You can change the style of your checkbox through custom CSS.

Add a header and footer on your form, disable HTML Editor and paste this code:

/* The container */
.container {
  display: block;
  position: relative;
  padding-left: 35px;
  margin-bottom: 12px;
  cursor: pointer;
  font-size: 22px;
  -webkit-user-select: none;
  -moz-user-select: none;
  -ms-user-select: none;
  user-select: none;

/* Hide the browser's default checkbox */
.container input {
  position: absolute;
  opacity: 0;
  cursor: pointer;
  height: 0;
  width: 0;

/* Create a custom checkbox */
.checkmark {
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  height: 25px;
  width: 25px;
  background-color: #eee;

/* On mouse-over, add a grey background color */
.container:hover input ~ .checkmark {
  background-color: #ccc;

/* When the checkbox is checked, add a blue background */
.container input:checked ~ .checkmark {
  background-color: #2196F3;

/* Create the checkmark/indicator (hidden when not checked) */
.checkmark:after {
  content: "";
  position: absolute;
  display: none;

/* Show the checkmark when checked */
.container input:checked ~ .checkmark:after {
  display: block;

/* Style the checkmark/indicator */
.container .checkmark:after {
  left: 9px;
  top: 5px;
  width: 5px;
  height: 10px;
  border: solid white;
  border-width: 0 3px 3px 0;
  -webkit-transform: rotate(45deg);
  -ms-transform: rotate(45deg);
  transform: rotate(45deg);

Then create an HTML block, (Disable HTML Editor) paste this code:

<label class="container">One
  <input id="cbx" type="checkbox">
<span class="checkmark"></span>

Set your Checkbox to "Hidden".

Finally, add this script to your footer


var cbx = document.querySelector('#cbx');
var chk_field = document.querySelector('[id*=check_box]');

cbx.onchange = function() {
chk_field.checked = cbx.checked;



Check out the screen shot and output of this: 




So what I did  here is I created a customized Checkbox and hid the checkbox field I have in Caspio.

The use of the script is to pass the value of the dummy checkbox I created so it can still the data. 


Let me know if this works for you @Vanellope:)

Hi everyone - Just wanted to share this solution for changing the color of the checkbox, you can insert this inside the Header.


input[id="InsertRecordFIELDNAME"] {
filter: hue-rotate(102deg) !important;



You can use these other properties as well:
accent-color: name of color - same here: 


filter: grayscale(1)

Hope it helps!
