Typing Status Bar Text

(Internet Explorer 6)

Looking for a way to enhance your web site? This JavaScript code will enable you to display text within your status bar that is typed line by line. This JavaScript provides a great way to tell your visitors about a special offer or whatever you'd like.

However, use this script cautiously, as you certainly don't want to irritate your visitors.

Place the following code between your <BODY> tags and place your lines of text where indicated in red. You may edit the typing speed by changing the text indicated in bold.

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">
<!-- Script courtesy of - Your Guide to Professional Web Site Design and Development
var current = 0
var x = 0
var speed = 100
var speed2 = 100
function initArray(n) {
this.length = n;
for (var i =1; i <= n; i++) {
this[i] = ' '
typ = new initArray(4)
typ[0]="Your First Line of Text Here"
typ[1]="Your Second Line of Text Here"
typ[2]="Your Third Line of Text Here"
typ[3]="Your Fourth Line of Text Here"
function typewrite() {
var m = typ[current]
window.status = m.substring(0, x++) + ""
if (x == m.length + 1) {
x = 0
if (current > typ.length - 1) {
current = 0
setTimeout("typewrite()", speed2)
else {
setTimeout("typewrite()", speed)
