Easily Increasing the Height of the Picklist Dropdown in SalesLogix Web

Something that has always frustrated me when using the SalesLogix Web client was how the picklist control only shows four items in the dropdown and you have to scroll up or down to see the rest. This works fine for lists with only a few items, but for bigger lists it is a huge pain. It wasn’t until a coworker was asked by a customer that I gave it any thought about how to go about changing this. Luckily, it’s a pretty easy change to make.

This change can be made for all picklist controls in the client with a simple CSS change. If you open the sage-styles.css file in Application Architect. Look in the CSS folder in the Support Files for the portal. Then just add the following:

.picklist-container .picklist-inner-container .picklist-items

This change increases the height of the dropdown to 200 pixels. That changes the picklist dropdown from this:

to this:

Much better. Of course, you can play with that 200px value to get the default height to look & feel just right.

  1. Joe what file are you modifying? If it is the Sage-Style.css, I think that file is actually recreated on redeploy by combining the content of SLXBase, quickform, sage-controls, and sage-platform.css files. If you make the same mod to the sage-control.css file as what Ryan shows in the Sage-Styles.css that should make it out to the deployed website.
