SPSetMultiSelectSizes maxWidth problem

Jul 10, 2012 at 11:35 AM


I tried to fix the width without success. Here is my code:

	$(document).ready(function() {
	    multiSelectColumn: "ColumnName", 
	    minWidth: 100,
	    maxWidth: 200

No matter what value I put on maxWidth and minWidth, Width is getting the maximum value from the column.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks, Ovidiu

Can you explain what you'd like to happen? Do you want the width to be set to 200px regardless what the contents of the multi-select is?

Hi Marc,

Yes, I want to have the width between 100px and 200px, no matter what is the size of content.

I use this in a newForm, and I want to control the width of the form.

Thanks for your answer,


Width is getting the maximum value from the content of the multi-select, only with jquery.SPServices-0.7.1a

If I use jquery.SPServices-0.7.2ALPHA6, it doesn't change the width of control.

Using jquery-1.7.2.min.js

I just tested with  jquery.SPServices-0.7.2ALPHA7, which works fine in my WSS test environment, as does jquery.SPServices-0.7.1a.min.js. In both cases, with the options set as:

    multiSelectColumn: "Web Service Operation",
    minWidth: 100,
    maxWidth: 200

the left and right boxes are set to 200px, which I measured with the Developer Tools. The measurement does inclode the right side scrollbar.

Are you doing anything else in the form? Custom branding or other script?

I have a custom newForm, which was created in SPD 2010, by following regular steps of creating a new Form.

There is nothing customized.

In this form, I have two fields for which I want to use SPSetMultiSelectSizes.

And I use jquery.SPServices-0.7.2ALPHA6, not jquery.SPServices-0.7.2ALPHA7 like you.

I think you have a newest version which is not published yet :)

Yes, I have a newer alpha. but the function hasn't changed for quite a while. Since you've customized the form, your markup may well be different.
