Styling radio button and checkbox

After determining the size, you can set color and border width. Not only that, you can define the border radius for checkboxes and radio buttons. Choosing the opportunity between normal and checked can also be beneficial in some cases.
Modify section break
Even on the section break, you can apply the amazing options powered by EA Fluent Forms. Let’s begin with the changing color of the label and customizing the typography. More settings will come after. If you write a description for the section break, you can manage the setting for that too.
Beautiful checkbox grid
If you choose the checkable grid style, there will be options for you to edit and make the grid tables more efficient. Start changing with the table head and set color and background color. Two more enticing features are customization of height and padding.
For the grid table item, you will get the same options as the table head. The only difference is, you have to choose an odd item background color. Typography is available on both parts, and changing font size, and other things are possible.
Beautify submit button
Don’t feel compromised with the default submit button of Fluent Forms. A lot more options will come into action when you choose EA Fluent Forms. Alignment, width, background color – you can modify everything to make the button more appealing.
Right after changing the background color, select text color as the way it looks great. Update border style with type and border radius. Box shadow and typography are last but not the least two fantastic options for the submit button.
Notify with messages
Showing error and success messages are two default features of Fluent Forms. With EA Fluent Forms, you can do a lot more with the two messages. You can select Show or Hide to display error messages or not to display.
While showing the success message, you can change the background color and text color along with giving borders a particular style. Moreover, you can improve typography efficaciously. A similar style is available for the error message.
Advanced features for sophisticated users
Tweak your forms in a totally new position with all the cutting-edge customization options. You can accomplish your goal with those advanced functionalities even though you couldn’t imagine some of them.
Besides margin and padding, you can set other options for CSS. Specify the stack order of an element with z-index. Provide the CSS ID and classes to see more actions on your form.
