    Text getting cut off on drop down with multi-select.

    Asked by ubmdesigncentral on April 08, 2013 at 01:47 PM

    Form is here:



    input_61 - input_105 need the capability of not having the text cut off when using a drop down with size set to 3 to allow for multi select.

    Is this possible?


    Thank you!

    Unfortuantely, it is not possible to have a dropdown field that allows multiselect. However, as an alternative you can use the checkbox instead and spread it into several columns.

    Thank you.

    As far as I know, html/css does not support word wrap under select-options elements (drop downs). It might be possible by adding some 3rd party Javascript hack, but I would like to recommend you to simply increase the width of your drop down.

    Thank you.
