IE Select bug?

Recommended Posts

I have a select box (multiple select) that I fill and it has about 200, give or take a few, items in it. In IE, the downward scroll button fails fairly consistently. The upward scroll button works fine all the time.

Has anyone else seen this? Does anyone know why it might be doing this? Using the scroll wheel on the mouse works fine as well.

i have noticed it before but it's very hit and miss and has generally depended on if i've used any custom CSS on the list. try adjusting the height of the selectbox by 1 more or less item and try again, as that's also helped in the past.

Well, this is my CSS:
[code]input, select, textarea  {
    font-family : Tahoma,Verdana,Arial,sans-serif;
    font-size : 8pt;
    border: 1px solid #0099FF;
    background-color: #DCDCDC;
}[/code]

And I have it set to a size of 20. Reducing or increasing that size seems to have no effect whatsoever. The weird thing is that if I flip to another window (say... Opera for example) and then come back, it works fine again. So I tried all kinds of shifting and returning focus to the element in JS, but no dice there either. It just seems odd that it would work perfectly in Opera and FF and not in IE. Not that I should be surprised, but this seems like a really basic issue to screw up on.

I'll take any other suggestions any of you might have.
