    Can you remove the red highlight field from the required option?

    Asked by dynasty_four on October 03, 2011 at 01:02 PM
    When you have the required option selected and you don't fill it out. It makes the entire background red and is ugly. Anyway to not make it do that but just pop up with the words that says this field is required?

    You may use the Inject Custom CSS to remove the background for the required fields:

    .form-line-error {
       background:none repeat scroll 0 0;

    In addition you may also want to visit the following forum thread, it contains several information related to modifying the 'Required Field' properties.
