Abstract: Some browser toolbars can affect the color of the input fields on a Web page
Submitted By: LANSA Technical Support

When testing or running a Web application some input fields may have a canary-yellow background regardless of the background color or style selected, for example:

Example of a yellow background on Web forms fields

This may be caused by one of the toolbars installed on your browser. Google Toolbar, MSN Desktop Search toolbar and similar tools have a form Auto-Fill feature which can automatically fill out forms for you. These tools highlight the form fields they can automatically fill. This is not a LANSA for the Web (or WAM) issue.

By disabling the Auto-Fill feature the fields will no longer be highlighted.
