CSS to align submit button next to select box

I wish to align the select button "Save" next to the Select box.

So I have tried adding

#block-commerce-multicurrency-currency-selector {
      float: left;
      display: inline;
}

to the Style.css sheet
I am relatively new to CSS and, this code generated by Drupal, is making it just that much more complicated. I am really not sure which id, class to pick, the CSS syntax and whether float: left; display:inline; will do the trick.


Thanks for your help, Neil

Hey there, welcome to the CSS party. CSS with Drupal can be stressful enough to cause gray hair...that is, until you "get" what Drupal is trying to do ;) After that it's incredible what you can do.

That aside, I'm not seeing a select box in the code that Drupal generated (and you copied in here). However, if I put one in (see attached code that I dropped into a page), and the select box is in the same position, then you already have it. Or at least it's working here.

I'm also attaching a screenshot of what it looks like in my browsers. I tried both Chrome and Firefox on the Mac.

If you're still having issues with the CSS, do you have a live example that we can look at? I know that's iffy, but it really might be the best way to solve it.

Cheers,

Mike

Thank you junipllc .. of course your code worked but when I added it to style.css

and then another try

#block-commerce-multicurrency-currency-selector {
      width:200px;
      height:100px;
      float:left;
      display:inline;
}

nothing changed ?? What am I missing?

Actually I would like to get rid of the submit button all together and trigger the change in currency simply by changing the select box.

I have the question pending at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/PHP/Q_27316501.html

Thank you, Neil

<div class="form-item form-type-select form-item-selected-currency"> was set to display:block

So this did the trick

#block-commerce-multicurrency-currency-selector {
float:left;
}
.form-item-selected-currency {
      display:inline;
}

Thanks again for your help (and it would great if you could help now get rid of the submit button altogether)

Cheers, Neil

That one's easy, but then how would you submit the form? ;)

Try this:

#edit-save-selected-currency {
display: none;
}

or, if it works for your layout since it's better for SEO:


#edit-save-selected-currency {
margin-left: -9999px;
}

Cheers,

Please see the question I have pending at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/PHP/Q_27316501.html
