribute in html select tag and can be customized in CSS file.

For example in CSS you can use code like this:



You can then use styleClass="FormBox50" in html:select tag.

Hope this works out for you.
