Beautiful Forms With CSS + JavaScript

Niceforms is a script that will replace the most commonly used form elements with custom designed ones. You can either use the default theme that is provided or you can even develop your own look with minimal effort.

The script will basically transform this:

Normal HTML Form Elements

Into this (or whatever you want it to look like):

CSS Styled Form Elements

Niceforms, a script to beautify web forms, was very popular for creating beautiful forms. And now the 2nd version is out. Niceforms 2.0 is a totally re-written version which is very easy to apply, handles more elements & has more customization options.

The script simply replaces the most commonly used form elements with custom designed ones. Inserting the niceforms.js & the CSS file is enough to use it. Besides the default theme, new themes can be developed with CSS editing. Niceforms works in all modern browsers except IE6 (it gracefully degrades).

Using Niceforms

Niceforms is applied to all forms that have the class “niceform”. You can have other classes in there as well but one of them has to be “niceform” in order for the script to work. One of the important aspects of the script is that it requires a correctly coded form, including properly declared labels and values. There‚Äôs not much room for error and, if anything, it will force you to code your forms correctly.
