CSS

Description

You can add any CSS code to a page where a Contact Enhanced form is published. Please do not confuse this Custom Field with the Attributes Field of every Custom Field where you can add the style="" attribute.

Requirement

  1. Have watched the Form Fields -> Basic Features screencast;
  2. Some CSS knowledge;
  3. FireBug might help in this task; (optional);

Usage

Select Components → Contact Enhanced → Form Fields from the drop-down menu on the back-end of your Joomla! installation, then Select CSS from the Field Type select list;

Choose a category for your Form Field, then Save the changes.

Joomla 1.6+ comes with a WYSIWYG code editor called CodeMirror. If CodeMirror is enabled Contact Enhanced will load it after the page is saved.

The CSS Form Field has no specific parameters;

 

Code Example

 

Output Example

With Contact Enhanced you can add many other custom fields types, but for the purposes of this example there are only 3 (Name, Email, Select List );
