    How can I change the colour of one cell in a table?

    Asked by gymfuse on July 17, 2017 at 10:00 AM

    Hi guys,


    I have a list of products (size/colour in a table).


    I want to mark one option as out of stock.


    Is this possible, if so, how?

    I cloned your form, and modified it. You can see it here:



    Now to answer your question.

    You can use CSS. First you need to get the field ID:

    #1. Select a table

    #2. Click on properties (gear icon)

    #3. On the advanced tab, click on field details. You will see all the id's appear for the table.



    Then you need to use custom CSS:

    #4. Select and copy the field you want to change

    #5. Paste the id in the box and add the code to style the field:



    background-color: yellow !important;


    Or, if you would like to disable the field (so the user cant type anything in) add this CSS: 



    display: none !important;


    So it will look like this:


    #6. Remember to click the green save button!
