Deprecated

This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The HTMLTableElement.bgcolor property represents the background color of the table.

The bgColor attribute is deprecated in HTML 4.01. The CSS background-color property should be used instead by modifying the element's style object or using a style rule.

Also available on DOM tbody, row and cell objects.

table.bgColor = color

Parameters
