    how can I change the font color on a Widget area - upload area - hint text

    Asked by bearcreekchurch on April 11, 2017 at 10:43 PM

    my form is https://form.jotform.com/61395632100144

    I am using a widget -"upload" widget.

    There is an area that is used to "Drag and Drop" files to upload

    The HINT TEXT color - - "Drag and Drop Files Here" is much to light a color as is the broken line border around the upload area.

    I mainly want to change the color - darken the color - on the Hint  "Drag and Drop Files Here"

    How can I do that?  Is it possible?


    Also, is it possible to darken the color of the border around the file upload area??

    This can be done by adding the custom css for the widget as shown in the screenshot below :

    Add the following code in the custom css of the widget :

     div#holder {

        color: #000!important;


    Hope this helps.
