Trying to use drop down menu to display a colour for system status
Iím creating a webpage that will display the status of various IT systems on a large screen. The users will be helpdesk staff who will need to change the statuses of the various systems. Maybe I am approaching this in the wrong way but I thought I could use a drop down menu to enable the helpdesk to select the system status which would be either: Green, Amber or Red. I have managed to hack the following code by using something I found on the web. It almost does what I want but on selecting the colour from the drop down menu it tries to load another page. Is there any way I can stop it from doing this? The webpage should be static and I am aware that reloading it would lose any selections that the user has made.
Thanks for your help. Here is the code:
<select onChange="location=this.options[this.selectedIndex].value;" style="font-family:'Arial';color:#00CC00;background-color:#00CC00;font-size:10pt;">
<option style="font-family:'Arial';color:#FF9900;background-color:#FF9900;font-size:10pt;" value="RED">DOWN</option>
