Styling checkbox


#1

Hey guys,

I am enjoying using webflow for creating my website, this makes life easy and also improves the process.

I am facing issue with styling the checkbox that we add in forms. The default checkbox doesn't go well with our graphical theme. So I need to change the color, border, background etc for the check box. But when I do it in webflow I don't see any effect on the checkbox in the site.

Please help me. Thanks a lot for your time and effort.


Checkbox styling tips

HI @Bala, At the moment, you can style the Checkbox Field, the Checkbox Title but for the actual checkbox (the small square checkbox) certain styles do not affect that, such as background color and text color and border (as an example). So you should plan to use the default checkbox style (although, you can affect the size of that checkbox, using the font size property).

thanks a lot for your prompt response. Think that must be in your feature list.. I felt it is important to style it to match to the theme in other parts of the website.

Thanks,
Bala

I styled mine with custom images - check out my public link and go to the bottom project planner section - the 6 options at the bottom are styled check boxes

Overton thanks for sharing how you created that! It's going to help me a lot. I dig your design style.

No worries Danny.

Glad I could help.

Thanks! Very much appreciated blush

So this may be an involved answer, but I was attempting to reverse engineer how you did the stylized checkboxes in your design and couldn't quite figure it out. I'm attempting to recreate this design here and wanted to use my own custom PNG's for the checkbox on / off states. What would be a good resource to teach myself to do that?
