Trouble with CSS for Configurable List dropdowns (formatting to match default style)

    Asked on February 06, 2018 at 03:29 PM

    Hello, I'm having trouble applying custom CSS to a Configurable List widget. I'm able to make it work in someone else's form and a clone of it by modifying the CSS rendering in Chrome as below, as well as simply 'select' as seen in the attached screenshot (form from this thread):

    input[type=button], input[type=text], select, textarea {border-radius: 0px}

    My form does not appear to make the same elements available. Unfortunately, the clone does not allow any CSS injection anywhere in the form builder or widget.

    I have not been able to find in your documentation or user forum a comprehensive list of elements and classes in the Configurable List stylesheet.

    Specifically, I would like to format a dropdown field so it matches the default form style. I'm using the date type, and I need a month and year. In my live form you can see the attempted workaround with regular jotform spinners, but it does not work out so well visually. I am not doing any calculations so text fields would be fine in this case, but since there are two fields within one question (date: month, year), that solution does not work.

    I'm hoping there's an easy fix, thanks for looking into this issue!

    I have cloned your form for testing and it seems that your comments in the code field were causing the issue:


    Please delete unnesessary code to fix the styling. 


    Hope this helps!

    Hi Victoria, thanks for your reply! Unfortunately this does not work. I actually added the comments just for you, after I had tried everything I could think of.

    I still think that there was a typo mistake at your first section of code. 

    I can see now that you have solved it! 


    And I forgot to give you the link to my test form.

    Here it is:

    Feel free to clone it for closer checking.



    If you need further help with your forms, just let us know.

    Seems that the issue is occurred on MAC only. Please use this CSS code instead:

    select {

      -webkit-appearance: none !important;

      -webkit-border-radius: 0px !important;


    Let us know if you have any other question. Thank you!
