Document.fgColor

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.

Summary

fgColor gets/sets the foreground color, or text color, of the current document.

Syntax

var color = document.fgColor;
document.fgColor = color;

Parameters

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

Example

document.fgColor = "white";
document.bgColor = "darkblue";

Notes

The default value for this property in Mozilla Firefox is black (#000000 in hexadecimal).

document.fgColor is deprecated in DOM Level 2 HTML. The recommended alternative is the CSS property color (e.g., document.body.style.color = "red").

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