    I need to globally set a class on the combobox dropdown arrow

    ...but there's no public css property to do that right?  There's one for the control, the dropdown list, the input, and the label....but no button.

    So I'm looking for a skinnable property, not a workaround to inherit from he control or parse the dom with jquery, or do any codebehind.  There's too many comobs to just go around updating all the code in every page (hoping to just leverage a .skin file)

    Yes, no?...could you add one?

    Hi Steve

    I suppose you want to set a css class for the combobox dropdown arrow.
    Try the following CSS
    <style type="text/css">
    .RadComboBox_Default .rcbInputCell, .RadComboBox_Default .rcbArrowCell
    background-image: url('./Images/urdropdownimage') !important;

    Hey Princy,
      No I'm trying to use font-awesome so I need to set the **CLASS**...not style a class :)

    Like I need to tell the arrow to be "icon-caret-down" without using any javascript or anything else.  Most controls support this like the RadInputs, I can set the ButtonCssClass to like "icon-search" in the .Skin file, but the RadCombo seems to have not exposed the button class.

    Hi, Steve.

    Unfortunately, that's not available as of now. In fact this is the first such request we are having. The show more results arrow (down caret) is rendered as is with no logic applied and it can not be overridden.

    I completely understand your point -- to use font for icons and it's a valid point.

    Yet without any modifications, just from the API attributes that can not be done.

    We are almost at the 2013 Q1 release, so such addition will be impossible, yet we could consider it for a future update.
