I'm trying to format the following drop down in my MVC project with rounded edge. Please see screen shot.

I'm a little lost  on where to insert some css style and how to write it.

Drop Down...
That is my mvc code bellow:

  <div class="form-inline">
            @*Find by Last Name or First Name: @Html.TextBox("SearchString", ViewBag.CurrentFilter as String, new { style = "width:200px", @class = "form-control" })*@

            Department/Location: @Html.DropDownList("DeptList","All")
            @Html.TextBox("SearchString", ViewBag.CurrentFilter as String, new { style = "width:300px", @class = "form-control", placeholder = "Find by Last Name or First Name:" }) 

            <input type="submit" value="Search" class="btn btn-default" />
         
        </div>

Open in new window

Generally speaking, you wouldn't add style tags to your elements--you would add CSS rules to a stylesheet, and import that styleseet to the page (generally via a bundle). What look are you trying to achieve? Something similar to the textbox? If so, only a handful of the current browsers allow you to style a list/combo box. Usually IE is the offender, but perhaps the newest editions of IE let you. You may need to use an alternative form of listbox provided by JQuery or some other such library.
