Text around mouse

Written by @kerixa 21 August 2012

Adding a beautiful effect or style to your website can make it more beautiful. In the following code, a text follows the mouse and if the mouse stops at a point and stays, the text also stays at that point. In this case, the text starts from the right side of the mouse. Usually short texts are placed to the right side of the pointer. This beautiful effect alone can attract more audiences to your website and you can write your favorite text instead of the default text.

Code Snippet:

                                                
                                                <!-- this script is provided by www.javascriptfreecode.com coded by: Kerixa Inc. -->
<!-- START OF Mouse Cursor Text Trailer DHTML -->


<!-- SUMMARY BRIEF

	This DHTML script will make a text message follow
	your cursor around the screen. You can change the
	message to say whatever you want.

	You can change the font face, color and size in
	the .trailersytle tag below. You can change the message
	in the javascript below that. Just look for the 
	comment that says "Insert your personal message below."

-->


<!-- Put this portion of the script inside of your <HEAD> tag -->


<style>
.trailerstyle {
	position: absolute;
	visibility: visible;
	top: -50px;
	font-size: 12px;
	font-family: Arial,Helvetica,Verdana;
      	font-weight: bold;
	color: #000000;
}
</style>

<!-- Put this code inside of your <BODY> tag. -->


<script>
<!--

for (i=0;i<=message.length-1;i++) {
    document.write("<span id='span"+i+"' class='trailerstyle'>")
	document.write(message[i])
    document.write("</span>")
}

if (document.layers){
	document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEMOVE);
}
document.onmousemove = handlerMM;

//-->
</script>


<!-- Lastly, insert the following into the <BODY> tag, itself, just like the example that follows. -->

<body onLoad="mousetrailer()" style="width:100%;overflow-x:hidden;overflow-y:scroll">
