In this step, we will create an HTML file and add the below code.

        How to change text color depending  
      on background color using JavaScript
    <script src=""> 
<body id="body" align="center" > 
    <h1 style="color:#03aa96;">   
    <p id="col_UP" style="font-size: 15px; font-weight: bold;"> </p> 
    <button onclick="col_Fun()">
        click here 
    <div id="backG">Welcome to websolutionstuff.</div> 



Add CSS For Designing

Now, add CSS to add a head tag.

#backG { 
    width: 200px; 
    height: 30px; 
    color: white; 
    background: #03aa96; 
    margin: 0 auto;



Add Javascript Code

In this step, we will create a jquery function and change the text color based on the background color selection.

var el_up = document.getElementById('col_UP'); 
var rgbValue = [255, 0, 0]; 

function setColor() { 
    rgbValue[0] = Math.round(Math.random() * 255); 
    rgbValue[1] = Math.round(Math.random() * 255); 
    rgbValue[2] = Math.round(Math.random() * 255); 
    var color = Math.round(((parseInt(rgbValue[0]) * 299) + 
        (parseInt(rgbValue[1]) * 587) + 
        (parseInt(rgbValue[2]) * 114)) / 1000); 
    var textColor = (color > 125) ? 'black' : 'white'; 
    var backColor =  
        'rgb(' + rgbValue[0] + ', ' + rgbValue[1] + ', ' 
     + rgbValue[2] + ')'; 
    $('#backG').css('color', textColor); 
    $('#backG').css('background-color', backColor); 

function col_Fun() {
