Background Color Changer in a new page

Postby Stephen » Fri Jul 06, 2012 12:28 pm

Hi All,

Im am very new to PHP, Im trying to write a background colour changer that when the form is submitted a new page displays the colour they selected.
Here is the code I have so far. I think the code on this page is ok. The problem I have is I really dont know how to get it working on the second page. .

Code: Select all

// creates a session that is kept between the pages


$selected_radio = $_POST['color'];

if($selected_radio =='white')
$white_status = 'checked';
$color = 'fffff';

else if
($selected_radio =='pink')
$pink_status = 'checked';
$color = 'FF00FF';

else if
($selected_radio =='green')
$green_status ='checked';

<FORM NAME ="form1" METHOD="POST" ACTION="page2.php">
<input type="radio" name="color" value="colour" onClick=document.bgColor=fffff">White
<input type="radio" name="color" value="colour" onClick=document.bgColor=FF00FF">pink
<input type="radio" name="color" value="colour" onClick=document.bgColor=008000">green
<INPUT TYPE ="Submit" Name = "Submit1" VALUE=CHANGECOLOUR>

any help greatly appreciated

When you go to the second page, pick the color that was posted and show that as the background color for the new page.
