Styling select dropdowns with jQuery

  • # February 27, 2009 at 4:44 pm

    Hello everyone,
    I search and search without any decent result.
    I’d like to use js to style my select dropdowns but I don’t seem to be able to find a good plugin for this.
    Could anyone help?
    Please?

    Do you mean you want JS to enable your drop downs to do something interesting other than just appear? You dont really style things, other than animations, in your JS otherwise it gets a little messy… best to call it in and attach it to the menu items…

    What are you tryin to do? make a nice java enabled dropdown menu?

    If one tries to style the select elemnt with css you get different results in different browsers.
    All I want, is to have my styles (just some border colour and background colour, nothing all that fancy) be the same in most modern browsers.

    Has nobody else ever wanted nice looking select dropdowns?
