    Different background for Edit

    Asked by guest_23400329241037 on December 06, 2012 at 12:58 AM

    Hello Support:

    I have the background of my form set to 'transparent'.  When a user clicks on the Edit Link to change his/her responses, the form displays in isolation for editing and resubmission, as it should.

    However, I wind up with a transparent form on white.  Considering our styling, that yields and Edit form with very low contrast.

    Is there a way to style the Edit form separately?  If I could simply have my form's background set to 'transparent' for site-embed purposes, and, say, 'black' for editing purposes under your roof, that would be great.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for your enquiry.

    Presently, the only way I can think of around that would be to style the form in the form builder as it should appear on the edit page (it's JotForm URL). The form's full source would then have to be embedded into your web page (http://www.cgpaint.com/contact.html) and the CSS altered there to suit that page. It might be possible to override the form's CSS with that of your web page if the default embed code (the short code) is used but I would have to run some tests.

    However, I will submit a ticket to see if it's possible to have a feature in the form builder that would allow users to set separate styles for the initial form and that displayed at the edit link.

    If you need further assitance with this, we'd be happy to help.

    Thank you for your reply.  If you are able to take some time at some point to test your idea, please let me know the results.

    Otherwise, I'll wait for the feature to be incorporated into a future release.

    Thank you.
