hi,
is there a way of building a combobox with a defined size ?

It
appears that the size of a combo box depends on
the list of input values that feed into it.




 




However,
if you use the lineup box function you can
change the size. 
Here's an example:

style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: "Courier New"; color: black;">month_list

style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: "Courier New"; color: navy;">=

style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: "Courier New"; color: black;">
{

style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: "Courier New"; color: purple;">"January"

style="font-size: 10pt; font-family: "Courier New"; color: navy;">,
