As far as I know, you cant colour the check boxes themselves, they always show as white with a black tick, unless its a custom button that changes image when you **** it, but then you have to make an **** function.

Well once you've got the images, you need to make it like this:

Code: Select all

void changeColour ()
{
    ****.form1.redcheckbox.    src='redcheckbox-checked.jpg'
}
I'm not exactly sure though, I'm not that good at javascript.

Just like Tails5 said, you need to use images and Javascript. However, this is greatly discouraged by all web designers, etc and is very difficult to do when submitting forms and finally it doesn't support all users.

Hi, bro. I only know a thing or two about <input type="text"> (text fields - form)

Simply add this to your style sheet or css source:
input[type="text"].rounded_inputs {
font-family: Verdana;
border: 1px solid #B3B3B3;
border-bottom-left-radius: 6px 6px;
border-bottom-right-radius: 6px 6px;
border-top-left-radius: 6px 6px;
border-top-right-radius: 6px 6px;
color: #999;
height: 19px;
padding: 2px;
}
And for displaying the form, enter this html code:
input type="text" name="category2" size="25" class="rounded_inputs" value="Your Name" onBlur="if (this.value == '') {this.value = 'Your Name';}" onFocus="if (this.value == 'Your Name') {this.value = '';}"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><input type="text" name="category3" size="25" id="GRCategory3" class="rounded_inputs" value="Your E-mail" onBlur="if (this.value == '') {this.value = 'Your E-mail';}" onFocus="if (this.value == 'Your E-mail') {this.value = '';}"></td>
Hope this helps.

Your buddy, THE lonely Potato.
