    You should be able to do this in the Form Designer Tool, you can follow the screenshots below:

    1. Open your Form Designer Tool.

    2. Under the "Color Scheme" click the gear icon of the "Simulate Highlight"

    3. Here you can set the color of the highlight of the active input.

    4. Here's a cloned form with that changed I made: https://form.jotform.com/52986048336970? 


    Do let us know if that helps.

    I did as you said but after saving the form the changes doesn't appear in the form.

    when I checked the form simulate highlight was not selected, I don't know how but  it automatically deselects itself ( "simulate highlight" )

    Alternatively, you can try to inject custom CSS code to your form. Below, you will see the CSS code that makes the changes you want:



    background-color: #00608E !important;



    I hope this one will help you.
