CSS Question

Inline elements within bootstrap selectpicker dropdown

My fiddle is here. It is based on answers to this post.

Current selectpicker

It is a simple selectpicker with icons instead of text.

I'd like users to be able to select an icon from a list. However, since there is a large number of very small icons, I'd like to have them display in a 2D table/grid/matrix within the dropdown (currently it shows one icon per row) . The number of columns within the table should scale based on the page width.

I picture it as a simple

with icons instead of colors.

I'm willing to use a different control, if not a
bootstrap-selectpicker
.

Answer

Here's an example using Bootstrap-Select: change the dropdown-menu list to display inline-block while removing the float. Then you can set a width and any other styling you may need.

Working Example:

$('select').selectpicker();
.bootstrap-select .dropdown-menu {
  padding: 5px;
}
.bootstrap-select .dropdown-menu > li {
  position: relative;
  display: inline-block;
  float: none;
  text-align: center;
  width: 20%;
}
@media (min-width: 768px) {
  .bootstrap-select .dropdown-menu > li {
    width: 10%;
  }
  .bootstrap-select .dropdown-menu > li > a {
    font-size: 22px;
  }
}
