    How to inject custom CSS codes to the form and create ID for specific HTML elements

    Asked by cateringonline on April 23, 2013 at 07:12 AM


    I have several text areas that need custom CSS. At present I create HTML free text areas & customise them from there. This is tedious as I need to apply the format globally across all my forms.

    I tried using inline css in the free text area which didn't work. I also tried injecting it in the "set-up & embed" section. that didn't work either. I must be doing something not right.

    I'd prefer if I can inject the code in the "set-up & embed" section.

    Here's one of the codes I tried:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    {color:#ff0000;font-family:helvetica; font-size:18;}

    <p id="MenuName">Test Menu $8 Per Pax (Min 30 Pax)</p>


    Thank you

    Yes, it is possible to inject custom css codes to your form. Just use CSS codes only, example from your codes:

    After that, use Free Text HTML Tool and paste the paragraph code on the HTML box found on the upper toolbar.

    If you need further clarification or help with the styles, just let us know. Thank you!
