Hi all,

Can I just check that my understanding is correct on how to 'beautify' a Formidable View.  

Let's say I have 4 fields, and I want a box around a group of 2 fields together.

Am I right that I would define my CSS class in the custom styling tab and then call the class code from the views editor which is published to a page? So, as well as the the provided formidable classes, I can create my own.

Is that about right, in a nutshell? I'm trying to beautify a view, and just wondered what goes where.

Much appreciated.

You have complete control over view styling. Visual Views are displayed with CSS Grid. In the view designer, each CSS grid element can have its own custom HTML. When you open the editor, use the text tab to format your HTML. Use custom classes or in-line styles as you would with any HTML. You can add view specific styles to the before fields area on the view designer page. jQuery you can add to the after fields area. You place the custom code there so the view can be packaged as part of your application in the event that you decide to sell it if its functionality appeals to a general audience.
