  • In the HTML file, we will just use the h1 tag and create a div for the colorbox
  • Inside the CSS file, the colorbox is styled and to change the background color box contains some colors on clicking them the user can the color easily.
  • In the javascript, we are calling a function bgchange, which contains an array of colors and it is applied to the background when the user clicks on the color.

HTML File: index.html HTML layout is created using the div tag, id attribute, and anchor tags for function calls. It defines the structure of the web page.

CSS File: style.css By using CSS properties, we will decorate the web page and make it look attractive. color, width, height, and position properties are given as per the requirement of the project.

JavaScript File: script.js JavaScript code is used to give functionality to web pages. Here we used the arrow function with the “id” parameter.

h1 {
    color: #6203e0;
    margin-bottom: 2rem;
#colorbox {
    width: 30%;
    display: flex;
    align-items: center;
    justify-content: space-around;
    padding: 1rem;
    background-color: #fff;
    box-shadow: 0 2px 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1);
    border-radius: 4px;
#colorbox span {
    display: inline-block;
    width: 30px;
    height: 30px;
    border-radius: 50%;
    cursor: pointer;


function bgchange(color) {
    let colorarray = ["#e58e26", "#f9b4ab", "#B1FB17", "#78e08f", "#fd79a8"]; = colorarray[color];
var colorarray = ["#e58e26", "#f9b4ab", "#B1FB17", "#78e08f", "#fd79a8"];
var colorbox = document.getElementById("colorbox");
colorarray.forEach(function (color, index) {
    let span = document.createElement("span"); = color;
    span.addEventListener("click", function () {

Output: In the below-given GIF you can see that whenever the user clicks on the color the background color is changing according to that.
