    How to disable highlight on my form when selecting fields?

    Asked by CUF on October 20, 2016 at 05:45 AM

    Hi There,

    I'm having issues regarding the highlighting on the Lent Course Submissions form. When you input text into the boxes, the area surrounding the boxes turns white. There is already a slight yellow highlight when you click into the boxes and this is all I want. Is there a way to stop this white surrounding box appearing when you click in the different sections of the form?

    Hello,

    You can disable the highlight of your form by going to the Preferences

    Next, go to Advanced > Show More > Highlight Effect and change it to Disabled

    Once done, click the save changes button and you will notice that the yellow highlight surrounding the field when focused will no longer appear.

    If you have more questions or if you have other concerns, please let us know.

    Thanks.

    Hello,
    Thank you for getting back to me, but this hasn’t solved my issue. The yellow highlight within the text field is wanted, the issue I’m having is the surrounding square white highlight outside of the text field (as pictured in the attachment). This highlights the entire area (i.e. address) with a white box. It is this that I would like to disable.
    Kind regards.

    I'm not sure I understood, do you want to disable this square:

    When selecting the text-field?

    If that's the case just copy the below CSS in your Custom CSS field:

    textarea:focus, input:focus {

        outline: none;

    }

    That will disable the highlight square.

    If you need further assistance please let us know.

    Thank you!
