Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules

When the focus is on any button, it is not highlighted for accessibility users.

For highlighting the button, script needs to be added in the accessibility css rule "workform_accessibility.css".


Add the below code snippet in userworkform:

input:not([type="radio"]):not([type="checkbox"]):focus,textarea:focus,select:focus,button.pzhc:focus,a:focus {
outline: 0;
border: 2px solid #006dff;
button.Standard:focus {
background: #C9D2D0;
button.Strong:focus {
border-color: #d14702;
button.Simple:focus {
border-color: #444444;
