Include attribute data-mini = "true" for creating mini version custom select menu. It is useful in toolbars and tight spaces for more compact version.


Following example demonstrates the use of mini sized custom selectmenu in the jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>

      <h2>Selectmenu mini sized Example</h2>
      <div class = "ui-field-contain">
         <label for = "select-custom">Custom Select</label>
         <select id = "select-custom" data-native-menu = "false" data-mini = "true">
            <option value = "mu">Mumbai</option>
            <option value = "pu">Pune</option>
            <option value = "be">Belgaum</option>
            <option value = "ch">Chennai</option>
            <option value = "ban">Bangalore</option>
