Right, so I spent several hours yesterday trying to figure out why I couldn’t adjust the height on my HTML form select elements. I was utterly bamboozled after stripping out all inherited CSS and playing around with the web inspector. The problem?
You can’t adjust the height of a select element if it has no border.
There’s probably a very good reason for this but my gripe is that it’s not visibly apparent that the select dropdown is borderless in the first place.
Anyway, hopefully this will save someone a little time further down the road.
