    How to change drop down arrow

    Asked by prophc on October 31, 2012 at 03:34 PM

    On my drop down menu I have a blocky grey button with a black arrow. Is there a way to change it to just the black down arrow in css? Or change it to an image?

    The link should be accessible now:


    Note, that we use a standard drop down control, so the drop down arrow depends on the browser implementation. In other words, you will see the native drop down implementation in each browser.

    It is possible to use some CSS hack to change this behavior. For example, this CSS (the code will need to be adjusted to work on other form) changes the drop down on the next form:


    You might also consider using available drop down widgets.


    Thank you.
