limit number of shown items with no paging links

Feb 6, 2011 at 4:23 AM

I want to show no more than 10 items, in the drop down (filtered by entered text), but don't want to show paging control buttons.

Is there a built-in way to accomplish that? So  far my solution is to fix CSS to have .paging be invisible and collapsed. Is there more elegant solution?

Justification: I have 600 items in the list, and showing all 600 in the scrollable list takes too long.

In this case I use paging to limit number of items that get created.
