    I would like to turn off the VOVER effect for FORM Collapse. Or bepointed if there is anything wrong with the CSS code I have cobbled together.


    As the screenshot shows, when hovered over the Text disappears.

    Perhaps you can remove the hove effect.
    I change the form-collapse CSS to this one.

    .form-collapse-table {

    background: grey !important; color: #FFFFFF !important; 


    The form become like this http://www.jotform.me/form/21336446432449

    The color name gray has wider browser support than grey. A curious thing is that although IE recognizes gray, it will not recognize lightgray. You have to use lightgrey! (At least that's the case with older versions of the browser.) To be on the safe side, use hex codes because they have the widest support across platforms. In this instance, that would be #808080 instead of grey or gray.

    Just thought I should mention that little tidbit I learned a few months ago. :)

    Love the serrvice at Jotform!


    Just a quickie....if I wanted those collapse forms to be this colour #3b5998 what would the code be.


    I want them to be the same colour as the form background. IE Seemless with the background of overall form?


    Is this possible?
