    How can I change colors on the numeric slider widget?

    Asked by BeholdMe on November 23, 2016 at 04:28 PM

    Can anyone assist me with changing colors of the number slider widget? I am assuming it is possible through the custom css option for the widget, but sadly I don't know css at all.

    I want a red border with white background for the slider and red icon (the one that moves according to the value.

    If I understand you correctly, you want to change the color of the slider widget. Here's what you want to change: 

    Here's how to add custom CSS code to a widget:

    1. Open your form and select the widget field. Click the Wand icon button. 

    2. Go to Custom CSS tab, paste the custom CSS code and click the Update Widget button. Here's the code:

    .bfh-slider>.bfh-slider-handle>.bfh-slider-value { 

    background-color: red !important;

    .bfh-slider { 

    background-color: white;

    border: 1px solid red !important;

    .bfh-slider>.bfh-slider-handle { 

    border: 1px solid red !important;


    Hope that helps. If you need further assistance, please contact us again. Thank you.

    You are using a different widget on the other form (70470526426151) that's why my colleague's code won't work on that form.

    Use this CSS codes instead.

    a.ui-slider-handle.ui-state-default.ui-corner-all {

        background: #C02228;

        border: 1px solid #C02228;


    .wrapper {

        background-color: #fff;

        border: 1px solid #c02228;


    .ui-widget-content {

        border: none;

        background: none;



    Hope this helps!
