hi, i'm using the new IE7 on winXP prof sp2, i've just coded a page with a dropdown select, if there are 30+ items in the dropdown then IE7 gives me a scrollbar in the dropdown..all good.

is there a way of getting a scrollbar for an amount i wish, i.e for 10 items or more (a wierd requirement of my project) ? currently IE7 doesnt display any scrollbar for a dropdown of length 30 or less :-(

in the SELECT attribute i cant see anything i can set for this (so i see a scrollar when theres more than 10 in the dropdown)! any help would be great, thanks, Ronan.

HTML makes no provisions for setting such a metric. If IE7 doesn't provide a proprietary setting for this (and since IE6 did not, IE7 probably doesn't either), you've got a requirement that is impossible to satisfy.
