Styling a text area/text feild

I’m styling a some form text fields. I can change the font in the text area, but how can you change the input font color?

style="width:300px;height:20px;border:1px solid #BDC0C5; padding: 3px; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;"

Thanks mike - but I was wanting to know the exact code bit to use a different color on the input text. Do you know what that is?

(BTW) My original message has disappeared on the web forum !! Or at least for me it has.

(Here’s the gist again)

I want to style the colour of the input text on a text field whats the code for that bit?:

width:400px;height:20px;border:1px solid #BDC0C5; padding: 3px; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px;

Hummm… ff the top of my head!

color=#cccccc;

so try:

width:400px;height:20px;border:1px solid #BDC0C5; padding: 3px; font-
family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; color=#cccccc; font-size: 13px;

That what I thought before making this thread,

Using color=#cccccc; has no effect on the input text color.

width:400px;height:20px;border:1px solid #BDC0C5; padding: 3px; font- family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; color=#cccccc; font-size: 13px;

There must be something else that is needed :frowning:

Yes that works.

Can drop down menus be styled?

Rather than doing this with markup or extended stuff (which I presume
is how you’re doing it), you could just make a type style in the
Styles list with “textarea” in the Tag field…

Make a new style, type “textarea”, without the quotes, into the Tag
field in the Edit Style dialog, delete what’s in the Name field, and
add your desired style settings.

This style will automatically be included in your set of styles that
Freeway manages, and any ‘textarea’ HTML element will be given those
type settings.

You can do the same with a picker list, but not a menu. This is
because menus are drawn as standard operating system objects, and Mac
OS X menus always look like Mac OS X menus - this is entirely out of
your hands… but if you make the Menu/List object taller than one
item it is published as a clickable picker list instead. Different
function, different behaviour… same tag. Which is “select”; use
that in the Tag field of a style, delete whatever’s in the Name
field, give it the style settings you want, and you’re done!

This is simpler, uses CSS, and works more closely with the
‘preferred’ Freeway workflow rather than the alternative one of
mixing in markup code snippets.

Thanks for the info, but I was using “textarea” tag in the styles sheet.

Can a menu list in a from be styled?

It can. Use a Tag style named select and style as you like. Keep in mind that not all browsers support styling of all form elements so the results may not be consistent across all browsers.

Yep just been playing around with it. Thought it was not working or I was getting it wrong, it was Freeway not re-publishing it.
