    Hi, You can choose "Default Theme" with a white background or choose Setup & Embed tab and click Preferences - now choose "Transparent" in background option. Otherwise you can customize it by injecting css code.

    If you need a custom css code tell us know and we try to help you.


    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Another possible way is to go to the Setup & Embed tab of your form and click Preferences. Then type the word transparent in the background option and click Close Settings:

    And you're done!

    Hi, thank you for your speedy reply.
    The website I am using the form on has a patterned background, so I don't want the form to have a background colour.
    This is the page with the form - http://kpintest.shop033.com/g/1122075/contact-us.html
    I'm unsure of css, so your help would be great.
    Many thanks,

    To get your form's iframe code, please follow this steps:

     

    1. Go to Setup & Embed

    2. Click Embed Form

    3. Select iFrame

    4. Copy the provided code.


    Hope this helps. Thank you for using JotForm!

    There is no CSS coding necessary for this.  The reason why the transparent thing didn't work for you was because you quoted the word transparent as this way: 'transparent'

    I have removed the quotes for you.  You can now check again your webpage with the transparent background.

    Please let us know if you have other questions or concerns.

    Thanks.

    Hi, Having a quick look at your software it has some really great features. I think I already know the answer to this, but wondered if you can use the forms a price / cost calculator? i.e. select product, select size, select print, select quantity. Each section has its own price and then it calculates it at the end??
    Regards,
