I have a drop down on a web page and want to change the cursor from default to pointer, so my style definition has

style ="cursor: pointer;"

the drop down though fails to change from the default curor. I've tryed applying the style to the <select> tag and to the <option> tags to no avail.

if you want "pointer" why do you have "move"? What browser are you using?

Hi, I'm new here ( Hi all ), and my problem is: Is possible to change layout of drop-down list made with <select> & <option> tags. I don't like this ugly gray arrow, slider etc. in normal dropdown element. I tried the same way like for eq. <input> but in case of <select> it dosen't work.

Hi. I've been using display:none on the style property of some <option> elements in my forms, which works fine with Mozilla - as expected it removes the option from my dropdown (although it still exists in the code). Is there an equivalent in IE? The reasoning behind this is that I want users to rank objects using a <select> for each place (see below), and to remove the choice of earlier objects from <select> drop-downs later in the...

This is a nasty one and I can't see my way out of it. I have a bunch of select statements in a form, and each select statement has an onchange="do_something(this)" in it, and this works nicely..except when there is only ONE OPTION in a given select. It seems you cannot 'onchange' a single option! Well, that is reasonable. The trouble is I have no way of selecting it since the form itself is a

I've been ploughing through the archives here, but I can't seem to find a solution for my situation... Essentially, I want to run the JQuery script that is in the "value" attribute of my <option> tags, when they are selected. I know to use onchange="" and probably 'this', but how do I get the string in the value tag to run as a function? <select name="Add Criteria" onchange=""> <option...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
