The jquery.nucombo plugin can be used to style <select> elements, as the existing HTML <select> element has limited CSS styling options.

It is fully compatible with the ASP.NET DropDownList control and integrates fully with the ASP.NET page cycle and AJAX.

$(SELECTER).nucombo("remove"); <== removes nucombo
$("select").nucombo(); <== all dropdowns on page
Requirements and setup:
  • Add a script reference to jquery 1.4.x or more [download]
  • Add a script reference to jquery.nucombo.js [download]
  • Add a stylesheet reference to jquery.nucombo.css [download]
Edit the CSS stylesheet to adapt the control to fit in with the look of your page.
