    Can you remove the background color when you click on a section?

    Asked by grafixdiva on July 28, 2010 at 04:40 PM

    For example, on my form, I have the form background color as transparent, but when you click on the question it turns the background like an off-white color around the question it self.  Anybody know a way that I can remove  this?

    Try copying your form to your web site and using an HTML editor to remove that background color.

    It's not in the HTML. Is this a default Server Side color coding? I would also like to get rid of it. For me, when someone clicks on an entry, it covers over my graphics with a yellow rectangle block.

    You can resolve this using Inject Custom CSS feature.

    To change the color of the hightlight effect, you can use the "Inject Custom CSS" feature on the Preferences screen. Enter this code there:

    .form-line-active{
       background-color: #F5F5F5;
    }

    Or just go into the preferences and set the 'highlight' to disabled... this seems to turn off the coloured blocks that show up when you fill in a field.
