document.linkColor Redirect 1

« document

This feature has been removed from the Web. Though some browsers may still support it, it is in the process of being dropped. Do not use it in old or new projects. Pages or Web apps using it may break at any time.


linkColor gets/sets the color of links within the document.


color = document.linkColor
document.linkColor = color


  • color is a string representing the color as a word (e.g., "red") or hexadecimal value (e.g., "#ff0000").


The default value for this property in Mozilla Firefox is blue (#0000ee in hexadecimal).

document.linkColor is deprecated in DOM Level 2 HTML.

Alternatives involve the use of the CSS color property on either HTML anchor (<a>) links (e.g., a {color:red;}) or :link pseudo-class (e.g., :link {color:red;}).

Another alternative is document.body.link, although this is deprecated in HTML 4.01.


document.linkColor = "blue";
