Hi,

May I know how can I control the input box text vertical alignment to middle?

I could so something like this in the CSS to make the text align center, but, I can't find the way for text vertical alignment.
 
    text-align:center;


Please advice.

Hello Ching-Yen,

Theoretically, you can align vertically some text inside a textbox by using the following CSS properties:

height
font-size
line-height
padding-top
padding-bottom

However, in order to achieve a cross-browser consistent look, I recommend using only font-size and padding.

The vertical-align CSS property is of no use in this case, because it will align the textbox itself, not the text inside it.

Let us know if you need more information.


All the best,
