    the HEX color chooser must've updated and no longer allows you to type in Transparent.

    Asked by hbcreative on February 13, 2013 at 06:31 PM

    Same issue as blacktiemultimedia. I believe the HEX color chooser must've updated and no longer allows you to type in Transparent. Any suggestions?

    Stephen,

    As a workaround, please inject the following CSS:

    html, body, .form-all {
    background: transparent !important;
    }

    or just

    .form-all {
    background: transparent !important;
    }

    depending on your purposes. (You'll notice that the former affects not just the form but the form builder too!)

    Stephen,

    It should now be possible to enter "transparent" in the color picker. Please test it out and let us know if you find any problem.

    Best regards

    Not sure what you did to fix it but once again it is doing the same thing. I type in Transp and as soon as I type the "a" next it goes to #000000 all black I need it fixed again

    @Larry5000,

    I did a test on my own form and I did the background into transparent. You can follow this guide on how to transparent your background. http://www.jotform.com/help/87-Making-the-Form-Background-Transparent

     

    or try copy this word "transparent" into the color picker, make sure you highlighted the old background color and paste the word "transparent".

    Hope this help!

    Thanks.

    @Everyone

    Attempting to enter Transparent instead of transparent will trigger the black background issue to which Larry5000 has referred. Please see this thread for details.


    Thanks
