Adding Colors and Pictures to HTML Table

We can change background of a table in two ways. We can add different Colors as background of an HTML Table as well as we can add pictures as a Table background.

HTML Background Color

We can use bgcolor attribute of a Table to add colors as background.

You can use color names or use hexadecimal color code in bgcolor attribute.


HTML Source Code :

You can set bgcolor attribute either in Table level or in each Cells.

The above code will change only the particular cell color to red.

The background attribute allows you to change the background inside your table to that of an image of your choice.

You can set background images to each cells.

If the image dimensions are smaller than the table dimensions and there is enough space in the table, the image will repeat.
