document body에 있는 active link의 색깔을 설정하거나 설정된 값을 리턴합니다. 링크는 mousedownmouseup 이벤트가 발생하는 중간에 활성화(active)됩니다.


color = document.alinkColor
document.alinkColor =color

color는 색깔의 이름을 포함하는 문자열 (e.g., "blue", "darkblue", etc.) 혹은 색깔의 16진수 값으로 설정할 수 있습니다(e.g., #0000FF).


The default value for this property in Mozilla Firefox is red (#ee0000 in hexadecimal).

document.alinkColor is deprecated in DOM Level 2 HTML. One alternative is the CSS selector :active.

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

Gecko supports both alinkColor/:active and :focus. Internet Explorer 6 and 7 support alinkColor/:active only for HTML anchor (<a>) links and the behavior is the same as :focus under Gecko. There is no support for :focus in IE.


DOM Level 0. Not part of any standard.
