Selectmenu default width is too small, causes overflow
|Reported by:||sandygettings||Owned by:|
By default, the width of a selectmenu is based on the native select element. However, the widget adds a small triangle icon on the right side of the button. This makes the selectmenu button too narrow for the selected item’s text and causes the text to overflow (which is displayed with ellipses).
The programmer can specify a fixed width to avoid this problem. However, when unknown data are displayed in the selectmenu (for example, from a database query), a fixed width may not be a good solution.
The widget should increase the default width to allow for both the text and the triangle icon.
A sample demonstrating the problem is available here: http://adacare.com/TestSelectmenuOverflow.html
