    How to disable field highlighting?

    Asked by cheesewake136 on May 23, 2017 at 06:40 PM



    Two Issues.


    1. When you click on the desired field to input your information I am seeing that it highlights and it makes it hard to read. I have disabled the error options and the highlight options but it still shows. 


    2. Also, the form seems to be hanging when you hit send. What could be causing this?


    Thanks in advance,

    1. Try to add a custom CSS on your form to remove the highlights, in order for it to be readable. 

    .form-line.form-line-active {

        background : none !important;

        background-color : transparent !important;



    .form-line.form-line-column.form-col-1.jf-required.form-line-error {

        background : none !important;

        background-color : transparent !important;



    2. The reason why the submit button is not working is because. the allow-form permission is not set in your iframe code. Try to add this attribute in your iframe code. 


    iframe sandbox="allow-same-origin allow-scripts allow-popups allow-forms"

    Hello Chris,

    #1. I did check your form and found that the "Highlighting Effect" is still enabled in your form. Thous you have injected custom css code shared by @williamralloma which has solved your issue but you also disable the "Highlighting Effect" from your form's settings page. Please check the screenshot below:


    #2. It seems you have solved the second issue as well. I was able to submit your embedded form successfully and thank you message was also displayed. 

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
