Understanding a toggle

I have jsut built an app using a sharepoint list containing quite a few yes/no columns.

These appear as grey toggles on a grey background (why?). The only indication that an item is on (true) is that the grey button is on the right. Unless my user happens to know this already, then when looking at  list of options it isn't going to be obvious which way is which. The only aternative I can see on the properties is to disply True False which isn't helpful for most people either.


I hoped to change the colour to make on look more "on" e.g. liek it was LED glowing.


I can change the borders the fill of the box the toggle is in but not apparently any element of the gogle. So i can have an if function that chanegs the border based on the value of the toggle. 

I feel I am missing something.


Also toggles take up a lot of spacewhen layout is vertical and are better horziontal (label next to toggle). But multi-line text is the other way around  -hroziontal is not very efficeint. So can I have just toggle horizontal on my disply from? [I don;t think so because although layout is reported as a property of a field it seems to affect the whole form only].


Hi @VincentM and @Baldgyt,


The toggle show grey under Details screen should be by default.

We have collected this as a feedabck.

I was having the same issue...then I decided to "expand" the box to make it larger and low and behold, the label could show now that the box was big enough to display everything.
