In the Java Client, the Menu Selections Are Displayed Depending On the Row Height

(Doc ID 2075631.1)

Symptoms

If 'Calculated Row Height' is activated and a list is opened, if the record to work with has a blob attached and the blob field is displayed in the mask, any field menu (drop down menu) is displayed in the same height as the record's height. That way the menus are too large and are not displayed correctly on the screen. It is not possible to correctly select values from the menu if the record's height is quite big. Furthermore the drop down button covers the entire field and can be even too big to fit into the field.

Expected Behavior:
==============
The menu's height should be one line per value and the drop down button's width should be one column only like it was in former e6 versions


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
==========================================
1. Activate 'Calculated row height' in the Java Client: Java Client > Preferences > General > Masks > Tab Layout > click checkbox 'Calculated row height'
2. Make Blob/Preview field visible on the Items list: T_MASTER_DAT.ART_BLOB (Sequence:1700) add 'r' in access field to make it readable
3. Add a preview/Blob to one or more items
4. Open those items in the item list
5. Edit one of these records and try to open a drop down menu (for example from field DT-Id: T_MASTER_DAT.DTS_REF)
=> Te drop down arrow fills the entire field or even does not fit into it (depending on the height of the row and width of the field)
=> The menu is as high as the record is displayed on the mask and so it can happen that not all values of the menu can be seen on screen and thus cannot be selected (because the navigation arrows are not there either).
