Hi All

Pls excuse my poor explanation! I have a drop down list which is part of the order form. Customers can select size, click on the little arrow, and chose their size from the list. I can change to font in the list, but the box/drop down menu... looks rubbish! Can I change the actual look of the menu?
Thanks so much
Kitty :shock:

Getting/styling form elements (especially select boxes and combo boxes) with CSS cross browser can be a real pain. Especially in IE 7 and IE 8, but also the older versions of the cool browsers have a way of interpreting styles differently then intended.

I would look into JavaScript/jQuery solutions... there are heaps on the net to find. Browsers that don't support JavaScript, or users that have JavaScript disabled in their browsers, will just get the browsers' default styling.

Here are some I find useful:
