Kestrel Fcs_M on Solaris

All items of Choice can not be displayed when the size of Choice is 
larger than the screen size because many items in it.

On the other hand, Choice on Windows can be displayed well 
even if many items are in it because a scroll bar is provided.

To reproduce,

1)Compile and run the attached program on Solaris.

2)Click the Choice menu.

3)Choice can not be displayed completely.

EVALUATION Similar to 4179758? Are there similar problems for Lists and menus? eric.hawkes@eng 2000-07-26 Commit to fix in Merlin. There is interest in having this fixed earlier - either in Kestrel-Solaris, or as an escalation by CTE. Either way, we should get it into Merlin. (Also it is an SQE yellow bug). eric.hawkes@eng 2000-07-27 My understanding is that native motif choice widgets use a scrollbar in Motif2.1 but not in Motif1.2. Both these versions of motif are supported in Kestrel-Solaris and in Merlin. Our inclination is to have the AWT widget use the native widget, since that is what developers generally expect from AWT widgets. We are currently investigating supporting this in Merlin. eric.hawkes@eng 2000-09-26 Name: ssR10077 Date: 04/09/2001 The current Motif widget XmOptionMenu doesn't allow scrolling. New Choice native layer is implemented using XmComboBox from Motif 2.1. The new code is used only with Motif 2.1, with Motif 1.2 the old behavior is conserved. The Motif 2.1 is used by default with Solaris 7 and 8 and Linux. ======================================================================
