I am trying to discover a method by which to override the default Nintex styling for the form controls and fields in a list that are automatically populated on creating a new form, or resetting an old one.
While using a custom template and uploading it into central admin does allow me to change the banner, new forms still populate with blank (non-styled or nintex-styled controls) beneath the custom styling, as seen below. (My current template is really only useful with the 'format painter' tool)
Despite extensive web research, I've been unable to find a way where the list fields or controls automatically take the custom css classes or design by default. (I thought that I could style an example of each field/control type on the template for instance, and then new forms would generate with their various fields based on the template example. It didn't work obviously.)
Currently, I need to manually style (or provide a class to) each control to suit the company brand. This is understandably time consuming.
I understand that it may not be possible within Nintex limitations to achieve the full extent of what I want (for instance- it would be necessary to manually specify the different 'header' label classes within the appropriate labels). But I would like to automate things better than the current setup. For instance- how do I get the controls to automatically generate within a custom styled panel, instead of the custom styling (as seen in the example)? This alone would be a major step forward in my template actually becoming useful.
Any advice would be appreciated. I have already read the main 'Nintex form template' tutorials available on the net.
