Change the Border Color of SharePoint List in Quick Edit View (Classic Experience)


In case you have applied a custom background image or color to your site, SharePoint lists in quick edit mode might not be obvious for end users, and they might find it difficult to use the editing feature in the list, see the following image for example:

Not cool, right? We can't see the borders.


We need to apply a CSS customization to convert the background of the search box into white, to improve the user experience, and make it more visible. To fix it, please follow these steps:

Step 1: Open branding and site customization tool

Go to Site Settings > ShortPoint Dashboard > Site Customizations > Customize my site.

Step 2: Paste Custom CSS code

Go to Utilities > Custom CSS and paste the following CSS code:

.ms-listviewtable .ms-listviewgrid td{
border-color: #777 !important;

.ms-listviewtable .ms-listviewgrid th{
border-color: #777 !important;

.ms-InlineSearch-Outline-Empty {
border-color: #777

Now click Apply, then Publish.


Better, right? :)

You can change to ones you like as well.
