Increase the the size of SSRS Parameter Drop down list
I have a multi value paramater drop down. In which I am displaying both Customer ID + Customer name. However the drop down list does not expand (in width) to show the whole CustID + Name instead has scroll bars to scroll across which is quite inconvieneeint for the user. Thanks in advance@

I have larger "Select one" parameters and smaller multi-value parameters not displaying the entire text. I think you should report this problem to Connect.microsoft.com.

I just want to point out that referencing the internal structures of the ReportViewer is not supported and therefore this type of workaround is very likely to break in the future. We are aware of this problem and are working to address it in the next version of the ReportViewer control.

Although the proposed solution does (unfortunately) take advantage of the internal control hierarchy of the ReportViewer control, this appears to be the only such solution after close to four years of the problem persisting.Since, to my knowledge, the problem persists in SSRS 2008, the issue will likely continue well into the future. Waiting a half-decade (and likely longer) for a solution seems well below optimal. Taking advantage of internal structure, therefore, given the lack of alternatives,appears a reasonable remedy.Others may, obviously, come to a different conclusion; their sole remedy at this time is to continue waiting.Brandon

Brian Is this problem fixed in 2008 ?.If so which version This is still unanswered! This is very unprofessional from Microsoft. I wonder if anybody reads this.

I would also like to know the status of this. Seems like such an obvious thing that users would want. Hard to understand why it is ignored. Sometimes parameter choices need to be long to be adequately descriptive.

When will this be available. It has been over 3 years since this was supposed to be in the next version.
