    To change the background color of the label in the Long Text Entry on your form,  find the ID of the label and add the CSS code for the background color for example:

     background: yellow;


    Here's the sample CSS code to inject your form to change the background-color of the Long Text Entry:

    #label_65 {

        background-color: yellow;



    #label_66 {

        background-color: yellow;
