Add Floating Hover Text - Which Trails Mouse Cursor

If you want to show any text like "Welcome Here" or "Sign My Guestbook", which follows the mouse cursor (trail text effect), like the one displayed in the image, or in this demo.

Then, simply add the code in any HTML/JavaScript widget (Log in -> Layout  -> Add a Gadget).

If you want to show this effect only in the HomePage or any specific page, then you should read this post, on "How to display a widget only in a specific page in Blogger".


<script language="javascript">

// ENTER TEXT BELOW. CAN *NOT* INCLUDE NORMAL HTML CODE.
var text='YOUR TEXT HERE...';
var delay=40; // SPEED OF TRAIL
var Xoff=0; // PIXEL COUNT FROM THE LEFT OF THE CURSOR (- VALUES GO TO LEFT)
var Yoff=-30; // PIXEL COUNT FROM THE TOP OF THE CURSOR (- VALUES GO UP)
var txtw=14; // AMOUNT OF PIXEL SPACE EACH CHARACTER OCCUPIES
var beghtml='<font color="#00436e"><b>'; // OPTIONAL HTML CODE THAT EFFECTS WHOLE TEXT STRING SUCH AS FONT COLOR, SIZE, ETC.
var endhtml='</b></font>'; // END HTML CODE. MOSTLY USED IF ABOVE SETTING IS USED.
//********** NO NEED TO EDIT BELOW HERE **********\\
ns4 = (navigator.appName.indexOf("Netscape")>=0 && document.layers)? true : false;
ie4 = (document.all && !document.getElementById)? true : false;
ie5 = (document.all && document.getElementById)? true : false;
ns6 = (document.getElementById && navigator.appName.indexOf("Netscape")>=0 )? true: false;
var txtA=new Array();
text=text.split('');
var x1=0;
var y1=-1000;
var t='';
for(i=1;i<=text.length;i++){
t+=(ns4)? '<layer name="txt'+i+'" top="-100" left="0" width="'+txtw+'" height="1">' : '<div id="txt'+i+'" style="position:absolute; top:-100px; left:0px; height:1px; width:'+txtw+'; visibility:visible;">';
t+=beghtml+text[i-1]+endhtml;
t+=(ns4)? '</layer>' : '</div>';
}
document.write(t);
function moveid(id,x,y){
if(ns4)id.moveTo(x,y);
else{
id.style.left=x+'px';
id.style.top=y+'px';
}}
function animate(evt){
x1=Xoff+((ie4||ie5)?event.clientX+document.body.scrollLeft:evt.pageX);
y1=Yoff+((ie4||ie5)?event.clientY+document.body.scrollTop:evt.pageY);
}
function getidleft(id){
if(ns4)return id.left;
else return parseInt(id.style.left);
}
function getidtop(id){
if(ns4)return id.top;
else return parseInt(id.style.top);
}
function getwindowwidth(){
if(ie4||ie5)return document.body.clientWidth+document.body.scrollLeft;
else return window.innerWidth+pageXOffset;
}
function movetxts(){
for(i=text.length;i>1;i=i-1){
if(getidleft(txtA[i-1])+txtw*2>=getwindowwidth()){
moveid(txtA[i-1],0,-1000);
moveid(txtA[i],0,-1000);
}else moveid(txtA[i], getidleft(txtA[i-1])+txtw, getidtop(txtA[i-1]));
}
moveid(txtA[1],x1,y1);
}
window.onload=function(){
for(i=1;i<=text.length;i++)txtA[i]=(ns4)?document.layers['txt'+i]:(ie4)?document.all['txt'+i]:document.getElementById('txt'+i);
if(ns4)document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEMOVE);
document.onmousemove=animate;
setInterval('movetxts()',delay);
}
</script>
