    I want my clients to be able to pick colors for buttons,table borders, table headers

    I want my clients to be able to pick colors for buttons,table borders, table headers ect...

    This way they can get an idea of what the site will look like before it's built.

    I'm looking for something intuitive like this:

    http://www.pagetutor.com/colorpicker/index.html

    Any ideas how I can get this done?

    I've looked for hours and hours and hours but nothing!

    Thanks

    That's fairly easy to do.

    If I had to put my hand to it I'd go about it this way:
    First, create your style sheet for the entire site. Make sure to keep all elements grouped, so that you can globally apply style changes across the board. Then, access your css selectors and reapply color and font values.

    At the end of the day, this really is just DHTML. Not much to it.
    If you need some examples, let me know... I'm sure I can put something small together.

    If you'd like to see how it was done on that site, view this:

    But I think they've made it a little difficult. Applying changes to a document can be done in a much easier manner.

    Can you show me an example?

    Hi Pip,

    I really need this done...but I have very little money and am struggling to stay in Thailand at the moment, don't want to go back to Canada....

    How much would it cost me for you to set this up? I only need it for one page.

    Or if you have a website I can link to you and put a link to your site from my clients sites also.

    I would need the color picker for the following elements.

    Header
    Footer
    Main Frame
    Text Links
    Borders (tables ect...)
    Table header
    Background

    Unfortunately, I have very little time on my hands to do a proper job at it. But let me see what I can do. I'll get back to you.
