Who's using SparkleText in their pages? (Thanks to Alta Vista)

SparkleText was one of my first Java applets written using the Linux Java Development Kit. Pretty simple stuff, really, but I think it gives a nice effect.

New in Version 1.1

SparkleText Params:
  • text - The text to be displayed.
  • url - An optional URL to jump to if applet is selected.
  • fontname - Name of font to use (ie. Courier, Helvetica, etc.) TimesRoman is default.
  • fontstyle - Style of font. Either PLAIN, BOLD (default), or ITALIC.
  • fontsize - Point size of font (default is 36).
  • textcolor - Color text is displayed in (default is red).
  • backgroundcolor - Background color of applet (default is gray).
  • sparklecolor - Color of sparkle (default is yellow).
  • maxpause - Maximum length of time (in milliseconds) to pause between sparkles (default is 4000).
  • minpause - Minimum length of time (in milliseconds) to pause between sparkles (default is 500).
  • sparklepause - Length of time (in milliseconds) to pause between the various frames in the sparkle (default is 150).

  • SparkleText is made freely available. All I ask is that you mail me if you use it in your page(s).
