Changing Hyperlink Colors in Expression Web
We’ll start with a hyperlink that has already been created as seen in the screenshot below. If you’re looking for information on how to create new links, take a look at Part 1 of this series.
To begin, choose Properties from the File menu on the main Expression Web toolbar.
This action will bring up the Page Properties dialog box. Navigate to the Formatting tab within this box.
On this tab, you will see the four hyperlink states described in the previous section. Use the dropdown list next to each state to modify its color. For our example, we will choose some colors that match our web page template.
When you’re finished, click OK to save your choices and exit the Page Properties dialog box.
After you’ve done this, the hyperlink on the design page in Expression Web will change to whatever color you chose for your basic Hyperlink color.
The best way to test the changes you made to the colors of the other hyperlink states is to preview your web page in a web browser. To do this, choose Preview in Browser from the File menu, and select the browser you wish to use.
Once the web page has loaded in your browser, try invoking all of the hyperlink states to make sure the colors are showing up as you had planned.
