    Background Color Change

    Asked by mdicare on December 18, 2013 at 03:45 PM

    The background colour is #0099CB, so maybe can we edit the form to be either transparent when you are typing, etc., or that blue colour (#0099CB).

    Thanks a lot.

    You can disable the highlight color effect on your form preferences. Here's how: 

    However, if what you want is to change it's color, use the following CSS codes and inject it to your form.

    .form-line-active {

    background: #000;


    Just replace #000 (black) with your color preference or this #0099CB as you mentioned. Here's how to inject this code to your form: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    Hope this helps. Thank!
