    Customising appearance of selectlists & textareas

    I would like to know if there is a way to customise the appearances of selectlists & textareas with css (borders, heights, arrowcolor etc). It seems like in IE5+ i can customise everything except these objects! Is it really so!?

    yes, nearly everything is customizable, including those. can we see the CSS you're using? maybe there's a typo or something somewhere.

    Thanks for your reply!

    For example, I use this class for a selectlist, which remains with the "default xp-border" (blue) anyway:

    select.admin_xl {border: 1px solid;border-color: #999999;font-size: 12px; color: #000000 ; width: 280px}

    select menu scrollbar and border cannot be configured with CSS
    they will be the indapendant users system colors.

    everything else you can change

    also refer to how to make drop down list into CSS??
