    Hi guys,

    This is my second question regarding my custom checkbox using the option menu to add code for a spinner and textboxs also.

    The spinner looks and works great in safari, but in Internet Explorer and Firefox it only shows up as a textbox.

    Is there a way to make it show up in IE and Firefox the same wonderful way it shows up in Safari?

    The spinner is actually an HTML 5 input element with type "number". Firefox and Internet Explorer treats the number field as a regular text box, as opposed to a box with up and down arrows as with WebKit based browsers such as Google Chrome and Safari.

    This is a browser inherent property, and there is absolutely nothing we can do about it.

    On another note, please be reminded that custom input codes as checkbox options will not work. Kindly refe to your other thread for an explanation.
