Hello,
I have a pop box that has a transparent background (I think it inherits the css from the parent div's) due to which the background becomes confusing.

How should I avoid a Tranasparent background for only the pop-box anything that I add to the div to make it non transparent ?

assuming the popup div had id="popup", then you just need to specify a background specifically for that div:
#popup{
 background-color:white;
 background-image:url();
}

It sounds like you changed the opacity an an ancestor element.

It's difficult to help without seeing your code.

You would remove the opacity declarations from the ancestor. Opacity is inherited and there is nothing you can do to override it on descendants.

Hi micro_learner,

It might be much easier for you to use an in-line style. CSS applies styling in a very specific order of precedence.

You can override other ancestors by using inline styling:

<div id="popup" style="background-color:white; background-image:url();" >
>POPUP CODE<
</div>

This should work for you.

Best,

Rapturer
