    String.prototype.fontcolor()

    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

    The fontcolor() method creates a <font> HTML element that causes a string to be displayed in the specified font color.

    Usage note: The <font> element has been removed in HTML5 and shouldn't be used anymore. Instead web developers should use CSS properties.

    Syntax

    str.fontcolor(color)

    Parameters

    color
    A string expressing the color as a hexadecimal RGB triplet or as a string literal. String literals for color names are listed in the CSS color reference.

    Description

    If you express color as a hexadecimal RGB triplet, you must use the format rrggbb. For example, the hexadecimal RGB values for salmon are red=FA, green=80, and blue=72, so the RGB triplet for salmon is "FA8072".

    Examples

    Example: Using fontcolor()

    The following example uses the fontcolor() method to change the color of a string by producing a string with the HTML <font> tag.

    var worldString = 'Hello, world';
    
    console.log(worldString.fontcolor('red') +  ' is red in this line');
    // '<font color="red">Hello, world</font> is red in this line'
    
    console.log(worldString.fontcolor('FF00') + ' is red in hexadecimal in this line');
    // '<font color="FF00">Hello, world</font> is red in hexadecimal in this line'
    

    With the element.style object you can get the element's style attribute and manipulate it more generically, for example:

    document.getElementById('yourElemId').style.color = 'red';
