    Dynamic Textbox widget: Custom CSS is not working.

    Asked by gamliela on December 03, 2015 at 06:52 AM
    1) "Custom CSS" is not working. I tried inject CSS selectors, refer to external files, but I couldn't affect the outcome by any mean.

    I cloned your form and checked the setup of your Dynamic Textbox field but I was not able to see any custom CSS code in the widget.


    Can you give us the CSS you are trying to add or the style you want to achieve on your widget so we can further check the issue? Please note that for the CSS code to work in your widget, you need to add it in the Custom CSS tab in the widget wizard as shown in the screenshot above.


    We will wait for your response.

    I'm aware to Custom CSS box.

    The problem is that nothing that I put there is working.

    For example, I now changed the first widget in my form. I added "direction" property, to make the widget appear in right-to-left mode. This is not working.

    I would like to apologize for the inconvenience. I tried applying CSS codes to the widget(Dynamic Textbox) under the Custom CSS tab and it's not working on my end also. 

    I will be escalating this to our developers so it can be checked. You will be notified via this thread if there are any updates.

    Thank you.

    I cloned your form and tried changing the color of the button using css. I was able to change it without any problem.
