document.vlinkColor 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.


 Gets/sets the color of links that the user has visited in the document.


color = document.vlinkColor
document.vlinkColor =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 purple (#551a8b in hexadecimal).

document.vlinkColor is deprecated in DOM Level 2 HTML.

The recommended alternative is to get/set the color of the CSS :visited pseudo-class on HTML anchor (<a>) links (e.g., a:visited {color:red;}).

Another alternative is document.body.vLink, although this is deprecated in HTML 4.01 in favor of the CSS alternative.
