Multiple Selection Widget Change Colour of Selected Options

    Asked on September 20, 2017 at 09:18 AM


    I'm trying to create contact form that has a multiple selection for customers to select the location that they would like to enquire about.

    At the moment any options that are selected are blue, I would like to change the color of them.

    I know this can possibly done through CSS. I added few CSS injections that I found online, but none of them worked. 

    Would anyone be able to help on this, please?

    Thanks a mill,

    It's possible to change the background color with some CSS code, please replace everything that says green with your color on the following code: 

    .selectize-control.multi .selectize-input [data-value] {

        background-color: green;

        background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top,green,green);

        background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear,0 0,0 100%,from(green),to(green));

        background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(top,green,green);

        background-image: -o-linear-gradient(top,green,green);

        background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom,green,green);


    .selectize-control.multi .selectize-input>div {

         background: green;

        color: #fff;

        border: 1px solid green;


    .selectize-control.multi .selectize-input [data-value].active{

      background-color: green;


      background-image:-webkit-gradient(linear,0 0,0 100%,from(green),to(green));



      background-image:linear-gradient(to bottom,green,green);

      background-repeat:repeat-x;filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='green', endColorstr='green', GradientType=0)



    This will need to be injected to the widget, this guide will help you doing it: 

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Kevin,

    Thanks a mill, that helped a lot. I was trying to copy parts of the code from google (when you right click on the element-->inspect) you get the css code however I didn't copy all of it as you did above.

    This was a massive help,

    Thank you very much
