    How to remove the highlighting effect?

    Asked by Webteam00 on December 15, 2016 at 12:01 PM


    I'm building a form with a background image and somehow when I click into a box, the whole block turns pale yellow? Then if I click into another box without typing the whole block turns red. This makes the whole page look off.

    Can I turn these off or change them into boxes that are limited to just around the text boxes? I have tried a few things with the CSS but nothing seems to be doing it.

    Please add this custom CSS code:


    .form-line-error, .form-line-active {
        background-color: transparent !important;


    For completeness, even though I noticed that you're quite familiar with injecting custom CSS codes, here's out tutorial on how to do that: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes
