Weebly Tricks #7 - Adding Neon Lights Text Effect

Posted by Domingo Tambasacan at 1/12/2014

Add neon text effects to Weebly



After playing with images, I must also introduce some tricks about Titles or any elements consisting letters. Static titles are sometimes boring and you may want to use a livelier introduction to a certain topic. They called it Neon Lights Text because they do shine and change colors like those big text you see at night in the city.








We will be using two types of Neon Light effect here, please check the demo.

1. Neon Lights Effect I

You don’t have to edit something in your CSS, you only need to insert a code via embed code tool. Drag one into your page and insert this:

<h2>
<script language="JavaScript1.2">

/*
Neon Lights Text
By JavaScript Kit (http://javascriptkit.com)
For this script, TOS, and 100s more DHTML scripts,
Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com
*/

var message="Welcome to Dynamic Drive!"
var neonbasecolor="gray"
var neontextcolor="yellow"
var flashspeed=100  //in milliseconds

///No need to edit below this line/////

var n=0
if (document.all||document.getElementById){
document.write('<font color="'+neonbasecolor+'">')
for (m=0;m<message.length;m++)
document.write('<span id="neonlight'+m+'">'+message.charAt(m)+'</span>')
document.write('</font>')
}
else
document.write(message)

function crossref(number){
var crossobj=document.all? eval("document.all.neonlight"+number) : document.getElementById("neonlight"+number)
return crossobj
}

function neon(){

//Change all letters to base color
if (n==0){
for (m=0;m<message.length;m++)
//eval("document.all.neonlight"+m).style.color=neonbasecolor
crossref(m).style.color=neonbasecolor
}

//cycle through and change individual letters to neon color
crossref(n).style.color=neontextcolor

if (n<message.length-1)
n++
else{
n=0
clearInterval(flashing)
setTimeout("beginneon()",1500)
return
}
}

function beginneon(){
if (document.all||document.getElementById)
flashing=setInterval("neon()",flashspeed)
}
beginneon()


</script>
</h2>

2. Neon Lights Effect II (This one is better)
<h2><script language="JavaScript1.2">

//Neon Lights Text II by G.P.F. (gpf@beta-cc.de)
//visit http://www.beta-cc.de
//Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com for this script

var message="Thank you for visiting Dynamic Drive!"
var neonbasecolor="gray"
var neontextcolor="yellow"
var neontextcolor2="#FFFFA8"
var flashspeed=100      // speed of flashing in milliseconds
var flashingletters=3      // number of letters flashing in neontextcolor
var flashingletters2=1      // number of letters flashing in neontextcolor2 (0 to disable)
var flashpause=0      // the pause between flash-cycles in milliseconds

///No need to edit below this line/////

var n=0
if (document.all||document.getElementById){
document.write('<font color="'+neonbasecolor+'">')
for (m=0;m<message.length;m++)
document.write('<span id="neonlight'+m+'">'+message.charAt(m)+'</span>')
document.write('</font>')
}
else
document.write(message)

function crossref(number){
var crossobj=document.all? eval("document.all.neonlight"+number) : document.getElementById("neonlight"+number)
return crossobj
}

function neon(){

//Change all letters to base color
if (n==0){
for (m=0;m<message.length;m++)
crossref(m).style.color=neonbasecolor
}

//cycle through and change individual letters to neon color
crossref(n).style.color=neontextcolor

if (n>flashingletters-1) crossref(n-flashingletters).style.color=neontextcolor2
if (n>(flashingletters+flashingletters2)-1) crossref(n-flashingletters-flashingletters2).style.color=neonbasecolor


if (n<message.length-1)
n++
else{
n=0
clearInterval(flashing)
setTimeout("beginneon()",flashpause)
return
}
}

function beginneon(){
if (document.all||document.getElementById)
flashing=setInterval("neon()",flashspeed)
}
beginneon()


</script></h2>

Both have the same property but differs on how the color alternates. Just make changes with the following:

Bold text - for your message.
Blue marked text - for variable like text color, next color, flash speed and so on...

Big big note here: YOU CANNOT ADD MORE THAN ONE NEON LIGHT IN SAME PAGE regardless of its type.
