Customize drop-down width in shiny selectInput

The code below, adopted from this question, prevents a drop-down from wrapping text, and sets the width of all of the drop-downs.

Is there a way to customize the width of the drop-down for each

selectInput
?

library(shiny)

ui <- (fluidPage(
sidebarLayout(
sidebarPanel(
selectInput("userInput","Select User", c(1,2,3),
selected=1),
selectInput("LongInput", "Long Strings", c("This is a long long string that is long.",
"This is a long long string that is longer."))
),

# allows for long texts to not be wrapped, and sets width of drop-down
tags$head(
tags$style(HTML('
.selectize-input {
white-space: nowrap;
}
.selectize-dropdown {
width: 660px !important;
}'
)
)
)
)
))

server <- function(input, output, session) {}

shinyApp(ui, server)

Answer

If i understand your right you need something like

   library(shiny)

ui <- (fluidPage(
  sidebarLayout(
    sidebarPanel(
      selectInput("userInput","Select User", c(1,2,3),
                  selected=1),
      selectInput("LongInput", "Long Strings", c("This is a long long string that is long.",
                                                 "This is a long long string that is longer."))
    ),

    # allows for long texts to not be wrapped, and sets width of drop-down
    tags$head(
      tags$style(HTML('
                      .selectize-input {
                      white-space: nowrap;
                      }
                      #LongInput + div>.selectize-dropdown{
                      width: 660px !important;
                      }
                      #userInput + div>.selectize-dropdown{
                                            width: 300px !important;
                      }
                      '
              )
      )
      )
      )
      ))

server <- function(input, output, session) {}

shinyApp(ui, server)

Its set 660px for LongInput and 300px for userInput

Update

you also can do it dunamic for example you have df with input name and size

df1=data.frame(name=c("LongInput","userInput"),px=c(600,300))

So try

library(shiny)

ui <- (fluidPage(
  sidebarLayout(
    sidebarPanel(
      selectInput("userInput","Select User", c(1,2,3),
                  selected=1),
      selectInput("LongInput", "Long Strings", c("This is a long long string that is long.",
                                                 "This is a long long string that is longer."))
    ),

    uiOutput("din_css")

      )
      ))

server <- function(input, output, session) {
  df1=data.frame(name=c("LongInput","userInput"),px=c(600,300))

output$din_css=renderUI({
    tags$head(
      tags$style(HTML(paste0('
                      .selectize-input {
                      white-space: nowrap;
                      }',
                      paste(apply(df1,1,function(i){
                           paste0("#",i[["name"]],"+ div>.selectize-dropdown{
                            width: ",i[["px"]],"px !important;
                           }")
                      })
                      ,collapse='/n')      )
      )
      )
    )
  })
}

shinyApp(ui, server)
