How to Give the Submit Button a Hover State?

  1. Hi guys,

    I've been plugging away at this, but no luck. I'm sure someone will have the obvious answer. How do I make the submit button change when hovered over? I need to turn this into a hover state:

    .gform_wrapper .gform_footer input.button,
    .gform_wrapper .gform_footer input[type=submit]

    Thanks!

  2. We can give more specific assistance if you post a link to your form. But to add a hover state to the CSS you posted there, add this:

    [css]
    .gform_wrapper .gform_footer input.button:hover

    and also

    [css]
    .gform_wrapper .gform_footer input.button:active

    and finally

    [css]
    .gform_wrapper .gform_footer input.button:focus

    I've never had good luck getting this to work (especially with IE):

    [css]
    input[type='submit']

    so I generally avoid it. To be super specific, you can add a class to your form and then target that in your theme's stylesheet. Or just get more specific with the CSS rules. If it's not working, please post a link to your form and we'll help you out.
