Web Forms for Marketers

Change the color and style of a web form


Change a web form's default color scheme or theme as well as a form field's style.

You can change the default color scheme and theme of web forms and MVC forms, for example, if you want your web forms to follow the style of your website. A color scheme sets the colors for each form element, such as the foreground or background color, and themes are a set of visual effects.

CSS classes describe colors and effects for an individual form field. You can change the style directly in the Form Designer using a predefined form field, or create your own custom CSS theme and style.


Changes made to the theme and color of one form apply to all forms.
