    Hi Mandar,

    Yes, you should be able to change the red warning color. Which one would you like to change?

    The field background color? or the border color? or the background color of the text that says "This field is required" ? Please let us know.

    For the Field Background Color, you can use the following custom CSS codes:

    .form-line-error {

    background: yellow !important;



    For the border color:

    .form-line-error {

    border: 1px solid yellow !important;

    -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 3px yellow !important;

    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 3px yellow !important;

    box-shadow: 0 0 3px yellow !important;



    For the background color of the required message:

    .form-line-error .form-error-message {

    background: yellow !important;


    .form-error-arrow {

    border-bottom-color: yellow !important;



    Change yellow to any color you want. You can also use Hex Codes. Inject the custom CSS codes to your form by following this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes
