    Active text boxes and changing colors

    Asked by bstaud on August 02, 2015 at 10:40 PM

    When the user clicks on the boxes I want the outside color to remain the light gray and the inside boxes to turn from blue to white. How do I do this? My user name is bstaud64@yahoo.com and the form is called portfolio contact... Thanks!

    Hello bstaud,

    You should disabled the highlighting effect of your form fields and then inject the following custom css code in your form:

    .form-textbox:hover, .form-textarea:hover{

    background-color: #FFFFFF;}

    The following guide should help you how to inject custom css code in form:  https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes
