What are you trying to do? Have a user select a color and then a table bgcolor will change?

Try this:

[code=php:0]
<?php
$defaultcolor = "white";
$back_ground = $_POST['back_ground'];
if(!isset($back_ground)) $back_ground = $defaultcolor;
echo "<table width='3%' height='6%' bgcolor='$back_ground'>";
echo "<td>";
?>
Anything can go here
<?php
echo "</td>";
echo "</table>";
?>


<form method="post" action="crap.php">
<select name="back_ground">
<option value="red">Red</option>
<option value="green">Green</option>
<option value="blue">Blue</option>
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="choose colour">
</select>
</form>
[/code]

Modify it to however you like.

This is for the user to choose a color from the pull down box then the database gets that color inserted to database ok.

when that color is inserted to the database then it will change the color to the users selection of what color they want for what ever.


hope you can help cheers.

Get a color from a database? Color gets inserted into the database? What are the fields in your table?

Btw, have you try running the code I posted?

Seems like me and drumminxxx both misunderstood your questions.
