    how can I get rid of highlight color?

    Asked by nensusa on January 25, 2012 at 03:20 AM

    I chose the industrial look with teh black bg color and I am getting an eggshell highlight when trying to fill out the forms -- very strange -- how can I get rid of those

     

    Also: I made all boxes the same width, but the name and emai box are shorter than the subject and message box

    Hi,

    To disable highlight effect, please follow this steps:

    1. Edit your form

    2. Click Setup & Embed

    3. Click Preferences

    4. Go to Field Styles tab

    5. Set Highlight Effect to "Disabled"

    With regards to your other question, I just checked your form and all boxes are on the same width. They're all fine here, did you manage to fix it? Please let us know.

    I hope this helps. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Thank you!
    Can I also get rid of the highlight color for the "required filed" if
    the user skips it
    and have a simple red text message instead of the entire field in pink?

    With the Inject Custom CSS feature you can remove the background highlight for required fields. Please use the following css code:

    .form-line-error {
       background:none repeat scroll 0 0;
    }


    Cheers!
