    Change Background Color of a Selected Field

    Asked by Dingram on July 08, 2013 at 02:21 PM

    I Made my form's background color black with white text, but now when you go through the form the selected area's text is not visible, can I change the background color of the selected area?


    Thank you

    Yes you can change the color of the selected field. In order for you to change the color background of the selected field, you will need to inject a custom css in your form styles by going to your form builder Setup & Embed -> Preferences -> Form Styles.


    Then add the code below 

    .form-line-active {

    You can remove the color line although if you want to keep the color of yout text to be white, you should keep that line. For additional instruction on how to inject custom css in your form, click here.
