Hey guys and Gals,

After a couple of months off, Im back again and have a whole host of questions to trouble you with, this first one has bugged me, I thought I knew the answer. I thought wrong!....

I don't recall where I saw it, but I saw a dropdown box in a field, and when I pressed the down arrow to expand it, I saw that in the drop down box, some of the options had different background colours - as to highlight them. I thought it would be easy with CSS, but could I do it? Like buggery I could!

Someone, enlighten me, please!

Here's a reference on how to introduce the color backgrounds into forms:

Is that where are you running into trouble? Or is it putting the forms on the drop-down?

BTW, colors for form backgrounds are not supported in NN4.x

Thats perfect, thanks Tedster. Shame the person who wrote it has no idea on colour co-ordination! Ahhh, bless! :)
