    Custom CSS for Form Tabs Widget

    Asked by wrstaff on November 24, 2015 at 08:16 PM

    What custom CSS would I use to keep the default style of the tabs, but change the background color of the selected tab?  Choosing red from the various custom styles changes the tabs into rectangles and generates odd spacing between them.  Screenshot is attached.

    Please check this similar discussion thread


    In that thread, the CSS provided by our colleague Mike_T changes only the background color of Active tab. Was it similar to what you wanted to do on your form? 

    Hope this help. Let us know if you encounter difficulty applying the same CSS solution to your form tab widgets.
