Web Scripting Question

By TheJediSlayer

  1. Hello,

    I'm trying to figure out how to make it so that text on a web page is blocked out in certain text that I want blocked out until the viewer moves their cursor over the blocked out text, which then the text would appear.

    Ex: http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Verizon

    As you can see, the text here has some blocked out words unless you move your cursor directly over it. Of course, I know I can always view the source file for this web page and figure it out that way, but that would take a long time without some help to figure this all out, I think.

    Thanks in advance,

    Tyler

    That would be Client-Side Javascripting.

    First the mouse actions are done with onMouseOver="xxx" and the default is onMouseOut="yyy"

    The xxx will be some form of writeln="text" (the html info to be shown) while
    the yyy will just write an empty "<p></p>"
