Cursor Trailer Text II

Author: Kurt Grigg | Homepage

Notes: Added by Dynamic Drive ability to dismiss trailer after x seconds, easily change trailer color

Description: This cursor trail effect renders multiple copies of a text that follow the mouse around in a delayed fashion. Definitely an interesting spectacle, and one that can be configured to automatically be dismissed after x seconds. One great use of this script is to brand your domain name using it, as in demo.

Demo: Move that mouse of yours...(note that effect will disappear after 20 seconds)

Directions Developer's View

Simply insert the below inside the <body> section of the page:

Select All

Configure the three variables inside as instructed by the comments.

Technical Note

This script accesses the BODY onload event (window.onload). If you have another script on your page that does the same, one of them will not run. Click here for information on getting both scripts to work simultaneously.
