    Is it possible to change the background color of one column in a 3 column form?

    Asked by AspireMarketing on June 04, 2015 at 09:16 AM

    I need to distinguish where one column ends and another begins. Can I change a background color or add a border? The fields all seem to run together.

    Yes that's possible using .form-col-1 class.

    Example, this will change the background color of the first column to yellow.

    .form-col-1 {

    background: #FF0;



    Shrunken field that is moved to a new line will start a new column, this also means it will have .form-col-1 class.

    Let us know if you need further help. Thank you!
