    Hello,

    I took the liberty to clone the form to reproduce the issue you are having.

    May I suggest you take the cloned form and modify it in the Designer, there you can change the background and text color of Input Text and Dropdown as well.

    I will try to create a step by step way for you to achieve this.

     

    Thanks for using JotForm!

    Change background and text color for Input Text and Dropdown from Designer.

    1- Click inside any Textbox or Dropdown inside the form

    2- On the left, use the 'Background Color' and 'Font Color' to change the color of background and font respectively.

    Thank you, it worked, with your code I were able to identify what part of the code was bugging. I had to take out a part of the old code. Thanks a lot !
