How to add a background colour to an Input type in a form

Discussion in 'CSS' started by misohoni, Nov 7, 2004.

  1. #1
    at the moment all boxes have a white background:

    <input type="text" id="dates" name="date" size="10" />

    How do I add a background colour and even change the font type?

    Thanks

    you should be able to use:

    style="background: #fc0; font-family: Georgia;"

    I think that works if I remember correctly

    jatrasmara, did you not notice before you posted that this thread is almost 7 years old?

    Wow. You'd figure they'd lock threads older than a certain amount of time to prevent this.

    They probably will lock this one now but it is sad that it has to come to that, you would think that it would only be common sense that if the thread is older than a week and the OP has clearly already solved their problem, you wouldn't post in it?

    This property will let you add a background color behind most anything. You can add it to text like this:

    <SPAN style="background-color:yellow">My background is yellow!</SPAN>

    And you get a beautiful yellow background..
