HTMLTableElement.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.

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.

Syntax

color = table.bgColor
table.bgColor =
color

Parameters

  • color is a string representing a color value.

Example

// Set table background colour to lightblue
var t = document.getElementById('TableA');
t.bgColor = 'lightblue';
