Minimum items displayed in drop down list

Minimum items displayed in drop down list

Hello,

 

I create a drop down list of 7 items. When I want to select a value, I click on it and 5 values are displayed + a scroll bar.

I create a drop down list of 3 items. When I want to select a value, I click on it and 2 values are displayed + a scroll bar. 2 values displayed is a bit ridiculous. Why Act does not display the three possible values instead? A scroll bar for three values does not make sense.

 

Can we change that?

 

Thank you

Gregory

Hello Oliver,

 

Thanks for the input.

 

I really don't think this is the same situation as described in the link you posted. The fields are not missing from the drop down list. The problem is Act automatically creates a scroll bar no matter how many items are in the drop down list. This is ok when you have a lot of items. However, If you have only 3 items, this creates a very tiny scroll bar not user friendly.

 

To take it to the extreme I invite you to create a drop down list with one item and see the result........

Of course, in reality a one item drop down list would not make sense at all. But it illustrates very well the issue.

 

Thanks

Gregory

Here I have Act! Premium Version 17.1.169.0 English (United States)
It seems that we are having two different behaviors. On my second screen shot, this is a drop down list where users cannot add values.
