cssclass option does not apply class to help text
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When adding a CSS class to an HTMLForm element using the "cssclass" option the class is not applied to the text that is displayed below the element that is provided in the "help" option.

This is counter-intuitive and if the cssclass option is not applied to the help text a separate option should be provided to allow the styling of the help text.
