Problem


When creating a ComboBox in JFactory on any platform and then viewing it on a Solaris machine, the elements of the box look strangely large.


Cause


The Solaris implementation of Netscape's AWT seems to have a glitch in it that causes this problem. When viewing the applet/application with Sun's AppletViewer, the problem doesn't exist. Also, you see the ComboBox working correctly on other platforms when using Netscape.


Action


If the applet/application is targeted for Solaris users of Netscape, try using Radio Buttons instead of the ComboBox.
