    Document.bgColor

    Deprecated
    This feature has been removed from the Web standards. 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.

     bgColor gets/sets the background color of the current document.

    Syntax

    color = document.bgColor
    document.bgColor =color 
    

    Parameters

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

    Example

    document.bgColor = "darkblue"; 
    

    Notes

    The default value for this property in Mozilla Firefox is white (#ffffff in hexadecimal).

    document.bgColor is deprecated in DOM Level 2 HTML. The recommended alternative is use of the CSS style background-color which can be accessed through the DOM with document.body.style.backgroundColor. Another alternative is document.body.bgColor, although this is also deprecated in HTML 4.01 in favor of the CSS alternative.
