    How to set the form's background color?

    Asked by mackayjames on March 02, 2015 at 11:22 AM
    Also, on my main form, I would like to have the Gray background be white.  I have tried all the options in the Design tab and they are not working for this setting, also in the Preference settings for the form there is a Background option, this does not work either.  Just CSS Code to make the change would be ideal.

    Hello mackayjames,

    I was able to change the form's back ground color of the cloned form. Please check the screenshot below on how to change the form's background color:


    Please take a look at the following cloned form and see if this works as expected:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50603946808965?  Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL  

    If you still want to use custom css code to change the form's background color, please go ahead and inject the following custom css code in form:

    .form-all {

    background-color: #ffffff !important;
