having problems with IE

63 New Member
I'm using select field for listing a number of options. The width of the options are very wide compared to the select field width. The mozilla renders all the options very fine as it shows the full width of the options. But IE, it is always inviting troubles. IE shows the options of the select field whose width is equal to the select field width. So, I can't see the whole length options in IE. Is there any solution to this problem?
Here is the example of the code
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <tr><td >
  2. <select style="width:100px" name="menu">
  3. <option value="">Select Menu</option>
  4. <option value="1">Hello a very Good morning to everybody</option>
  5. </select>
  6. </td></tr>

Don't specify a width and it's gonna work.

[HTML]<select name="menu" >
<option value="">Select Menu</option>
<option value="1">Hello a very Good morning to everybody</option>

Thank you for your response.
But that is not what exactly I want. If I did not specify the width, the width of the select field becomes equal to the widest option in the list. When using 4 similar kinds of select fields in same row, it does not look good. I need to show the select field in IE exactly same as that is rendered by mozilla. Isn't it possible?

Hi all, I'm still having problems with VS.NET 2003 running on my XP machine. I finally decided I might as well uninstall completely and reinstall from scratch. But lo and behold it won't let me uninstall... It gets stuck about 2/3rds of the way through the uninstall (based on the progress bar) and hangs for a very, very long time (a few hours last time). Then it seems to give up and returns an error message stating that it cannot...

Hi All, It's taking a long, LONG time for me to see a post from here (and other NGs too, for that matter--which is why I think it may be me...). Sometimes it takes 2-3 minutes after clicking the post for me to be able to read it. And sometimes, it never comes up..instead I get "Message is no longer available on the server". Also, like right now, it's almost 9:30am and most recent post I can see was sent at about 2am.

Firstly, I'm not sure if this is the right group for this query, so please forgive me if I am wrong.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
