Colored Text Fields in Forms
I have visited several web sites that contain forms, and their form fields that allow text have a colored shadow inside of them and/or colored border around them. I have checked the source code to see how this is done, but the codes are hidden in linked style sheets that I cannot view.
Does ANYONE know where I can find the codes/scripts for these enhancements?
Wow! Thanks, Dave!
Actually, I posted this same question in another area and received another good suggestion, as well. But this is a lot easier, to be honest.
I was previously able to access the stylesheet the way you suggested, and I found that the text field's shadow was actually a background image, which I was not aware you could do with an input field. But this inline code that you provided will work fine... even better. Muchos gracias, David!
Yet another great resource! Thanks again, Dave!
By the way, I was out of the world of web design for several months and recently started getting back into the habit of checking for updates every chance I get. Considering the way web design changes on a daily basis, imagine my surprise when I jumped back into it and found that almost everything I had learned over the previous year had been replaced with newer and better methods.
You will most likely see many questions posted by yours truly. Things are changing faster than I can keep up, and I sincerely appreciate any help I can get.
Watch it when looking at MS resources for how to do things. They are mixing a lot of proprietary crap with correct code and this will make your page break in other browsers.
The link I gave you in the other thread is the one that shows how it should really be done.
Thanks, Stefan. I don't rely on MS to learn anything about web development. I usually go to more serious web sites like Webmonkey and WebDeveloper.com, or I buy books from Amazon or Borders. I subscribe to a few online newsletters, as well as printed materials for the latest and greatest hints and how-to's. I am also a member of the IWA, so there are on-line classes available to me at pretty good prices. I will keep this in mind though, and your link is in my favorites! Thanks for the insight!
