    Can I change the "Please Select" placeholder text in asmSelect widget?

    Can I change the "Please Select" placeholder text in this widget?

    Perhaps with CSS inside the widget itself?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the "Please Select" text in the asmSelect widget.

    Also, there's no option to change it in the asmSelect widget wizard. 

    Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.

    Can't be changed with custom CSS inside the widget itself?
