    Add a border to Text field

    Asked by studentuniontest on October 16, 2014 at 11:01 AM


    I would like to put a border around the free text in my form - such as the bit that starts Event Plan and has a description - ideally I would like a white thick border so the text is more prominent

    Does anyone have html code for this

    You need to use a tool to inspect the code and find out each of the Text field ID's:

    Then you can add the following css code:


        border-style: solid;
        border-width: 5px;
            border-color: white;


     You can use "double" instead of solid if you wish double border. You may change the width to your needs.

    Let us know if we can assist you further.
