I can apply skin to txtbox, but on dropdownlist it won't work. I am not sure why?


From Skinfile

asp:TextBox runat="server" SkinID="txtcity" ForeColor="Blue"></asp:TextBox>
<asp:DropDownList runat ="server" SkinID ="ddlstate" Forecolor ="Red"></asp:DropDownList>


aspx page

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlstate" runat="server" Width="100px" TabIndex="9" Enabled="false" SkinID="ddlstate">
<asp:TextBox ID="txtCity" runat="server" Width="360px" TabIndex="8" MaxLength="30" ReadOnly="true" SkinID="txtcity"></asp:TextBox>

This works ok, created a theme "Theme1" added a SkinFile "SkinFile1.skin"
Contents of Skinfile1.skin:
<asp:DropDownList runat="server" BackColor="Blue" ForeColor="Red" SkinId="dropdownlistBlue" />

Open in new window

Page sample:
<%@ Page Language="VB" title="MyGridview" EnableTheming="true" Theme="Theme1"%>

<!DOCTYPE html>

<script runat="server">

</script>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:DropDownList SkinID="dropdownlistBlue" ID="DropDownList1" runat="server">
            <asp:ListItem></asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem Value="1">Choice 1</asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem Value="2">Choice 2</asp:ListItem>
        </asp:DropDownList>

Hi VBdotnet2005,
couldn't find a way to change the forecolor for a disabled dropdownlist, backcolor, no problem.

The skinfile can have a CssClass, the CssClass can address styling for enabled and disabled.
Skinfile:
<asp:DropDownList runat="server" CssClass="styled-select" SkinId="dropdownlistBlue" />

Open in new window

Sample .aspx page styling dropdownlist, enabled and disabled:
<%@ Page Language="VB" title="MyDrowdownList" EnableTheming="true" Theme="Theme1"%>

<!DOCTYPE html>


<script runat="server">

    Protected Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        Me.DropDownList1.Enabled = Not Me.DropDownList1.Enabled
    End Sub
</script>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
    <style type="text/css">

        .styled-select:enabled, .styled-select:disabled {
            background: transparent;
            color:black;
            background-color:yellow;
            width: 268px;
            padding: 5px;
            font-size: 16px;
            line-height: 1;
            border: 0;
            border-radius: 0;
            height: 34px;
            -webkit-appearance: none;
        }
        .styled-select:disabled {
            background-color:greenyellow;
            color:dimgray;
        }
 


    </style>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:DropDownList CssClass="styled-select" ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" >
            <asp:ListItem></asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem Value="1">Choice 1</asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem Value="2">Choice 2</asp:ListItem>
        </asp:DropDownList>
        <br /><br />
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Toggle dropdown enabled" OnClick="Button1_Click" />


    </div>
    </form>
