    CSS styling

    Asked by systematic on November 26, 2013 at 05:30 AM

    Dear Jotform

    i would like to style a number of forms on a clients website with css. I have pulled the code into dreamweaver which seemed to have limited inline style and noticed the main CSS sheet is held remotely. I copied this code to a new style sheet and attached to my HTML doc but I am struggling with finding the right selectors.

    Using a plain form I would like to;

    use a webfont

    change input box border width, border colour and add a rounded corner

    Please can you advise how I can find the correct selectors so that I can adjust?

    Many thanks

    Thanks for your reply. 

    to do it this way I need to know the class names, which I don't? How do you recommend I proceed if I want to;

    round box corners

    add inner shadow

    change border width and colour

    Thanks again
