I'm having problems finding where to define the background color for the text fields on the forms on shopcustomer.asp.

I have the content background as a yellow color, the form itself is a paler yellow. However, some fields are white, some are the pale yellow, and for the life of me I can't figure out where to define them.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Hi Lori,

this info is usually defined in the css files.

.txtfield{
background-color: #FFFFFF;

.txtfielddropdown{
background-color: #FFFFFF;

I'm still on v6.5 but I would imagine that it's similar in v7.0

Regards,

Both textfield and textfielddropdown are set at #ffffff in shop700, so that isn't the problem.

If you start the checkout process, you will see the issue at the screen where you enter customer information.

This was a problem for me in 6.5 as well, but since I'm in the middle of tweaking, I'm hoping to tackle it now.

Thought this might be helpful info as I have seen many comments like this.

Get a free download called "Color Cop" at http://colorcop.net/ . This program will let you find out what the color is that you are looking for on a page so that you can search through the CSS file.

The other hint is to use Firefox with Firebug. Point at the color, right click, choose "Inspect Element" and the CSS file will be shown with the appropriate line. THIS TOOL SAVES HOURS OF SEARCHING!!!!! Must have for anyone doing even modest amounts of web work.

Lori I've had a look at the site and all text fields on the customer form are white. Which browser are you using?

With IE8 this is likely to be Google Toolbar Autofill. This will highlight the possible auto fill fields with pale yellow.
Here's some info:

Try disabling it and see if it changes your form fields.
