script.aculo.us InPlaceEditor highlightColor Option

  • Last Updated : 26 Nov, 2020

The script.aculo.us library is a cross-browser library that aims at improving the user interface of a website. The Ajax.InPlaceEditor is used to make elements editable thereby allowing the user to edit content on the page and submit the changes to the server.

The InPlaceEditor highlightColor option is used to specify the color to be used when the user hovers over an editable element. The color must be specified in six hex digits. The default color is a shade of yellow.

Syntax:

{ highlightColor : color }

Parameters: This option has a single value as mentioned above and described below:

  • color: This is a string that specifies the color to be used when the user hovers over an editable element. The default color is a shade of yellow.

The below example illustrates the use of this option.



Example:

The below script is required to simulate the saving of data to the server.

PHP




<?php
  if( isset($_REQUEST["value"]) ) {
    $str = $_REQUEST["value"];
    echo $str;
  }
?>

The below script demonstrates this with the example:
