    Asked by Tiffgringa on June 16, 2015 at 11:38 PM

    How do I change the color of the checks in check boxes?

    Also, how do I restrict the boxes so only one can be checked?

    Hi Tiffgringa, 

    Thanks for contacting us.


    To change the color of the check in the checkboxes, please inject the following custom CSS code:

    .form-checkbox-item:not(#foo) label:after {

      background-color: #000000;

      box-shadow: 0 3px 0 0 #000000, 3px 3px 0 0 #000000, 6px 3px 0 0 #000000, 9px 3px 0 0 #000000, 8px 6px 0 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0), 10px 1px 0 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);



    To inject custom CSS code in your form, just follow the instructions provided in this article.


    Regarding your second question, I have moved it to a separate thread since we only answer one question per thread. You can check the thread here. We will attend to it as soon as possible.


    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
