    How to change font color of Date Picker Widget?

    Asked by lulrich on July 21, 2015 at 10:19 AM

    How do I change the text color of the date after it gets picked?  I had figured out how to change css, etc. on other controls, but on this widget it stays grey and I need it white if possible.  Love your stuff so far.

    Hello lulrich,

    Unfortunately "Date Picker" widget does not have options to inject custom css code to change the appearance of the widget.

    Let me send a feature request to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update form them.

    For now, I would suggest you to please use "Date Time" field instead of "Date Picker" widget. Please check the screenshot below:

    Thank you!

    Just to add, most of the widgets won't be affected with the custom CSS code that we inject on the form, unless the widget has it's own option in the settings for its own custom CSS code.

    An example is the Configurable List widget, if you open its settings, you'll see an option to add the CSS directly there. 

    The custom CSS code that we inject directly in the Preferences or in the Form Designer Tool, only affects directly the form fields found under "Form Tool", "Quick Tools", "Survey Tools" and some in the "Payment Tools".

     

    I hope that helps. If you needed any assistance again, please feel free to open a new thread here in the forum anytime.

    Thank you.
