Text Effects - Page 4

Some of these scripts scroll information on the screen - either on the status bar (that bar on the bottom on your browser) or in a text box. Some of these scripts print out messages. Some will display news, special highlights, and others will even tell you a random quote. They range in difficulty from less than 10 lines to more than 500 lines.

  • Add Commas
    Martin Webb Sep 9, 2000

    Modifies a number by adding commas after every third digit. For example, 123456789 is converted to 123,456,789. The script example shows this script as used on numbers of various sizes. And, it demonstrates a clever use of the modulus operator.

  • Alert
    Sep 9, 2000

    If you're just looking for a quick way to tell your visitor something, use this JavaScript alert! When they put their cursor on the link, they get the message in the form of a JavaScript alert!

  • Animated Message
    Sean McCarthy Sep 9, 2000

    Draw attention to the status bar message at the bottom of the screen by adding some animation to it! Arrows will focus on the message by continually pointing at the text. Clever!

  • Editor
    Sep 9, 2000

    This is a very cool way to show you a little bit better how Javascript works. Go ahead. You can manipulate several different variables and then see the effects on the scroll box. Have fun!

  • Expanding Text
    Charles Foster Sep 9, 2000

    Draw attention to information on your site with JavaScript-powered expanding text! Just enter the text you want to use, the max size you want it to reach, and speed it should "grow" and it's ready to go. Neat!

  • Flasher
    Sep 9, 2000

    This script simply flashes (hence the name) a message on and off on your statusbar. This script probably got your attention better than the Classic Scroll but, is not used as much. The Flasher is just not as well known as the Classic Scroll.

  • Keyboard Slider
    Massimo Giari Sep 9, 2000

    Now you can move images and objects across the screen by simply using keys from the keyboard. Amazing!

  • Layer Scroller
    Eddie Traversa Sep 9, 2000

    Provides controls to scroll the layer at varying speeds. Can be used with your own graphics and layout to creatively present your content.

  • Line Scroller
    Ernst Straka Sep 9, 2000

    An impressive single line news ticker with smooth scrolling motion. Supports any valid HTML within the scroll text, including images or links. Really easy to position on your page, just place the 'tickpos' anchor where you want the scroller to appear. Easy!

  • Marquee
    Sep 9, 2000

    (Internet Explorer preferred) This JavaScript scrolls information back and forth across a page - the message appears to float back and forth! If you don't have Internet Explorer, it'll just show the message on the screen. Works great!

  • News Scroller
    Sep 9, 2000

    Scrolling words along the bottom of the page is cool and all, but this one takes the cake.... You can scroll text, links, images, buttons, basically anything you want, in a little news like box on your site. And, you can have as many 'messages' as you want. Amazing!
