    Implementation steps​

    1. create alternative image to default_rounded/images/alert.png
    2. upload to your_form_template/alert.png
    3. create alternative image to media/com_fabrik/notempty.png (i made this a transparent png in my example)
    4. upload to server and overwrite (will update this step when i know how to override media folder files)
    5. change error message css

    How to change error message css​

    In, e.g. 'default_rounded' template's template_css.php, find:

    CSS:
    .{$view}_$c .fabrikError,
    .{$view}_$c .fabrikNotice,
    .{$view}_$c .fabrikValidating,
    .{$view}_$c .fabrikSuccess {
    font-weight: bold;
    }

    .{$view}_$c .fabrikMainError {
    height:2em;
    line-height:2em;
    }

    .{$view}_$c .fabrikMainError img {
    padding:0.35em 1em;
    float:left;
    }

    .{$view}_$c .fabrikNotice {
    color: #009FBF;
    background: #DFFDFF url(images/alert.png) no-repeat center left !important;
    }

    .{$view}_$c .fabrikError,
    .{$view}_$c .fabrikGroup .fabrikError {
    color: #c00;
    background: #EFE7B8;
    }

    .{$view}_$c .fabrikErrorMessage {
    padding-right: 5px;
    }
    and replace with:
    CSS:
    .{$view}_$c .fabrikError,
    .{$view}_$c .fabrikNotice,
    .{$view}_$c .fabrikValidating,
    .{$view}_$c .fabrikSuccess {
    font-weight: bold;
    }

    .{$view}_$c .fabrikMainError {
    display: none;
    }

    .{$view}_$c .fabrikMainError img {
    display: none;
    }

    .{$view}_$c .fabrikNotice {
    color: #009FBF;
    background: #DFFDFF url(images/alert.png) no-repeat center left !important;
    }

    .{$view}_$c .fabrikError {
    }

    .{$view}_$c .fabrikGroup .fabrikError {
    border: 0px;
    border-radius: 10px;
    background-color: #C7C7C7 !important;
    background-image: none !important;
    color: #4C4C4C;
    margin-bottom: 0px;
    font-weight: normal;
    padding-left:10px;
    margin-top: 10px;
    }

    .{$view}_$c .fabrikErrorMessage {
    padding-right: 5px;
    position: absolute;
    right: 0px;
    }

    Bugs​

    Firefox is not adding padding-left to the text in the tooltips associated with the 'alert.png' icon - if anyone can figure out how to fix this in firefox it would be much appreciated.

    The 'spinner' background is not covering the whole width of the form and therefore the background of the 'required field' is showing to the right of the 'spinner' area when navigating between pages on a multipage form.
