Select elements with many options in WebView display too many items in popup

    Details

      web

      Description

      Most browsers today limit the length of the popup to 10-20 items. But the JavaFX WebView uses all vertical screen real estate available (even going outside of the current window frame).

      There are a few acceptable solutions:
      The default max length needs to be made somewhere in the 10-20 range.
      An API needs to be provided for specifying the max number of items to display.

      Additionally, it would be nice to have a scrollbar for the popup instead of the existing (clumsy) up and down arrow items.

      My customer has complained about this issue and wants us to provide a fix in the next few months. This appears to be impossible atm without changes to JavaFX.

      Here is a screenshot of the giant popup menu reaching almost 1000 pixels: http://imgur.com/jPPdHiq
