Combobox drop-down height

    I had a combobox with 11 items and when clicked all the items showed with no vertical scroller. Now I added another item and now I get the vertical scroller.
    I thought there would be some property I could adjust to avoid getting the scroller, so all the items would be directly visible, but I can't see it now. Height applies to the non dropped-down state of the combobox.
    Am I overlooking something or is this just the way it is?

    This is how this (native) control behaves. You can play with the font size to change the number of items displayed.

    Thanks for clarifying and saving me to find a solution.
    Would it be possible to increase the drop-down height with the Door library?

    On the desktop you can set MaxDropDownItems property. Unfortunately it isn't supported on the device.

    OK, thanks. I will see if I can throw one item out.

    Dropdown Items Exceeding The Height Of Panel

    Hi,

    I have 12 items in the Combobox and my bottom items don't display as they exceed the height of my panel. It seems to scroll but not fully. Can I fix this by adjusting the extra margin around the items? Or is it possible to force the number of items displayed?

    I would appreciate any help.

    The platforms (WM and Android) are completely different. You should start a new thread for this question.
