I have many drop down datawindows with 50+ items in the lists. So that I
can show the user more than the standard 10 lines at a time, I have set the
Lines In DropDown property to 20. When deploying this to the web, the last
line in the list is not visible. I do not have the H ScrollBar property
checked, but the appearance on the screen looks like there is space for a
horizontal scrollbar that may be covering the text. I can select the second
to last item in the list and press the down arrow to select the last item,
but it is never visible in the list.

If I change the Lines In DropDown back to the default 0, I am able to see
all items in the list. Is this a bug? If so, is there a work around for it
other than setting the lines to 0?

Hi Dave,
Long time no see! We suffered a earthquake in Taiwan which
affects the intercontinental communications cables,and
holiday for a few days to celebrate the new year.

Now, everything is almost back to normal.

Regarding your issue, I regret to say we failed to reproduce
it but we are sure that Appeon 5.0 + Xcelerator well
supports the drop down DataWindow (in those pure javascript
versions we support some dddw properties but do not support
the dddw.lines property).

Since you've set the dddw.lines property, we believe you are
using Appeon 5.0 + Xcelerator, but more information is still

Can you provide us your Appeon build number and attach a
simple case to reproduce?

To help us solve your issue ASAP, please give us the most
detailed information.

Happy new year & Best regards
