    Hi Kendurkar,

    Set its width property to as much as you want.

    and what is your WAS version.

    In WAS with sp7 or lower this property is not available.

    Regards,

    I think the length of the dropdowns depend on the length of the text it holds.If the width set is smaller, it will grow to the length of the longest text it contains.

    Hi,

    Standard settings will only let you specify either of 2 sizes Standard or Small. For setting four different sizes you can create extended value selectors. Here you only create an InputField UI element which lets you specify the size of whatever length you require.

    Hi Experts ,

    Thanks for your suggestions !

    Changing the width property can change the length of drop down box . but here unit of this property is in pixeles i.e. if I set width to 40 it means 40px. so to set length as char 10 , what px should I set?

    Thanks in advance.
