How to add CSS custom right arrow?

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Is using a CSS custom right arrow for select and dropdown menu, and everything working great, but the arrow on the right does not look like i want, i would like it to be wider.

So am thinking of setting background-image property in CSS (displayed default down arrow instead), but have no idea how doing that.

You can set the size and width of the arrow. You can use the background image property by using

Content: url ('some_path.png');

Or you can resize your image, save it and encode it in base 64 format and use it as:-

Content: url (data: image/png; base64, CAYAAAC3mX7tAAAACXBIWXMAAAsTAAALEwAA);

Encoding an image to base 64 can be done here-

Hi Fernando W Alvarez,

In CSS there are few types of background property, you can use the color background property and image background property. For the better, I show you both ways, you will choose your best,

Background-color property

Body {background-color: #b0c4de;}

Background Image

Body {background-image: url ('paper.gif');}

Background Image – Repeat Horizontally or Vertically

Body {background-image: url ('gradient2.png');}

Background Image – Set position and no-repeat

Body {background-image: url ('img_tree.png');background-repeat:no-repeat;}

Background – Shorthand property

Body {background: #ffffff url ('img_tree.png') no-repeat right top;}

Thanks for asking
