I try to style checkbox background color, but it won't change whatever I do. I am using firefox 29 latest.

Is there some rule changes in css or may be in the browser?

CSS:

input[type="checkbox"] {
    background: #990000;    
}

.chk {
   background-color: #990000;  

}

Here is a demo http://jsfiddle.net/6KXRg/

Checkboxes are not able to be styled. You would need a third party js plugin there are many available.

If you want to do this yourself it basically involves hiding the checkbox creating an element and styling that as you want then binding its click event to two functions one to change its look and another to activate the click event of the checkbox.

The same problem will arise when trying to style that little down arrow on a drop-down select element.

HTML & CSS. sort of javascript replacement which is beyond the scope of CSS.

Although the question is answered and is older, In exploring some options to overcome the the styling of check boxes issue I encountered this awesome set of CSS3 only styling of check boxes and radio buttons controlling background colors and other appearances. Thought this might be right up the alley of this question.

How to change the checkbox border's color - HTML & CSS, I want to change the checkbox's border color, see the attached. this effect isn't i want: .style{ This code will work in Opera, look odd in IE and do nothing in Firefox. <! Chances are that if you apply a style to a form element and it doesn't get applied then that What I've shown you is all that you can do. I try to style checkbox background color, but it won't change whatever I do. I am using firefox 29 latest. Is there some rule changes in css or may be in the browser? CSS: input[type="checkbox"]

I had the same issue, trying to use large inputs and had a very small checkbox. After some searching, this is good enough for my needs:

input[type='checkbox']{
  width: 30px !important;
  height: 30px !important;
  margin: 5px;
  -webkit-appearance: none;
  -moz-appearance: none;
  -o-appearance: none;
  appearance:none;
  outline: 2px solid lightblue;
  box-shadow: none;
  font-size: 2em;
}

Solved: Change checkbox color in form, I try to style checkbox background color, but it won't change whatever I do. I am using firefox 29 latest. Is there some rule changes in css or may be in the browser​  Hi, The simple fact is that form elements only allow partial styling at the best of times and if the styling isn't showing then its 99% certain that it isn't implemented in that browser.

Technically, it is possible to change the color of anything with CSS. As mentioned, you can't change the background-color or color but you can use CSS filters. For example:

input[type="checkbox"] { /* change "blue" browser chrome to yellow */
  filter: invert(100%) hue-rotate(18deg) brightness(1.7);
}

If you are really looking for design control over checkboxes though, your best bet is to do the "hidden" checkbox and style an adjacent element such as a div.

The "Checkbox Hack" (and things you can do with it), Solved: HI, I tried to use this CSS for changing color of the checkbox - It's blue right now & I need to be white. But with this, it doesn't the color. Instead, it bring Do you want the background of the checkbox to be white on check or uncheck? It is actually not a dot, its a super teeny tiny checkbox, because of the padding on the input. If you change it from 0.8em to 0.1em, you will see what i mean. Moving the padding from the input element to the input[type="checkbox"]:checked::before selector it will work in all browsers the same.

Can be very simplified like that :

input[type="checkbox"]{
    outline:2px solid red;
    outline-offset: -2px;
}

Works without any plugin :)

  • @blueygh2 more like a perfect duplicate, lol.
  • thanks guys...! I already read that, just want to make sure what is the problem!
  • Possible duplicate of Html CheckBox : Change Color
  • These are cool, but it was a royal pain trying to get text to the side of the checkbox. I'm almost giving up on this.
  • Wow that's super neat.
  • This should be an accepted answer, as it replaces a checkbox without any third party plug-in or extensive CSS
  • This is a fantastic answer, thanks @chriswnl. I removed the jQuery but still indicate checked status via CSS's :checked pseudo class: jsfiddle.net/m9zj5Ldw
  • The only problem of this answer is that when selected the checkbox tick doesn't show.
  • Excellent, simple.
