Write an ASP.NET program using a DropDownList control that automatically changes the background color of a page once any one of the items: Red, Green and Blue, is selected.

Here is your ASPX HTML code --

<body id="PageBody" runat="server">
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:DropDownList id="ColorList"

<asp:ListItem Selected="True" Value="White">White</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="Red">Red</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="Green">Green</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="Blue">Blue</asp:ListItem>



And here is the code behind --
public void Color_Selection_Change(Object sender, EventArgs e)
            PageBody.Attributes["bgColor"] =  System.Drawing.Color.FromName(ColorList.SelectedItem.Value).Name;
