yellow grunge

I built a form with a really nice design but that yellowey grunge color that Form fillers throw into my textfields is really messing up my design...any ideas on how to get rid of that stuff?

Last time I had that problem it turned out to be one of the form fillers for the browser. Don't know if that's the case here.

It probably is a browser filler. I really want to find a way to block that from happening on my site for other users also.

It can be really annoying !! In fact, when I log in to WA, I can't even see what I am typing because it turns my type white and the background yellow. I attached a screenshot of it...my id is actually typed in there. So I have to stop and click/drag over it to see what I have typed.

You just need to specify a background colour for the input fields in you css. I've just spent some time getting rid of the colours in the form fields in the Contact Form Solution Pack contact_styled.php file. They were especially annoying! (Here)

EDIT: Actually, no. The form fields in the WebAssist log-in page are secified by css, so something about your system must be 'over-riding' it. What happens if you preview in other browsers?
EDIT 2: You could put your mind at ease by giving your form-fields background-images (just a tiny coloured (or white) image set to repeat x + y). I'd like to see the browser get past that!

gruant,

that is strange... when I log into the WebAssist site, when I first select an input to focus, it becomes the blue color which is on the rest of the WebAssist site. Then if I enter a valid input, it turns to green. If it is invalid, it turns to red. Sounds like what your experiencing may be browser and/or OS specific. I am running Mac OSX 10.6 with Firefix and have not been able to replicate. My guess is that your running IE which may apply its own default behaviors to forms.

Regards,

Brian

Yeah I already had a bg color in mine but it still gets through....nice idea about the image though, I will try that

It turns green on WA's form ? Huh, I've gotten red before but never green...thats just goofy

As the designer of the site you can control what css is applied to the form fields initially or when certain actions happen with the use of tools like the spry validations.

If you have a browser add in that fills the forms for you and recolors the input fields then this does not have anything to do with your site or the css you are using, it is an effect of the add in you are using. You should check the options you have for the add in to see if this is something you can change or disable.
