problem with enableOptionAutoWidth and spaces

I have a problem with the enableOptionAutoWidth function of dhtmlXCombo : the width adapts to the longest word of the option, not to the whole text of the option.

For exemple :

with this option :

d123 appareils automatiques

the width of the combobox adapts to “automatiques”, not to “d123 appareils automatiques”.

Here is the javascript (/ incuded) :

var z=new dhtmlXCombo(“combo_zone1”,“alfa1”,“100”);


z.enableOptionAutoWidth(true); // enables auto width of combo options



Here is the xml file encoded in utf-8 :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

    d123 appareils automatiques

    d234 droits de circulation vins mousseux

    d345 droits de circulation vins tranquilles

Combo allows to use wrap text inside options, and prefers it other sizing combo-list area.
You can change behavior by adding next css style to the page.

.dhx_combo_list div{

Thank you very much, it worked.

I had to change the overflow-x to let it overflow the combobox :
