    In my Listbox, which is based on the default functionality demo, the last item is not visible, yet the vertical scrollbar is hidden.

    If I interpret the source code correctly, in the _updatescrollbars function, the checkboxes are not considered when initially calculating the width to
    determine whether a horizontal scrollbar reduces the visible height. In my case, the code assumes there is no need for a horizontal scrollbar, therefore hScrollOffset is 0.

    Now, virtualHeight + hScrollOffset does not exceed outerHeight, therefore no vertical scrollbar is visible.

    Yet later on in the function, the width is calculated again, this time considering the checkboxes, and as the condition ‘virtualWidth >= outerWidth – scrollOffset – checkboxes’ is true, the horizontal scrollbar is visible, reducing the visible height and hiding the last item behind the horizontal scrollbar.

    Thank you for looking into this.

    Hello stefanb,

    You can use property autoHeight: true. If this is not suitable for you, please review the following example.
