Blinking Text in TextBox using Javascript
The site is currently in read-only mode for maintenance. Posting of new items will be available again shortly.

Description

After seeing this question[^] in Q/A section, I just created this thing in Javascript & now posting here.

Code

<html>
<head>
<title>Blinking Text in TextBox using Javascript</title>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
var timer;
function BlinkingText()
{
 if(document.getElementById("txtName").value == "")
 {
   document.getElementById("txtName").value = "Enter your name..";
 }
 else
 {
   document.getElementById("txtName").value = "";
 }
 timer = setTimeout("BlinkingText()", 500);
}
 
function StopBlinking()
{
  clearTimeout(timer);
}
 
function ContinueBlinking()
{
  if(document.getElementById("txtName").value == "Enter your name.." || document.getElementById("txtName").value == "")
  {
    BlinkingText();
  }
}
 
function DoFocus()
{
  if(document.getElementById("txtName").value == "Enter your name.." || document.getElementById("txtName").value == "")
  {
    document.getElementById("txtName").value = "";
    StopBlinking();
  }
}
</script>
</head>
 
<body onload="BlinkingText()">
Name : <input type="text" id="txtName" value="Enter your name.." onfocus="DoFocus();" onblur="ContinueBlinking();" />
</body>
</html>
