    Changing required validation styling on form

    Asked by deanandburton on June 03, 2016 at 04:13 PM

    I was wondering if I can change this graphic? (When you get the error message for a required field). It throws in a graphic underneath the box - which causes everything in the form to shift down. Is there a way to remove this graphic OR prevent the form from shifting? I'm more so interested in preventing the whole thing from shifting. I'd like the form to stay as still as possible when using it. Maybe the graphic could go to the right of the box? Or just remove the graphic all together and just the box border turns red? Thank you in advance!

    Yes, this is possible to change the error styling via Form Designer.

    It might be also possible to adjust the error styles by applying custom CSS.
