    Cannot set the background colour of my submit button.

    Although I've set the background colour using the 'Select background colour' tool, it does not change. How can I do this please?

    Hello,

    I have cloned your form andwas able to change the background color of your submit button.

     

    In order to change the color of your button background kindly follow the steps below.

    1. Click the Submit Button you have added.

    2. Click Button Style on top properties.

     

    3. Choose from the Button Gallery and then

    4. Click Finish.

     

    Now you will be able to see the changes.

    Kindly let us know if problem persists and if you need further assistance, but as I have tested the clone of your form, I was able to change it.

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    Hello,

    In addition to my response, can I clarify that is it your form submit button you are pertaining or this one?

     

    I am afraid I was not able to change the color on the test form/clone form I have on my end.

    Even I re-create the line with different color, it is not quite possible.

    The work-around I can think of is to put a custom button using the image tool and link it to the site you wanted to be redirected to.

     

    Kindly let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    Hello. It's the Thank You form (that's displayed after pressing Submit) for which I can't set the background colour. The tool has no effect (for me) on the (Thank You) page.

    I have no need to change the button colour, thanks.

    Hello,

    There is no option on the tools to change the background color.

    However, since you can customize the HTML codes within the editor, you can add tags for you to have a background color for the thank you page.

    Kindly click the HTML tool along with the formatting tools.

     

    Now the codes will show-up.

    Insert the following tags on the HTML source editor

    <div style="width: 100%; height: 100%; background-color: red; text-align: center;">

     

    You may simply change the value of the color from the code I have provided you. (From red, to your desired color)

     

    Then click Update, now you will be ble to see the background color of your thank you page.

     

    Kindly let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you. :)
