Formatting background color in a Html Text control for Email Submission

I have a screen where I placed an HTML Text control that calls data from another screen where the user will enter data into text input controls.

 

I have it all set, but for some reason I cannot get the background color to change. I can change the Fill property, and that will show on the screen, but not in the email it sends out. All other styles in my HTML show up just fine in the email (Like table headers, and alternating row colors).

 

Our company has a specific color scheme, and I would like to set my email submission from the App to match that.

 

Here is the code I have:

"<center><font size='6' style='color:#3053a5'>New Customer</font><br><font size='5'><b>" & EnterNameNC & "</b></Font></center>" &
"<u style='color:#337ab7'><b style=color:#3053a5'>Invoice Account</u></b><br>" &
If(IsBlank(NewInvoiceNameNC), "","<b style=color:#000000'>Invoice Account Name: </b>" & NewInvoiceNameNC  & "<i> (If differnt from Customer Name)</i><br>") &
"<b>Tax Exempt: </b>" & If(TaxExemptNC.Value = true, "Yes <i>(Must submit Tax Exempt Certificate)</i>", "No") & "<br>" &

Re: Formatting background color in a Html Text control for Email Submission

HTML Text control is really intended to show HTML text.  We have to strip many style and script attributes that can compromise the look and functionality of the page.  So the control is not really intended to show all HTML.


In your case, you can set the background on the actual control itself.

Re: Formatting background color in a Html Text control for Email Submission

so it is not possible yet to change the background color on the HTML?

 

I was trying to do something like this on my html report. https://www.w3schools.com/html/html_layout.asp

 

Will this feature be avaible?
