Topic: Alternative drop down icon in select box.

williamw priority asked 2 years ago

I'd like to use an alternative drop down icon, such as from font-awesome.

It doesn't seem there is a way to specify the drop down icon in the otherwise excellent select box.

You cannot use alternative icon styles easily f.e. with attributes. For this moment there is only an option to add an image url (because in fact an icon is an image inside select option) or change icon Unicode via custom css.

Customization example:

Please insert min. 20 characters.
