    customize drop down menu

    Im trying to customize my drop down menu, but Im not sure is there a way to change the color and look of the arrow by the side.

    this site pretty much has what i want: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamic...mbodescribe.htm

    but I'm trying to see if I can change the look of the arrow by the right side, like this picture

    Your link's incorrect. The "..." is included in the url as well as the link text. Corrected link:

    Well the drop downs you're seeing there are standard HTML dropdowns. The DHTML comes in when changing the label underneath the dropdown. As far as I know, there is no way to insert a custom image in a standard HTML dropdown. This means that you'll have to write code for a dropdown made completely with JavaScript to do what you're wanting to do.

    Maybe you can do it with CSS?

    If you can change the color and appearance of the browser scroll bar and other HTML form elements (a text field, for instance), then why not the arrow in a select menu?

    I would see about the CSS thing before I gave up on it...and if you find something, post it here...I'd be interested in knowing myself...

    Apparently, even Microsoft hasn't allowed that:

    More customize drop down menu

    I am having a similar problem with my drop down window. I have changed the background and font but the border won't go away or change color.

    The code is:

    border: #ffffff 1px solid}

    I have tried changing the color, the pixels to 0px or none and even the style, but nothing changes the border. Any suggestions?
