    Hi Matt,


    Thank your for contacting us!


    You will need to use custom CSS to change the background color of the options in your dropdown. Please use the CSS and steps below:



    option {

       background-color: #FFF; // white background color




    1. Open you form in Design mode (click Designer at the top toolbar).

    2. Click CSS tab.

    3. Insert the CSS snippet above as shown in the image.

    4. Save your form.


    That should change the background color of the options in your dropdowns.


    Otherwise, if you want the background of a different control, you can still follow the steps above but you need to modify the CSS snippet a bit. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
