    selecting a DropDownList inside of a window-control results in a scrollbar on the side of the window-control. How can I prevent that?

    I attached a screenshot so you can see what I am talking about.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Oliver,

    The described behavior is possible to occur only if the popup.appendTo option is used for the DropDownList, so that the items' popup is rendered inside the Window and there is not enough room for it below the DropDownList widget. Normally the popup would be rendered as a child of the <body> element. Below is my test page, which works as expected and no scrollbar is triggered. Can you modify it until the problem is exhibited?

    You do realize that I'm working with MVC, right? It's such a hassle to reprogram an example with the "pure" JavaScript-engine ...

    The window is simply buggy. Sometimes there is a scrollbar on it even though I have "scrollable" disabled. Then, after I open and close a DropDownList inside of the window the scrollbar disappears.


    It doesn't matter if I make the Window bigger or not and its behaviour seems so random. Without changing the width/height of the Window it sometimes Shows the scrollbar. Sometimes it doesn't. It's really, really annoying and the your recommendation of reprogramming it doesn't make it better.


    I wish there were better/more demos, because as it is the stackoverflow-community is much more useful than your support and/or demos ...
