How to remove the arrows from input[type="number"] in Opera


This question already has an answer here:


I've been using some simple CSS and it seems to remove them and work fine.

input[type=number]::-webkit-outer-spin-button { 
    -webkit-appearance: none;
    -moz-appearance: none;
    appearance: none;
    margin: 0; 
<input type="number" step="0.01"/>

Those arrows are part of the Shadow DOM, which are basically DOM elements on your page which are hidden from you. If you're new to the idea, a good introductory read can be found here.

For the most part, the Shadow DOM saves us time and is good. But there are instances, like this question, where you want to modify it.

You can modify these in Webkit now with the right selectors, but this is still in the early stages of development. The Shadow DOM itself has no unified selectors yet, so the webkit selectors are proprietary (and it isn't just a matter of appending -webkit, like in other cases).

Because of this, it seems likely that Opera just hasn't gotten around to adding this yet. Finding resources about Opera Shadow DOM modifications is tough, though. A few unreliable internet sources I've found all say or suggest that Opera doesn't currently support Shadow DOM manipulation.

I spent a bit of time looking through the Opera website to see if there'd be any mention of it, along with trying to find them in Dragonfly...neither search had any luck. Because of the silence on this issue, and the developing nature of the Shadow DOM + Shadow DOM manipulation, it seems to be a safe conclusion that you just can't do it in Opera, at least for now.

There is no way.

This question is basically a duplicate of Is there a way to hide the new HTML5 spinbox controls shown in Google Chrome & Opera? but maybe not a full duplicate, since the motivation is given.

If the purpose is “browser's awareness of the content being purely numeric”, then you need to consider what that would really mean. The arrows, or spinners, are part of making numeric input more comfortable in some cases. Another part is checking that the content is a valid number, and on browsers that support HTML5 input enhancements, you might be able to do that using the pattern attribute. That attribute may also affect a third input feature, namely the type of virtual keyboard that may appear.

For example, if the input should be exactly five digits (like postal numbers might be, in some countries), then <input type="text" pattern="[0-9]{5}"> could be adequate. It is of course implementation-dependent how it will be handled.
