    I am trying to change the form field error background color, but can not seem to make it work.

    Asked by MBENSAL on October 05, 2015 at 04:52 PM

    I would like it to be the same color as the background for legibility of the white text. Even better would be if the error input fields were outlined in red.

    I usually like to give the CSS code and work on them, but I believe that you will like to see our short video that will show you how to make the changes to the error notifications from withing the Form Designer with few simple steps.

    You can take a look at all of our videos here: Video Course: Form Designer Basics although the section 9 is the one you are after - showing you the video guide on the error styles.

    Of course, do let us know if you need any assistance after watching the video and we would be happy to assist with the CSS if needed - or answer any questions that you might have :)
