Drop Down Options

  1. R Chilton

    Couple of questions regarding using the drop down field.

    1. I am having an issue targeting the hover color of the drop down menu

    2. I would like the email notification that the client receives to go to two different clients depending on which one of the dropdown choices the customer chooses. So I need to know what how and where to enter such type of variable.

    Thanks for the help.

  2. Browser support for CSS-only styling drop down select boxes is limited. See this discussion:

    Regarding issue 2, can you please explain in more detail how this will work? Please define client. There is a visitor who submits a form, then there are admin notifications and user notifications. Can you explain how you want this to work and where the email addresses will come from? Thank you.

    On the admin notifications I want one email address to be notified if they choose dropdown A and another email to be notified if they choose dropdown B.

    In regards to part one. So am I reading that I can not style the hover color of a dropdown menu with the exception of it in chrome? This doesn't make much sense to me. Where is the styling coming from in the first place? Somewhere it has to tell it to use the color blue. My client is not going to be very happy if I say "I can't do that". Is this a gravity forms limitations?

    Thanks again

  5. This is a browser limitation, not a Gravity Forms limitation. There are many discussions online of browser support for styling the drop down select box. The style that you see is provided by the browser for that type of form element. The file select dialog is another type of form input you largely have no control over.

    There are JavaScript solutions out there to control the style of form elements completely, but the limitations in styling those elements come from the browser, not from Gravity Forms.
