    Hi ! I've a question, how do you people change the various properties of Dropn Down menus (Jump menus, in other words) throught CSS ? I'm using Dreamweaver 3.0 and using its built-in CSS modifier (text>CSS styles>Edit Stylesheets)

    Your best bet would to surf to a site that you like. View source and copy and paste...then you can change colors, styles etc.

    Here is a really easy way to style the drop down menus like you asked for.

    <select name="groups"style="font-size: 9; width=100">
    <option selected>Cell Group...</option>
    <option value="1">Wright</option>
    <option value="2">Matthews</option>
    </select>

    note...I am not saying that you should steal their code, just use it as a study model.

    Hi iron87,

    If you want to make your site crossBrowser, you cannot use the style attributes within a selection list. Netscape doesn't support them.

    Vincent...yes it does...view this website in Netscape.

    http://www.oursmallgroup.com

    The dropdown menu at the top right is being styled and it works in both browsers.

    It might not work on older versions of Netscape, but it works in 4.75.
