Most form controls in modern browsers tend to have a Windows XP or better look and feel to them. Thus buttons will appear with curved corners - though in Opera this is an option that has to be turned on:Tools Menu -> Appearance ->Skins Tab -> Windows Native.

Combo boxes created via the

<select>

tag are an exception. They are only partially responsive to CSS styling done via

<style class="...">

. The degree of responsiveness is browser dependant with the worst culprit being IE6 - can’t speak with authority of IE5.5 etc, it has been a long time since I used it.

Here is a way round the problem

The technique relies on making the <select> completely transparent. Unfortunately, this means it will not work in IE6 since IE6 selects seem to ignore the opacity setting.

So now both of the most popular versions of IE are behaving. Next we can style the text input field:

.combo {
height:20px;
width:140px;
color:#000000;
border-style:solid;
border-width:1px 0px 1px 1px;
border-color:blue;
margin:0px;
padding:0px;
vertical-align:bottom;
}

The height is set to the same as the image and the width is long enough to display each of the options in full. It is given the same border values, with the exception of missing off the right-hand border, as this will be flush with the image anyway. The div containing the options will need to be hidden for now, and will only be shown when the drop-down arrow image is clicked (exactly like a standard combo box). This CSS for this would be as follows:

#combodiv {
padding:0px;
display:none;
position:relative;
left:151px;
height:150px;
width:120px;
border-style:solid;
border-width:0px 1px 1px 1px;
border-color:blue;
background-color:white;
overflow-y:auto;
overflow-x:hidden;
}

FYI - it’s not so much a discussion as one person copying and pasting from another source without credit - http://www.explainth.at/en/html/selstyle.shtml.

Now credit has been given.
