Home › Forums › CSS › Make a select the width of the chosen option
I want to make a select that will dynamically change size depending on what option has been chosen.
I have been rattling my brain with a way to do this with pure css and I just can’t seem to get it to work, does anybody have any ideas?
I have made a really basic codepen of what I mean here
Pretty much impossible with standard select boxes.
These are browser specific and, generally, styled by the browser user agent.
As far as I know the select dropdown options will always be a fixed width wide enough to show the longest option.
Pretty much you only option is to hide/replace with another set of elements.
Yeah thats kind of what I thought just wanted a few other opinions on it :)
