    Dual List Widget: How can I change the colors of option?

    Asked by coseminary on November 18, 2016 at 09:17 PM

    I want to have some items (courses) in one color and other items in other colors. I want students to pick their own courses but have a minimum number, let's say in New Testament, Old Testament, etc. If I color code them then it will make it easy for them to select. 

    I tried copying in colored items, but just turned them into black. Would this be a CSS thing?

    Thank you for your assistance.  Gary

    Hi Gary,

    You can change color of options in Dual List Widget. You must inject these CSS codes into your Widget Custom CSS.

    option[value="1. GBTH 520 The Holy Spirit"]{

         color:red;

     }

    option[value="1. GBTH 553 Spiritual Warfare III"]{

         color:blue;

     }

    Follow these steps:

    1. Click wizard button on your widget.

    2. Inject your CSS code to "Custom CSS" part.


    Everything works properly , as you can see below:

    You can add values that you want and change their colors.
