Strange issue with checkbox - HTML5

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by Orawolf, Nov 30, 2015.

    Hello,
    This is on HTML5. Please check and run following HTML code. You will see that the check box leaves yellow padding that precedes the checkbox itself and also it leaves trailing yellow padding. Not sure which CSS property is causing this. I think the div ID "steps" and its CSS is causing the issue. But I must have those settings. How can I just show a normal looking checkbox? Please see the attached image of the issue.

    You have a set width on input. Add a :not([type=checkbox]) to the rule?

    Yeah, generally speaking widths and form elements are a BAD idea, particularly checkboxes or radio buttons.

    P.S. Get a <label> in there!

    Your problem was this focus:

    
    #steps form input:focus{
        -moz-box-shadow:0px 0px 3px #aaa;
        -webkit-box-shadow:0px 0px 3px #aaa;
        box-shadow:0px 0px 3px #aaa;
        background-color:#FFFEEF;
    }
    
    Code (markup):
    Removing the shadow did the trick:

    I also made the text show next to the checkbox. Not sure what you mean by the yellow trail. I don't see any.

    The css:
