How to center text in dropdown menu on form block (on mobile)

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone can help me centre the text on my dropdown menu inside the form block on mobile?

I am currently using the following code which works on desktop but not mobile:


.form-wrapper .field-list .field select {
     text-align: center;



I tried adjusting it to mobile by adding:

@media only screen and (max-width:768px) 

but that didn't work either.

Thank you!

Select menus are difficult to style because browsers hand off the menu display to the computer operating system.

Oh sorry I made a mistake. To be clear, it isnt the drop down menu I want to center. I only want to center the first text before clicking on it. See screenshot

It appears you solved the issue?

No, I havent.

It currently works only desktop but on mobile and tablet, the text is still on the left.

I want it to be centered

I see what you mean. I don't have a solution.

For anyone else looking into this issue. I observed that the text is centered on DevTools mobile emulator. Not surprising as the emulator is not perfect. On iOS/Safari the text is left aligned.
