Please see the attached image. Is the little triangle pointing to the word Login done with css or an image. Is this technique possible in form designer or SD?

I don't have FD, but the attached method in SD may be of interest.

Eric, you seem to have managed to style the three sides of the triangle independently. How did you manage that? I've tried the same, but I had no luck with it.

Frank, your solution is brilliant! I've seen the same thing earlier, with half circles apparently hanging down from someting and the other half hidden behind the 'something'.

Hi Inger, Eric's solution is really cool. I'll refer you to this site, https://css-tricks.com/snippets/css/css-triangle/ . There is an animation near the end of the page that makes the trick easy to see.

To me it's hard to want to use this method since it really is a trick. I took me a while to understand it. I would have to use comments to work it out. A new guy might really be confused if he's not familiar with it.

Hello Frank, I like your because it easy to understand the rotation of a box with a div on top. It's almost self describing code.

Thank you all.

Select the left and right side of the border and set their properties.
Now unselect them and select the bottom and set its properties.
No tricks just treats.
