    Hint Color not changing in text box field

    Asked by destinyandlight on July 21, 2014 at 08:27 AM

    Hello,

    I would like for the hint/label color in the text box fields to be the same color as the hint/label color of the Text area input.

    I've tried all of the following:

     

    .form-dropdown, .form-textarea, .form-textbox{

    color:#FAEBD7 !important;

    }

    .form-textbox {

    background: #b09b82;

    color: #FAEBD7;

    height: 25px !important;

    width: 400px !important;

    -webkit-input-placeholder {color:#FAEBD7;}:-moz-placeholder {color:#FAEBD7;}

    }

    .form-textarea {

    background: #b09b82;

    color: #FAEBD7;

    }

     

    However, as you will see the color in the text-box area is this dark, very hard to read, grey color.  What else needs to be adjusted here to make this work as it should?

     

    Please advise,

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Use the following custom CSS codes instead:

    ::-webkit-input-placeholder {

    color: #000000;

    }

    :-moz-placeholder {

    color: #000000;

    }

    ::-moz-placeholder {

    color: #000000;

    }

    :-ms-input-placeholder {

    color: #000000;

    }

     

    You can inject these codes to the form by following this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks

    I used #000000, please change that to your desired color: #FAEBD7.

    Thanks
