Adjust the choice list width

By default in UI11, all choice lists use a width of 160 pixels. You can adjust the width for all choice lists on the instance, or change the value for a particular list. This procedure is not applicable to newer versions of the UI.

Before you begin

Role required: admin or personalize_styles


  1. To change the width for all choice list on the instance, complete the following steps (requires admin role).
    1. Navigate to System Properties > UI Properties.
    2. Change the value for the Default choice list width (pixels) property (glide.ui.choicelist.defaultwidth).
    3. Click Save.
  2. To change the value for a particular list, for example, a list with much longer option names than other choice lists, complete the following steps.
    1. Navigate to a form where the field appears.
    2. Right-click the field label and select Configure Styles.
    3. Click New.
    4. In the Style field, enter width:auto.

      Leave the Value field empty so that the field style applies to all the choices for the field.

    1. Click Submit.

      When the field is displayed, the width adjusts to the size of the content.
