Hello guys, i am back again with yet another simple but interesting tutorial of changing webpage background color using javascript, just copy and paste it to your webpage and customize it according to your webpage design.

<script language="javascript"> 
    function chngebg (id)
    {
        switch (id)
        {
            case 'b1':
                document.body.bgColor = "red";
                break;
                
            case 'b2':
                document.body.bgColor = "blue";
                break;
            
            case 'b3':
                document.body.bgColor = "black";
                break;    
            
            case 'b4':
                document.body.bgColor = "yellow";
                break;   
        }
    }
</script> 
<body> 
<input type="button" id="b1" onclick="chngebg(this.id)" value="Red"/> 
<input type="button" id="b2" onclick="chngebg(this.id)" value="Blue"/> 
<input type="button" id="b3" onclick="chngebg(this.id)" value="Black"/>

    Hi, my friend showed me that you can use javascript to change things in your browser by doing stuff like javascript:”Hi” and that, but I forgot how to change the background color, not of your website, but turn your browser window into a solid color. Help, please?

      You cannot change your browser color as far as i know, you can just change your web-page background.

    I tried to copy this code in, but it didnt work. Thought it might have been due to css attachment so got rid of that but still not working, any suggestions?

      Hello Alan,
      Thanks for your comment, Please check now, I have made the code much easier for copy paste.[Previously some extra character was popping up while copying and that might prevented the code from working, fixed it]
      Please let me know if you have any issues.

    Hello, I find your article useful… However I also need to change the font color along with the background color & also I wonder if you can change the bg color for other div within the same page as well… Is there a way to do that? Thanks. :)

      Hello,
      Thanks for your comment.
      Yes you can do that by using this attribute document.getElementById(‘YOUR DIV NAME’).style.backgroundColor = “YOUR COLOR”

    Thank you for this tutorial.

    How would this be done by having only one link that cycles through several background colours?

    Thanks!

      Hello Frank,
      If that is the case check our New Tutorial Here, It will ask the users which color they need on the website. This should help :-)
