  1. In the Form designer, on the form canvas, click the form element you want to style.

  2. In the Form elements pane, in the Styling section, in the CSS class field, enter the class for the field or select it from the list of available classes.

    For example, to color the Submit button, use the .btn-success class:

    We recommend that you preview the form before publishing it on the website. The way the form displays in the Forms application might not reflect the actual styling of the form on the webpage.
