    How to change color within form fields themselves

    Asked by jpmiller on February 04, 2013 at 02:13 PM

    We have built a couple of forms and like them.

    How can I change the background color only within the form fields themselves?  I have an "E-Mail Us" form at the bottom of a page on our site, and it has a medium blue color within the form fields, making it hard to distinguish what the person has typed.

    Is there a tool or an option where we can try other colors?

    You can inject custom css in to your form in order to change the color of text box. Please take a look at this clone form of yours. http://www.jotformpro.com/form/30346161353951

    If you like what I did, feel free to inject this codes in to your form.

    .form-textbox, .form-textarea {

    background: #FFF;

    border: 2px solid #ABCADB;

    color: #000;
