I am using JSTL to build a table on my HTML page. How can I use the value of a field to set the back ground color of the row as the table is built?
This is part of my HTML code.

How do I make this part of my HTML code and make it dynamic assign these classes based on the value of a cell?

Moving to JSP since it is not an HTML question.

Where does this "value of a cell" come from?

Use that value to compute the name of the style (urgent or whatever) and put it into a variable. You can use <c:select> for this. Then assign that style to your <tr> element.

Paul, of course, meant <c:choose>.

It is probably not the best way to go but I got some javascript to work on coloring the rows dynamically. How can I add my colors to my CSS and call them from my javascript?

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
