    How to change input background highlight?

    Asked by misgood on June 03, 2015 at 03:12 PM


    How might  I alter the input background, when the cursor is placed? I've tried to change the input background, to no avail.


    Also, how might I remove the top & bottom padding built directly into the form?

    Thank you!

    If you are referring to the highlight on the input text box, you can change it by following the steps below.

    1. First, open your Form Designer Tool. Click the text box, navigate to Color Scheme, enable "Stimulate Highlight". To change the color, just click the gear icon at the right side.

    2. It will open the "Highlight Styles" option, here you can change the color.


    I hope that helps. Do let us know if you need more information on it.


    For the other question that you have regarding the padding, I've opened a separate thread to better assist you, please refer to this link instead: http://www.jotform.com/answers/581525. We will address it shortly.

    Thank you.
