Styling "gf_placeholder" in Version 2.6.3

Please help. What am I doing wrong? I tried everything in my css and it will not style. I used to do this kind of thing all the time. Here is what I want.

I. Change the display of the placeholder.
2. Remove the placeholder when it is clicked.

<option value="" selected="selected" class="gf_placeholder">Yes / No?</option>
<option value="Yes">Yes</option>
<option value="No">No</option>

Hi Alec. Can you share a link to the page on your site where we can see the form, and then let us know what you want to change about the display of the placeholder? Thank you.

Thanks Chris.

I want to be able to style the ‘placeholder’. (i.e. 'Yes/No?" and 'Please choose")

I assume it’s generated from the ‘gf_placeholder’ via a script, but how can I grab it to style.


I figured it out.

There is no ‘placeholder’ as such and used simply the ‘select’ selector. (i.e. select {color:#888;} and then .gf_placeholder {display:none !important;} to get my desired effect.

If there is an easier way, please let me know.


It sounds like you have it - I don’t know of an easier solution. If you need anything else, please let us know.
