As kind a newbie I have a simple question. Having a textfield with background-color and border I want to give opacity value only to the background and not to the border:

#textfield {
background-color:#2875DE;
border:2px solid #2cb823;
}
#textfield.background-color {
filter:alpha(opacity=60);
}

This obviously won't work and any ideas of making the textfield with oval shape with opacity only for the background will be much appreciated.

Well, I'm not very good with CSS either, but what I've always done is use a 1 pixel PNG image as the background whenever I need to use opacity. I know there's better ways, but it's always worked fine for me.

Hi there,

Check this code:

#textfield {
  width:400px;
  height:180px;
  margin:30px 50px;
  background-color:blue;
  border:2px solid #2cb823;
  /* for IE */
  filter:alpha(opacity=60);
  /* CSS3 standard */
  opacity:0.6;
}

It might help you.

Regards
Surya
