    Form Layout: How can I remove the highlight effect and set the text color to other than white?

    Asked by Catherine Azizi on September 05, 2016 at 09:04 PM

    - When a form field is selected by the cursor, it turns white and makes the text being typed invisible, which is not a good user interface.

    The current text color of your text boxes is white, this is why you cannot see what you're typing, to set them to black and remove the highlight effect when the field is active, pelase inject this CSS code to your form: 

    .form-textbox, .form-textarea{

       color: #000000;




        background-color: transparent !important;
