using javascript to change the selectedIndex of select element does not cause it to fire the onchange event. you need to manually change the color.

<body>  <form>    <input type="reset" class="resetButton" />    <select id="colors">      <option value="white"></option>      <option value="red">AB</option>      <option value="blue">BC</option>      <option value="green">CD</option>      <option value="orange">DE</option>    </select>  </form>  <script>  $('document').ready(function(){    $("#colors").change(function(){      $(this).css({"background-color":$(this).val()});    });    $('.resetButton').click(function(){      $("#colors").val("white").change();    });  });  </script></body>

Style options


css (does not require JavaScript to be enabled)

            #colors option {color: white;}            option[value='red']{background-color: red;}            option[value='blue']{background-color: blue;}            option[value='green']{background-color: green;}            option[value='orange']{background-color: orange;}




$("#colors option").each(function() {                 $(this).css({'background-color': $(this).val(), 'color': 'white'});                 });
