    How does the highlight color effect works in my form?

    Asked by NikolayApostolov on November 14, 2014 at 01:07 PM

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Thank you very much for the beautiful product that you have created. I had an issue using the ¨simulate highlight¨ option in the Color scheme menu. When selected this option clearly highlights and creates beautiful colored borders between the different sections of the form. This is very helpful since one can clearly distinguish when one section of the form ends and starts another. But then when previewing the form this setting goes back to default and you are not able to see the effect.

    I would be grateful for your advice whether I'm doing something wrong or it's a bug that need to be fixed. I attach a screenshot.

    Thank you very much in advance for your reply.

    Your form already has the highlight effect that you're seeing in the form editor.

    This effect will be triggered in your form to highlight the field that is currently selected in your form. Please check the pictures below.

    The full name field gets highlighted when you click it to enter a name.

    Same goes for the Regional Office field

    You can also test the highlight effect when a validation error is triggered in your form (click on the Simulate error data checkbox in the form designer)

    Please check your form here: http://www.jotformeu.com/form/43165340073346 and you should be able to see the highlight effects in your browser.

    Let us know if you have further questions.
    Thank you.
