    Hi,
    I have just started developing a hybrid app and i'm having a problem with dropdownlists on the iOS platform. When the dropdown is selected the options appear at the bottom of screen.
    Does anyone have some instructions on how to get the options to appear under the dropdown?

    Thanks Chris

    Hello Chris,

    In general such functionality is not supported for mobile application, but here is a workaround that might do the trick:

    Hi Kiril,
    I have just started using Kendo UI to write an app for the iPad and I have come across this issue too.  If I use a drop down combo it looks normal, as I want, but if I use a drop down list the drop list fills the screen!  That might be good on a phone in portrait mode, but it doesn''t look good on an iPad in landscape mode, and doesn't fit with how I want the app to look.
    The workaround you posted seems to require a fixed height div, is that really what's needed to make this work?  I want my app to be responsive and size to fit the screen, so this sounds problematic.  Surely there must be a setting for the control to tell it to work as a normal drop down list?
    Thanks,
    Brian

    Hello Brian,

     

    I am afraid that there is no such setting that you can switch to turn on/off the functionality based on the screen orientation. And as I said in my previous response this is unsupported functionality and the posted solution is a workaround not an official support suggestion - and yes it requires some custom CSS rules. I am afraid that currently there is no other solution. You can submit this as a feature request on UserVoice, so we can consider it for a future implementation.
