Black text on an ORANGE background would be good to alert the user. Orange is widely associated with a problem, and gives more contrast than red with the pink form background.

Building off of several other answers: Never only rely on color. Adding an icon or text or texture not only helps colorblind people, but also makes things a bit easier for regular-seeing people. Using a dark grey or black bar gives a strong contrast with the background. It's also color neutral so you can put other kinds/colors of notifications in those ...

You might try adding a white border, then play with the background color. The one color that communicates 'something is wrong' louder than red is the color of death, black.

The standard color for error messages is red, see this question : One important point to understand is that using conventional colors for errors is important because they make the errors more noticeable. User being annoyed by the color of error message is lot less of a problem than user not being able to complete the form because they didn't ...

The question actually provided a lot of the alternate options available, but for clarity I thought it would be good to summarize some of the answers provided: Find a complementary colour to use that will stand out - there are plenty of tools for this, and you can also consult the branding guidelines as a secondary check; this could be for the UI, the font ...

I would go with something in the shade of the background, but have a more red text in the alert. You can add a border in the shade of the text to make it stand out as an error more, as well.

I feel bad that you have to work with this background color. Oof, i just can't even wrap my head around how that decision came to pass. At any rate, if that's not a variable you have influence over then I'd go with a color that'll always retain stark contrast. I'd also avoid venturing too far outside of the styles that that users are generally familiar ...

You could also try a light red background for the alert:

A bright yellow background with black text would work well. Fits the colour scheme of a warning sign.

That's an accessibility nightmare! Try reversing your error message styles: Red text on a white background.

Yes, the tester has a point. He is thinking from end-user's perspective. So when user usually clicks some animation/click effect should be shown so as to show user that the click was successful. Imagine if the click effect is not there, user will click multiple times by mistake resulting in some weird operation maybe. Remember one of the golden rules of ...

Before answering the usability question, I want to make this note: The non-IOS functionality here would be correct, according to your code. There's no css:hover or css:active loadout. I don't know if it's a loading issue related to white flashes, or if it's an intentional change by iOS. But your site/element as is shouldn't be flashing. Can after-effects ...

Based on the little knowledge I have, you should not base your app behavior only on the OS (or device browser) default behavior, because it can (and will) be different. But rather provide your own behavior, this way users can recognize and expect your app to have the same workflow across devices, plataforms, browsers and so on. Doesn't matter where he access ...

I just wanted to share here how I improved my original version, it works now. Live demo. Not optimal yet in terms of UX, I'll update thanks to all your contributions in the different answers and useful remarks. As pointed by some people, I'll add the months as well. (Any idea of how to do it is JavaScript without hardcoding ['Jan', 'Feb', 'Mar' ...]?)

You can tell better but since you mentioned that 90% time the dates will be within next 10 days - I am assuming that the user pretty much starts off with a date in mind, rather than thinking which date to pick. So in essence he/she is clear with the date (which is approaching soon), and just needs to select what is in mind. With that assumption, check the ...
