    That is done using custom injected CSS codes.

    I suggest you review this thread also as it it was exactly similar to your inquiry.



    Using the new Form Designer, you can add icon/image to the input box(in this case the Textbox field) by going to the CSS designer and inject CSS code like this

    sample CSS

    #input_1 {

        background : transparent url('http://www.yourwebsite.com/icons/name_icon.png') no-repeat 20px center;

        background-size : 20px;


    where #input_1 is the field ID#


    I have also submitted this post to our higher team support as a feature request ticket to have the feature added in the Form Designer. The new feature is to have option to easily add icons/images into the input fields.

    We will notify you for any update on the requested feature when available.

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you need further assistance.
