    Thanks for asking. It is possible to change the background color for an active form field by injecting this custom css:

    .form-line-active {
    background-color: #FFFFFF;

    To inject this css:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Preferences Form button
    3.  Choose Form Styles tab
    4.  Copy and paste the css code in the Inject Custom CSS textarea

    #FFFFFF is equal to the color white, so this code will basically 'remove' the background color. To change it to something else, replace it with an HTML Color Code or a Color Name.

    Hope you find this useful. Thank you for using JotForm!

    thank you for your response but i think we are talking about two different things...


    I was asking about the yellow highlight effect that appears around the edge of the field....is it possible to change that?
