Too many dropdowns on an ASP page

P: n/a
My ASP page contains around 35 dropdown controls. If I try to open this page
from a Win98 OS , the dropdowns appear jumbled up. They overlap on each
other. However, this problem is not reported on any other Windows OS. Any
ideas please ??

Sounds to me like it's a browser issue. Try collecting a few more details
about what's going on, i.e. what browser, are you using CSS, is it just a
side effect of low resolution, etc. and then inquire in a related browser
group.

You will need to post this to an html newsgroup.

As a guess, I would suspect that it's more to do with screen resolution or
browser version than Win98.

Are you using styles to place the controls? Does the browser support the
stylesheets?

I had the same problem...

If you pull that page up on Win 2000 it won't happen. I have read
that IE creates an object handle for every control on the
window.document, and Win98 has a limit in the stack (memory, or
something) that won't allow it to handle all these objects.

It's an operating system problem.
