Trying to target specific input field?

  1. Hi guys, I've tried using the CSS samples in the help section, but I think I keep putting it in wrong.

    I have a forum where I'm trying to target one specific input field out of the rest of the customized fields on the form.

    The code for the form itself looks like this:

    body.custom .gform_wrapper .gform_body .gform_fields .gfield input[type=text],
    body.custom .gform_wrapper .gform_body .gform_fields .gfield input[type=email],
    body.custom .gform_wrapper .gform_body .gform_fields .gfield input[type=tel] {
    -webkit-border-radius: 8px;
    -moz-border-radius: 8px;
    border-radius: 8px;
    background-color: white;
    color: #333;
    border: 1px solid #CCC;
    font-size: 17px!important;
    box-shadow: inset 0px 0px 5px #e5e5e5;
    -moz-box-shadow: inset 0px 0px 5px #e5e5e5;
    -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0px 0px 5px #e5e5e5;
    word-spacing: 0.4pt;
    letter-spacing: 0.2pt;
    color: #000000;
    height: 40px;
    width: 100px;
    font-size: 17px!important;
    line-height: 25px;
    padding: 0 10px;

    The CSS for the input field I'm trying to target (and in this case make the background red is below):

    <div class="ginput_container">
    <input name="input_16" id="input_1_16" type="text" value="" class="medium" tabindex="10"/>

    Could someone share an example css of targeting this specific id in css within the string:
    body.custom .gform_wrapper .gform_body .gform_fields .gfield input[type=text]

    There are a few ways of targeting that specific text input, you can follow the CSS Targeting Samples from the documentation which would give you

    body .gform_wrapper .gform_body .gform_fields #field_1_16.gfield input[type=text] {

    or you can just target the input id directly

    #input_1_16 {

  3. You rock Richard, thank you so much! I saw the help documentation but it felt like I was reading latin for some reason (I'm not a great computer coder guy)
