    Using Ipad Safari, I cannot get listboxes ("select" tag) auto scroll in my web page.
    Is there a solution for that ?

    Thanks in advance

    I may not completely understand your question but, in Safari, to scroll in these boxes you need to use the two-finger scroll gesture. i.e. to scroll with two fingers at once rather than one.

    If I've misunderstood your question, please accept my apology.

    I´m not explained enough.
    In all browsers (Safari for desktop included), when I insert an item to listbox, it expands / scrolls automatically showing these items.
    Not so in Safari for Ipad : I need to tap listbox for browsing items inside it.
    I´ve read Safari mobile does not support listboxes and changes it to dropdown lists.
    No solution for that ?

    This probably won't help, but if you can provide an example site (one anyone can go to without a login), maybe we can experiment a bit.

    Now, I can send a link as example Juros

    That's a program for calculating interest.

    Ok, I checked it out. Everything works the same in mobile Safari as on computer except for the lists labeled 'Parcelas'. They look like empty menus instead of lists. You have to tap on them to see the list, which is then scrollable in the pop-up menu. Until you perform a calculation, they are empty, but they store each result.

    You can even select the result and have them display as the menu choice. Weird.

    Of the three other browsers I tried only Puffin displayed the page the same (or close enough) as the desktop. Since Puffin actually runs the page via a remote server using a desktop browser, I shouldn't be surprised. Other Flash enabled browsers will probably work as well.

    Note, this is not because the page uses Flash, it is because the remote servers are running desktop versions of a web browser.

    So, you can either use Puffin or something like, or just tap on the item to see the list instead of having it displayed automatically.

    So, the solution is to change the browser - not the javascript / html code.
    Thank you, anyway !

    Sorry. I didn't realize you were trying to create a site, not just view one. I don't have an answer for you. I'm afraid my web page skills are somewhat atrophied due to iWeb, and I never did learn javascript.
