Make choices as clickable buttons for your forms

In this article, you will learn how to make choices as clickable buttons using our CSS form generator. We developed a CSS code that will change the design of your Single and Multiple choice fields. Use the following CSS code to give your form a modern layout:

body #form div[data-role="choice"] > label > input[type="radio"], body #form div[data-role="choice"]
   padding: 0.5em;
   margin: 0;

body #form div[data-role="choice"]  > label > input[type="radio"]{
   position: absolute !important;
   opacity: 0 !important;
   left: -100% !important;
body #form div[data-role="choice"]:first-child {
body #form div[data-role="choice"],body #form div[data-role=control]:not([data-force-mobile-rendering]) [data-role=input-row] {
    overflow: unset !important;
body #form div[data-role="choice"]  > label > label {
   display: none !important;
body #form div[data-role="choice"]  > label  {
   overflow: unset !important;
   padding: 0 !important;
body #form div[data-role="choice"]  > label  > span {
   width: 150px;
   height: 40px;
display: flex !important;
   justify-content: center;
   align-items: center;
   border: 1px solid #cccccc;
body #form div[data-role="choice"]  > label > input:checked + label +  span  {
   background-color: #2F86CA;

body #form div[data-role="choice"] > label > input:checked + label + span:after {
   display: block;
   width: calc(100% + 4px);
   height: calc(100% + 4px);
   left: -7px;
   top: -7px;
   background-color: transparent;
   position: absolute;

Copy-paste the code in Design → Add custom CSS.

For the choices to be displayed one after another make sure to go to each choice field and select the Inline choices option.

We made bold the parts where you can add your own preferences.

  • width: 150px – increase the number of pixels to make the buttons wider.
  • height: 40px – change the row height to any size.
  • background-color: #2F86CA – add the hex code of your desired color (currently it is a shade of blue when someone clicks on a choice).
  • color: #ffffff – this will change the font’s color when the choice is selected (currently white).

When modifying the code make sure not to delete any semicolons or curly brackets. If something is not working properly you can always copy the code again.

This is a general code that works for all forms and applies to all choice fields. We made this code to have a better understanding of our platform’s flexibility.

Important Note

Keep in mind that it is not our responsibility to fix the code once you have changed it.

That being said, here is how the CSS will change the design of your form:
