    select box css?


    I've been searching for ways to graphically customise my select boxes (<SELECT> ) in HTML, using CSS.

    However, I tried doing so, but it seems to me the SELECT element isn't quite customisable this way. How can i do so in CSS?

    Any help appreciated!

    <select> menus have limitations when it comes to applying CSS. In particular, I believe it's the borders and the arrow that you cannot modify. But you can change the background color, text color, font, etc. They do not inherit from <input>, you need a specific <select> assignment.

    Explain your problem instead of asking how to do what you decided was the solution.
