HI,

Is there any way to change the default look of HTML drop down box created with html select tag.

I want to create a dropdown using HTML which needs to have an image instead of regular icon.Is it possible.

It is not possible to change the form element. If you want it to look different, you need to build yourself a control out of HTML and JavaScript. Messy!

I never knew that html drop down boxes can have regular icons? Is that a typo or am I missing something here?
