    Form submit button cursor pointer not working...

    Asked by kensturgeon on August 01, 2011 at 03:47 PM

    Under the setup and embed tab you can now add user defined CSS to the preferences.

    Hoping to make the submit button display the hand cursor when hovered over, but no luck.

    Here's the CSS I added:

    .form-submit-button {

    Any reason why?

    Hi Patrick,

    First off, I'd like to say that you're doing a great job in customizing your form.

    Anyway, to solve your problem, increase the height and width of your submit button to fully accommodate the image you used for it.

    height: 148px;
    width: 281px;

    Let us know how this works for you. Get back to us if you're still experiencing any problems. Thanks!

    I too am having the similar problem. I've added my own submit button but when my mouse hovers over the button the mouse button doesn't change to a hand pointer. Is there any way to make it change to a hand pointer without jumping into the CSS code?

    If not, I think I could hash my way through the code but I'm not very confident with CSS yet.

    Hi englipedia_eigo,

    To add CSS to your form that will change the cursor when pointed on the submit button, just navigate to your form builder, and click "Preferences" under "Setup & Embed" tab.


    And insert the following code in the "Inject Custom CSS" under "Form Styles" tab.


     .form-submit-button {
    cursor:pointer;  }
