    You can use basic html to change autoscrolling text color. Example:

    <div style="color:white">

    Hello World!

    This is my autoscrolling text.



    About the second function, unfortunately that's not just possible with framed widgets. You may consider using Preview Before Submit Widget instead.


    Hope this helps!

    That's not possible as of the moment since that requires CSS Injection on that particular widget to change the border color. However, I have raised this as a feature request so we can go beyond the limit of customizing this widget.

    You will be informed here once this is implemented.

    The widget has been updated with a Custom CSS configuration box. 

    You can now customize elements of the widget, including the border. 

    For Example, this custom CSS will change the border color to black: 

    #textContainer {

    border: 1px solid #000000;


    Here is the form with the border color changed to black: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41881213307954?

    Please give it a try and let us know if you would like further assistance.
