Custom survey CSS

A custom survey style allows you to change the look and feel of your survey.

Each survey page has a body class of .survey-page-N, where N is the page number. You can use this to style each page separately, if needed.

Within the page there are two main containers for your questions – .PDF_pageOuter refers to the overall page container, and .PDF_pageInner to the survey content (i.e. your questions).

Questions

All questions are contained within a .PDF_question element, and are always followed by a .PDF_questionDivide. Each question has an ID of pd-question-N, and the divider pd-divider-N.

A question can contain a number .qNumber, and will always contain question content .qContent.

The question content will generally contain a title .qTitle, a note .qNote, and HTML specific to the question type.
