Experts,

I have a php page, with the following style specified within the head section;

<style type="text/css">
td.clickable { background: orange; color: red; cursor: pointer; }
</style>

Within the page I output some data from my database, with the following;

echo "<TR onclick=\"location.href='somelink.htm';\" onmouseover=\"this.className='clickable';\" onmouseout=\"this.className='';\">\n";

echo "<TD><a href='viewasset.php?varl=".$row['ID']."' class=\"blue5\">".$row['ID']."</a></font></TD><TD>".$row['CSName']."</TD><TD>".$row['SystemOrganization']."</TD><TD>".$row['LastAudit']."</TD><TD>".$row['LastAudit']."</TD></TD>\n";

echo "</TR>\n";

I would like to change the row colour, and use the row itself as a link?  This is currently not working.

this.className='highlight'
should be
this.className='clickable'

Check your code as the code you posted would put clickable in it but the view-source is showing highlight. If not sure change the style to

<style type="text/css">
tr.clickable { background: orange; color: red; cursor: pointer; }
tr.highlight { background: orange; color: red; cursor: pointer; }
</style>

I've tried it with just code and it works.

<html>
<head>
<style>
tr.clickable {background: orange; color: red; cursor: pointer}
tr.normal {background: white; color: black; cursor: default}
</style>
</head>

<body>
<table>
<tr onclick="location.href='http://www.google.com';" onMouseOver="this.className = 'clickable'" onmouseout="this.className = 'normal'">
      <td>Test</td><td>Test2</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>
