Hey everyone.

I haven't been on DaniWeb in a while.

.x-accordion-header {
	width: 100%;
	color: #ffffff;
	background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear,0% 0,0% 100%,color-stop(0%,#[B]96A9C0[/B]),color-stop(2%,#[B]5A7596[/B]),color-stop(100%,#[B]394B5F[/B]));

Is it possible to include a 'variable' or 'property' in css?

The reason why I am asking is because I want to change the background colour of the css header for multiple object types.

Say I checked for the type either via PHP or Javascript with a case statement or an IF ELSE ... I would want to be able to assign a certain colour based on the object type to the headers css.

Any hints or tips or suggestions would be appreciated.

Many Thanks

No, you can't use variables or placeholders in CSS. Why would you even want to, though?

Using PHP, it's as simple as assigning a second class (.green for green background, .blue for blue background, etc.) and you should be covered.

thanks for your reply

I'm very new to php, so I automatically started trying to think of a solution in a syntax I was familiar with (sort of - I have a lot to learn)

I was thinking maybe about using javascript 'prototype' to overwrite the css style applied with a new one based on a certain type ...
