Scripsit Paul Gorodyansky:
13 is an unlucky number. :-)
Yes, in some versions of IE.
IE 7 seems to show much more; it seems that the magic number is 30 there.
find out the relevant parameters and I way to affect them, but this would
fail when scripting is off and might depend on IE version.
Generally, drop-down lists are less useful on web pages than one might think
on the basis of user interfaces in typical programs. When a form is used for
user input, there's not that much point in creating several scrolling
systems - one for the page as a whole (as created by a browser automatically
when needed) and different scrolling mechanisms for select, textarea, and
input elements. Rather, you should organize the content so that everything
is visible at a glance to the extent that fits into the canvas - and
scrollable vertically with a single simple mechanism that users are well
familiar with. For example, you could use <select size="13"> or a fieldset
element containing 13 radio buttons.
