How to force a button inside a div not to inherit the parent CSS?

Tags: css

Problem :

I have a div in which which there is a form and a submit button; I ahve given the form the following CSS:

background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(5%, #fff), color-stop(90%, #f2f2f2));

this background is applied to my button CSS which a bootstrap button; how can I force it not to inherit from the parent?



The whole CSS:

width: 40%;
height: 40%;
margin-right: auto;
margin-left: auto;
background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(5%, #fff), color-stop(90%, #f2f2f2));

box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #888888;border: 2px solid #d6d6d6;


Solution :

The problem was due to the fact that you have 2 controls with the same id of upload. Your wrapping div and your submit button.

To fix it, simply remove the id and name attributes from the submit button. You also had invalid br tags. I fixed those too.

See working jsFiddle demo

I'll leave you to clean up the markup and css to make the box and its controls line up and look all pretty. =D


<div id="upload">
    <form action='http://test' method='post' accept-charset='utf-8' class='form-horizontal' enctype='multipart/form-data' style='text-align:center;'>
        <br />
        <div class='control-group'>
            <input type='file' name='userfile' value='' id='userfile' class='btn btn-primary' required='true' style=' width:290px;' />
            <br />
            <br />
            <label for='name'>Name</label>
            <input type='text' name='associateName' value='' id='name' required='required' placeholder='Name' />
        <div class='control-group'>
            <label for='dept'>Department Name</label>
            <input type='text' name='dept' value='' id='dept' required='required' placeholder='Department Name' />
            <br />
            <input id='startDateUpload' name='startDateUpload' value='" + $.datepicker.formatDate(dateFormat, startDate, inst.settings) + "' type='hidden' />
            <input id='endDateUpload' name='endDateUpload' value='" + $.datepicker.formatDate(dateFormat, endDate, inst.settings) + "' type='hidden' />
            <input id='seg' name='seg' value='0' type='hidden' />
            <input id='total' name='total' type='hidden' />
        <input type='submit' value='Upload' class='con btn btn-primary' />


    width: 40%;
    height: 40%;
    margin-right: auto;
    margin-left: auto;
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(5%, #fff), color-stop(90%, #f2f2f2));
    box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #888888;
    border: 2px solid #d6d6d6;
