the combobox's style is kindof strange. I'm not sure why its layout was designed th way it was, buy I've created a look more typical to other dropdowns

it includes a style and an image


input.dojoComboBoxInput {
	/* font-size: 0.8em; */
	border: 0px;

.dojoComboBoxOptions {
	font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Garamond, sans-serif;
	/* font-size: 0.7em; */
	background-color: white;
	border: 1px solid #afafaf;
	position: absolute;
	z-index: 1000; 
	overflow: auto;
	-moz-opacity: 0;
	cursor: default;

table.dojoComboBox {	
	border: 1px solid #afafaf;
	border-collapse: collapse;

table.dojoComboBox img{

.dojoComboBoxItem {
	padding-left: 0px;
	padding-top: 0px;
	margin: 0px;

.dojoComboBoxItemEven {
	background-color: #f4f4f4;

.dojoComboBoxItemOdd {
	background-color: white;

.dojoComboBoxItemHighlight {
	background-color: #63709A;
	color: white;

also, I changed the dimentions of the button graphic to 15px/20px (src/widget/templates/images/combo_box_arrow.png)

now your combobox won't get picked on by the other select boxes for looking different.

rheaghen - we need you to sign a CLA before accepting patches.

In any case, Torrey is designing the theme for our UI so it's up to him what it looks like.

Whoa''' this is the first time this has ever happened. I've never been an active contributor of any project before, as this is only my third year as a developer. I would be happy to comply with your requests. could you please provide more specifics? Do you have access to my email? Should I just be logging in as guest?

Ok... I'll fax in the icla tomorrow morning. note: added the button graphic to illustrate the need for a different shaped button. if you'd lik eit to match the old design, I'd be happy to make that happen.

not really an enhancement, so changing status so that it can still make it into 0.4

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Updates made recently seem to fix this issue. For the moment we will keep the current graphic for the arrow but I'll save this one as I really like it and it could become part of a new theme we do for 0.5
