    How do I change the background of a dropdown?

    Asked by TGPForms on June 09, 2017 at 01:44 PM

    I would like to change the drop down menu color from the redish brown it currently is to RBG #ACACAC. I cannot seem to find where I can change it. This form was originally copied from a Jotform template and I am thinking there is some properties that were inherited from it that I cannot see or change.

    In order to apply the change you have in mind, please inject this custom CSS code into your form:

    #input_11>option {

        background-color : #acacac;


    I can see that you are already familiar with how to inject custom CSS code into the form, but for completeness here is our guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    I have also created a corrected form in case you would like to examine it or clone ithttps://form.jotformpro.com/71595861568977

    I hope this helps. If you need further assistance please let us know. Thank you.
