Me

Vadim Tabakman, based out of Utah, USA. Combining over 20 years experience in Software Development, Design, Pre-Sales and Technical Support and Consulting, I've covered a wide spectrum of the Software Development Life Cycle. It has given me a unique perspective on how software is developed, compared to what users actually want to do with it.

In the last 8+ years, I have been performing pre-sales, developing and supporting solutions for SharePoint and Nintex.

Below, you'll see the current builds of Nintex products that I work with on a daily basis.

You can find me on Twitter, on LinkedIn and hanging around on Nintex Connect.

Some people have asked me why Delegation is not an option. Unfortunately, there's a limitation that was found in SharePoint Online, where there doesn't seem to be permissions on tasks that are generated by a workflow. This pretty much removes the... read more

It’s been a while, but I think, this post will have some valuable information for you if you work a lot with Nintex Workflow. In Nintex you can create new sites, apply templates, define the URL, etc. but one thing that was always missing is the ability to create SharePoint groups for the newly created […]

The Nintex Form 'Choice Control' allows users to choose between different display formats, such as: 

  • Check boxes (Multiple-Selection)
  • Drop down list
  • List (Multiple-Selection)
  • Option Buttons

The Option Buttons display format initially appears as radio buttons, but what if we wanted them to show as actual buttons?

<img class="thumb-image" data-image="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5e565d2b857a4ad93b129/1488315759109/" data-image-dimensions="339x44" data-image-focal-point="0.5,0.5" data-load="false" data-image-id="58b5e565d2b857a4ad93b129" data-type="image" src="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5e565d2b857a4ad93b129/1488315759109/?format=1000w" />

Change the 'Render as buttons' value from No (default) to Yes and the radio buttons will now appear as buttons.

<img class="thumb-image" data-image="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5e5d0be65948b074ddba6/1488315862262/" data-image-dimensions="693x172" data-image-focal-point="0.5,0.5" data-load="false" data-image-id="58b5e5d0be65948b074ddba6" data-type="image" src="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5e5d0be65948b074ddba6/1488315862262/?format=1000w" /> <img class="thumb-image" data-image="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5e609ff7c500e3da1c7dd/1488315920287/" data-image-dimensions="253x43" data-image-focal-point="0.5,0.5" data-load="false" data-image-id="58b5e609ff7c500e3da1c7dd" data-type="image" src="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5e609ff7c500e3da1c7dd/1488315920287/?format=1000w" />

This is a great feature of Nintex Forms, but what if you wanted to really change the value of the background color of a selected option button when selected? 

Here comes simple CSS to apply this change!

The Build

So far, all that has been placed on the form is a Choice Control, with the display format as 'Option Buttons' and the Render as buttons setting set to 'Yes'. If you have accomplished this already, you're ready for adding some CSS. If not, please add the control and make the required setting changes.

The Code

The Choice control is different in how it is displays in the DOM and you'll need to dig to see if there is an attribute associated with the selected button that will allow you to change the color. Using the Developer Tools (F12), walk through the DOM Explorer to find the choice control element.

<img class="thumb-image" data-image="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5e82bf7e0abb43a52351a/1488316468516/" data-image-dimensions="271x55" data-image-focal-point="0.5,0.5" data-load="false" data-image-id="58b5e82bf7e0abb43a52351a" data-type="image" src="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5e82bf7e0abb43a52351a/1488316468516/?format=1000w" />

So what does this look like in the DOM? There are two portions to pay attention to:

  • The button text is located in a <span> element, but there isn't any way to see if that <span> has been selected. 
  • The parent element of the <span> is a <label> element, which contains an attribute, aria-pressed="true". Now we got it!
<img class="thumb-image" data-image="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5e8d444024365b09dd259/1488316639128/" data-image-dimensions="544x116" data-image-focal-point="0.5,0.5" data-load="false" data-image-id="58b5e8d444024365b09dd259" data-type="image" src="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5e8d444024365b09dd259/1488316639128/?format=1000w" />

Add the following code in your Custom CSS section under Form Settings in the Forms Designer and you can target the span element, who is a child of a label element, but only when the label element has an attribute of aria-pressed=true.

label[aria-pressed=true]>span {
    background-color: #73E1DF !important;
}

The Result

<img class="thumb-image" data-image="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5ea5903596ecacd10f4dd/1488317021299/" data-image-dimensions="268x60" data-image-focal-point="0.5,0.5" data-load="false" data-image-id="58b5ea5903596ecacd10f4dd" data-type="image" src="https://static1.squarespace.com/static/55dca63ae4b0f52ff87643b4/t/58b5ea5903596ecacd10f4dd/1488317021299/?format=1000w" />

The hex code of the selected button can be any color, but this will give an idea of how easy it is to change a background color on the Choice control of your Nintex Form.
