Chevron parameters, dropdown list/Hint colour in a text field



Here's today's double whammy - two questions/suggestions realted to GUI building.


Is there a way to change the width/character of the chevron in a drop down list? See the screen dump - the chevron takes up a lot of the width of the field.


Is there a way to change the Hint text colour? In the example below it's too bright and might get confused with actual data entered.

It can't be that difficult to add an extra control for Chevron Width.

Definitely looking for hint text color. I have an app where you can fill in new inventory and incoming inventory, and I display the current inventory and incoming inventory as hint text in the input boxes. I would love to make them easier to read, and also change the color depending on the value (red font for low quantities, green font for high quantities).

Was just working on an app and wanted to change the color of the hint text so it "pops" a little more when it appeared.

Yes to being able to change the hint text/input text placeholder colour. I want to be able to change the fill of my datacardvalue and have it still meet accessibility standards.

Please add in the hint color option. We use a darker background and have had to add a label on top of the search box to accommodate for this.
