    Can I change the backround highlight color on a checkbox field?

    Asked by jason1129 on November 20, 2013 at 05:54 PM

    If you look at my form on this page - http://www.omniboxtv.com/#!untitled/c15ew

    If you click on the text in the service "requested field", it highlights the backround and you can't see the text.

    Any solution?

    There are 2 ways you can do this.

    1. If the highlight color is not required, you can just disable it. Use the numbered image below for guidance on how to do in the form builder.

    2. You can inject CSS code in your form to change the highlight color. This guide explains the different CSS code to customize the fields in the form Customize-your-Form-using-Custom-CSS-Codes

    Specifically, this part of the guide is what you need


    Changing the Yellow Highlight Effect Color

    Does this still work in the updated version?

    I tried using it, but the colour is still yellow.
