    I changed the text color to white. When a question is selected it gets highlighted. How can I change such colours?

    Asked by isherclub on October 21, 2016 at 09:54 AM

    I changed the default text color to white to match with my web site.


    When a question is selected, it gets highlighted with a light yellow colour but on doing so the question text disappear.


    How can I change those highlight settings to avoid this issue?


    Thanks in advance

    As I understand you try to change background color of a focussed field. Please use this CSS code according to color needs. Change the value starts with "#".

    .form-line-active {
    background-color: #B20000;

    You can choose colors from here.

    Also here is the guide on how to inject css code into your form.

    Here I prepared a demonstration for you if you don't want to read the guide:

    If the code won't works please try to add "!important" which overrides other styles on your page:

    .form-line-active {
    background-color: #B20000 !important;

    I hope this answer helps. If your issue persist after trying these codes, please contact us again.

    All the best.
