After being sick of how ugly select boxes are within forms, I looked hard to find a decent solution. There are a few but some of them I found to have bugs, or not be able to use icons within the custom select box as I would like.

It was necessary to have it able to degrade to the regular select box when a user does not use javascript, and from what I’ve seen i have achieved that also.

It is still in its early stages and I will tweak it some more when i get the chance, but let me know what you think.

Just include the jquery and jquery.customselect in your head, and include your custom styles.

<script src="../scripts/jquery-1.2.6.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="../scripts/jquery.customselect.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Then make a call for the customselect

<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
 $(document).ready(function() {  $(\\\\\'#customselector\\\\\').customSelect();  })
// ]]></script>

Lastly put in the select box with a few minor variations.
