In my css I've added a border to all input fields. This is fine for text input but if I want button input fields to retain their default styling is there anyway to do that after having set a border for all inputs?

I want to avoid having to add a class for text inputs, I just want to add a class for button inputs to reset their styling.

Use the <button> tag instead of <input type="button">

Try this in your css:

input:not(input[type=button]) {
 // your code here
}

Open in new window


it will affect all input fields except buttons.

...you can play with attribute selectors, you can style for example only text fields and textarea:

input[type=text],
textarea  {
 // your code here
}

Open in new window


etc...

CSS is cascading -- so put --

INPUT.TEXT first with border, then
INPUT.IMG second with no border
