Horizontal scroll bar problem in Listbox

  • 12 years ago
          I want horizontal scroll bar in Listbox. For that i am using following code.

    <div style="width:120px; overflow-x:auto">
    <asp:listbox id="lstboxvalue" runat="server" width="125px" rows="6" ></asp:listbox>

    It gives me horizontal scroll bar. But it truncates some portion of text. The whole text is stored in database but whole isn't reflected here. Can anyone tell me what could be the problem.

    eg. The text stored in database is 'testing by needhi', den it shows only 'testing by ne'.
    Plz help. Its urgent..

    The reason you are getting a scrollbar is because your containing div for the listbox is smaller than the listbox.

    you want to adjust your markup to something like

    <div style="width:120px;>
    <asp:listbox id="lstboxvalue" runat="server" width="120px" rows="6" style="overflow-x:auto;" ></asp:listbox>
