    How can I change the background color of the input for 'Your Message' in a form

    Asked by bubbbab on April 03, 2012 at 08:59 AM

    In CSS, I've done text area and text box which are working. I can't seem to find the class for the Your Message field.  I'm a real newbie to CSS code :(

    This is the CSS I am using currently:

    #first_15 {width: 150px !important; }

    #last_15 {width: 150px !important; }

    #input_16 {width: 317px !important; }

    .form-textbox { background: #FADB87; }

    .form-text-area {background: #FADB87; }

    Thanks,

    Steve.

    Hi Steve,

    You're almost there :), you just need to use .form-textarea and NOT .form-text-area. See the differences? There should be no hyphen symbol (-) between text and area. 

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thanks for using JotForm!
