HTML Goodies: Script Tip: Week 20
Once again, the looks like this (although I've put things on different lines to keep this page format correct, remember that everything must be on one line):
var color = prompt
("What color would you like the page background to be","")
var txtcolor = prompt
("What color would you like the text to be?","")
("<BODY BGCOLOR=" +color+ " TEXT=" +txtcolor+ ">")
defaultStatus="Here's your " +color+ " background and "
+txtcolor+ " text"
The text that showed up in the status bar was placed there by this line:
defaultStatus="Here's your " +color+ " background and " +txtcolor+ " text"
That little number can be plopped basically anywhere and whatever follows it shows up in the status bar. Super cool, huh?
You can see that I'm using a few returns, the things inside of the plus signs, to get the prompt variables in the mix. It just looks good to personalize the text.
Use it in good health!
