Ability to set size for Search & Select Prompt

By default the Select and Search prompt is a fixed size which makes it difficult for us to layout other components on our prompt page that align with this S&S component. Also, with its fixed size, it makes it difficult for us to render the page that fits on iPad/Safari. We should be able to define a size with respect to screen resolution for this component.

    Wait, this started in 2017?? 5 YEARS and IBM still hasn't done anything to address truncation of result data in a search and select prompt?

    You mean, giving users the ability to size or (auto-size) a simple prompt on a page is still not an out of the box default function? It must have some crazy Herculean effort involved! Way more complicated than adding Watson AI to the product.

    Yeah, I'm doubting they even look at this page. Good luck everyone.

    when a search and select parameter is used for lists with a long # of characters, users need the ability to expand the search box in order to identify the correct selection.

    This would also be useful to make the boxes larger as our data is longer - forcing users to use the scrollbar on any search to see what they are really looking for.
