29 Jul 20233 minutes to read

The ListBox supports scrolling and it can be achieved by restricting the height of the list box using height property.

In the following sample, height of the list box is restricted to 290px.

import { ListBox } from '@syncfusion/ej2-dropdowns';

// define the array of object
let data: { [key: string]: Object }[] = [
    { text: 'Account Settings', id: 'list-01' },
    { text: 'Address Book', id: 'list-02' },
    { text: 'Delete', id: 'list-03' },
    { text: 'Forward', id: 'list-04' },
    { text: 'Reply', id: 'list-05' },
    { text: 'Reply All', id: 'list-06' },
    { text: 'Save All Attachments', id: 'list-07' },
    { text: 'Save As', id: 'list-08' },
    { text: 'Touch/Mouse Mode', id: 'list-09' },
    { text: 'Undo', id: 'list-10' }

// initialize ListBox component
let listObj: ListBox = new ListBox({
    //set the data to dataSource property
    dataSource: data,
    height: '290px'
