Does anyone know how to change the background color of a textbox? I can't

find it anywhere. If nothing maybe someone can give me the HTML code that I

can add to it to make that change.

Thanks

Jake

    • Text boxes don't have attributes like background color that you can set in

      HTML. Instead it is done through Cascading Stylesheets (CSS). You can set

      the style by selecting the properties for the text box and clicking the

      style button. Select the Border item under the Format dropdown list to get

      to the border and background color choosers.

      Hope this helps,
