Description Chris Petersen 2006-07-11 00:57:31 PDT
We need to support background-color property on native popup (select) menus. Hotels.com does use thebackground-color  property on their web site for select elements (see screen shot)

I have created a small reduction of the page which uses the two CSS rules:

style="background-color: rgb(204, 0, 0); color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"

The text appears as white on the native popup (correct) but background-color is ignored (bad).
This test case renders correctly in Mac FF

repurposing this bug to represent the work for both color and background-color, since we need to do both at once so the popup menus don't look weird.

This bug is probably fixed.

Looks like WebKit still doesn't support this (as of rev. 44591). Our application uses dropdowns of two types - one with options of different "background-color"; another - with options of different "background-image", where value of background-image is data url. "background-color" works in at least Firefox (3.x) and Opera (10b).

Could someone give an update on the status of this ticket? Are there plans on implementing it?

Thank you.

This is a general issue, not only happens on MAC.
Comment 11 Moritz Spindelhirn 2010-06-08 10:48:14 PDT
Can someone make a comment to this ?

I think at least the properties named in the titel should work ...
Comment 12 Julien Dumont 2010-06-23 01:17:05 PDT
This bug is still not fixed, and impact all webkit version.
Somebody can handle it because there is nothing on it since very very long time ... ?


Comment 13 Andrew Benton 2010-08-13 08:56:25 PDT
Is anybody actually working on this? Seems like a quick fix wouldn't be that hard and the bug's been around for four years?!
Comment 14 Julien Dumont 2010-08-16 01:54:21 PDT
No news on it ...
Another issue seems to be related to this one, and there is no reply on it since 2007 ...

Works for me on QtWebKit. Shall I close this bug?

> Works for me on QtWebKit. Shall I close this bug?

It's working for me too but only from QT 4.8 beta version.
QT.4.7.X version still seems to be impacted. 

I think maybe it will better to close this bug only when the offical Qt 4.8 version will be release, if you agree of course :)

This is a bug about Mac OS X port, filed long before Qt WebKit port was even started. Please don't close it because of Qt changes.
