Custom CSS

Style your forms with custom CSS code.
Tally empowers form creators to design their forms without writing a single line of code. However, a tiny sprinkle of code can add that extra finishing touch to your form.
Injecting custom CSS allows you to style your form in ways that are not available in the default design options.

Injecting custom CSS is a Tally Pro feature.
 


How to inject custom CSS

There are 2 ways to customize your forms using custom CSS:
1️⃣ Open the design options in the form builder and inject custom CSS into the CSS block.
2️⃣ Forms with a custom domain can use the code injection box, on form and domain level.

CSS classes

These CSS classes can be overridden with custom CSS.
⚠️
Don’t use class names which aren’t defined in the table below. For example, class names which look like styled__ContentH3-sc-aw1rsf-4, cwaPRn, etc - those are auto-generated and can change at any time, which will break your CSS rules.
