Apply CSS styles

In this article, you’ll find out how to apply different CSS styles to your forms.

Add border to specific elements

First of all, to select a specific element, you need to add a CSS class to it, like this:

Customization class

Now, you can target only elements with this class. The following code will add a black order to them:

/* chnage tabs background color */
.fd-form .my-element {
    border: 1px solid #000000;
}

Change background of specific fields

First of all, to select a specific element, you need to add a CSS class to it, like this:

Customization class

Now, you can target only elements with this class. The following code will changet the background inside of the field’s control:

.my-element input{
    background: darkblue;
    color: yellow;
}

Warning

This will only work for some types of fields.

Change colors of Tabs

The following code will change the color of tabs:

/* chnage tabs background color */
.fd-form .nav-tabs .nav-link {
    background-color: red;
}
/* change active tab background color */
.fd-form .nav-tabs .active.nav-link {
    background-color: yellow;
}

You can target only specific Tabs container by adding it a CSS class and using it in your code:

/* change tabs background color */
.fd-form .my-element .nav-tabs .nav-link {
    background-color: red;
}
/* change active tab background color */
.fd-form .my-element .nav-tabs .active.nav-link {
    background-color: yellow;
}

Change colors of Accordion

The following code will change the color of accordion’s links:

/* style all tabs */
a.nav-link {
    font-weight: bold;
    color: red;
    background: black;
}

/* style selected tab */
a.nav-link.active {
    font-weight: bold;
    color: blue;
    background: white;
}

You can target only specific Tabs container by adding it a CSS class and using it in your code:

/* style all tabs */
.my-element a.nav-link {
    font-weight: bold;
    color: red;
    background: black;
}

/* style selected tab */
.my-element  a.nav-link.active {
    font-weight: bold;
    color: blue;
    background: white;
}

Apply styles for a specific screen size

You can apply styles based on the screen size. For example, the following code will only work if the screen width is larger than 1600px:

@media  screen and (min-width: 1600px) {
    .fd-form .container-fluid {
        width: 800px !important;
    }
}

Or you can also check if it’s smaller:

@media  screen and (max-width: 800px) {
    .fd-form .container-fluid {
        width: 400px !important;
    }
}

Apply styles on PDF export

The following code will only work when the form is exported to PDF. You can use it to hide elements on the form, and to adjust styles as necessary:

.k-pdf-export .my-element {
    display: none !important;
}
