    Form Text SIze

    Stevan
      I want to change the font size of a drop down list in a form box . Can not seem to make it change size Using Version 6.0

      <SELECT name=cruise_year>
      <option value="2007">2007</option>
      <option value="2008">2008</option>
      <option value="2009">2009</option>
      </SELECT>

          Please update your DMX6.0 to DMX6.1 are your earliest convenience.

          How have you tried to do this? CSS will work -

          select { font-size:x-small; }

              No. Show us what you have tried, and explain what you mean by "will not let
              me do that", please.

                  Where? I do not see it there.

                  Did you add it to the head of the document?

                  <style type="text/css">
                  <!--
                  select { font-size:x-small; }
                  -->
                  </style>
                  </head>

                      Did you apply the search class to the desired <select> tag?

                                Value attributes should be quoted:

                                  That still does not solve the font size problem . I have this a the very top <td width="243" height="89" valign="top" class="box2"><div align="left"> SO you saying I do not know HTML is wrong ???

                                  WHat you posted does not solve the font size SO i assume you do not know how to fix the font size as what you posted is not the answer is what I have now

                                    This has to be this way

                                    <OPTION value=1>Carnival</OPTION>

                                    Not this way

                                    <OPTION value="1">Carnival</OPTION>

                                    As when I wrote the coding for the php database YOU have to have it that way or you get a Parse error, unexpected T_STRING error

                                    Do to the fact the database php script is looking at the 1 not Carnival so if you "1" you get a Parse error, unexpected T_STRING

                                    I am not the best in html that is why i use D/W but PHP is my area

                                      Nonsense. But good luck....

                                      Perhaps if you show someone the totality of the page's code, you could get
                                      some specific help. But just for grins, see if your page validates here -

                                          Why should I post a huge string of code ?? The only problem I have it text size in what I showed . The line <td width="243" height="89" valign="top" class="box2"><div align="left"> Only effects the layout of the box not the form itself .

                                          Anything that is not in the form I can change the text size, SO why would I post all of that that ?? So it comes down to you do not know how to change the text size in a form .

                                          BUt when I find out I will post it just for you

                                              When you put the class on the <select> tag, as I showed you originally, it
                                              will work UNLESS there is some other styling that interferes. That's why we
                                              need to see the whole page - just post a link to it. If you want a good
                                              answer, that is.
