Using a drop-down menu to change a stylesheet

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,


Can anyone explain or point me in the right direction for using a drop-down menu to change the external stylesheet my page uses? Can this be done by just using HTML or will I need a script to do it?

Here is a script that should work. I used it on a website once before. This uses a ul instead of form code you could do the same thing with form code though. This is a simple script. You may prefer the link that Ben posted because it saves the option through cookies.



<link href="style1.css" id="myCSS">
<ul id="navigation">
	<li><a href="#" id="style1">Style 1</a></li>
	<li><a href="#" id="style2">Style 2</a></li>



function style2() {
document.getElementById("myCSS").setAttribute("href", "style2.css");
function style1() {
document.getElementById("myCSS").setAttribute("href", "style1.css");
window.onload = function() {
document.getElementById('style2').onclick = style2;
document.getElementById('style1').onclick = style1;

Better if you go for Java script instead of HTML,and look at following code:

<script type="text/javascript">

$(function() {

$("#giveAId").change(function(){ //2 step

var stylesheet = $(this).val(); // 3 step

$('link').attr('href',stylesheet+ '.css'); //4 step done here







<div style="float:right;padding:26px 0 0 0;color:#fff;">

<select id="giveAId"> // 1 step

<option>please select your choice</option>

<option value="one">blue</option>

<option value="two">pink</option>
