    Form border using CSS menu?

    Asked by NikolayApostolov on November 18, 2014 at 09:28 AM

    Hi! I tried to apply a border to my form in the CSS menu. I highlight the area and I choose the border color and the width and then save the changes. But then when I preview the form there is no border. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hi,

    Are you referring to the input boxes border or the entire form border? If the input boxes border, I saw your form codes into the CSS area and everything is properly applied. If you want to override existing codes, you can append !important so for example:

    If you want to change the border of the entire form input boxes, you can use the Designer tab and apply the borders using the textbox styles:

    Lastly, we can help you fix the CSS codes. Just please let us know the affected fields.

    Thank you!

    By the way, you have an existing custom CSS codes per input boxes. You have to remove these codes if you want to style it using the Design tab:

    Thank you!

    Hi, thank you for your reply. I watned to apply border to the entire form - all around it so when it's previewed il will look much better and the border will separate it from the background color. So do I use the CSS code for that? I don't think it can be done by using the designer tab.

    Thanks again.

    Actually, you can use the CSS area in the Form Designer. But I think you just did it. Again, you just need to add !important to the custom CSS codes so to override the existing one that currently in the form:

    Thank you!
