    Listbox question

    I have a web page that has a list box. I notice that on the ipad the list box is treated as a dropdown. The problem is that sometimes my lists are too long to fit in the popup and are truncated with '...' replacing the text that won't fit. Is there any way to enlarge the popup so that the text will be fully readable

    No, I stopped using listboxes. My programs have a known listcount so I created <div>s for each item and displayed the text that way. All my divs belong to the same class and so using jquery, I created a click event for members of that class which returns the text in $(this).val() and allows me to highlight the text by changing the font color $(this).css('color', 'blue'). This works quite nicely
