    I am currently using the MetroBlack theme. I have a pop-up window that is all black, and it has a combo box inside of it. But the box is all white which does not look correct to me.

    <select id="liveServer" class="comboStyle">

    If I set the background color to pure black, to match the rest, then I loose the (v) down-arrow icon (it is also black) so I have resorted to this CSS, which makes is a dark grey backgrond and white text. But something tells me that the theme should be doing this automatically. What am I missing?


    .comboStyle {
        font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
        font-size: 16px;
        padding: 4px 7px;
        color: #ffffff;
        background-color: #404040;

    Hi Yechezkal,

    I tested a ComboBox in Kendo UI Window with MetroBlack theme and it is rendered as expected (dojo). Could you please modify my example and demonstrate your exact setup - this way I would be able to check what exactly is going wrong and provide concrete recommendations? Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    Mine is inside a pop-up window. Perhaps that is the issue. I will look into updating the Dojo, but it could be timing w.r.t to when the window is created, and that might not be reproducable in DOJO. 


    Right now, I do the setup on document load, and I am creating the combo box before I create the enclosing window. Works ok fo rthe button in the window. but not the combo box.
