Hey All,

There's this awesome dynamic animiation script that was released in FrontPage98 (Not that I use such a hideous tool), and I was wondering if it was at all possible to make it cross-browser.

From my understanding it only works in IE.


Here's the Code Below:
The Script:

<script LANGUAGE="JavaScript" FPTYPE="mydynamicanimation">

dynamicanimAttr = "mydynamicanimation"
animateElements = new Array()
currentElement = 0
speed = 0
stepsZoom = 8
stepsWord = 8
stepsFly = 12
stepsSpiral = 25
steps = stepsZoom
step = 0
outString = ""
function mydynAnimation()
{
var ms = navigator.appVersion.indexOf("MSIE")
ie4 = (ms>0) && (parseInt(navigator.appVersion.substring(ms+5, ms+6)) >= 4)
if(!ie4)
{
if((navigator.appName == "Netscape") &&
(parseInt(navigator.appVersion.substring(0, 1)) >= 4))
{
for (index=document.layers.length-1; index >= 0; index--)
{
layer=document.layers[index]
if (layer.left==10000)
layer.left=0
}
}
return
}
for (index=document.all.length-1; index >= document.body.sourceIndex; index--)
{
el = document.all[index]
animation = el.getAttribute(dynamicanimAttr, false)
if(null != animation)
{
if(animation == "dropWord" || animation == "flyTopRightWord" || animation == "flyBottomRightWord")
{
ih = el.innerHTML
outString = ""
i1 = 0
iend = ih.length
while(true)
{
i2 = startWord(ih, i1)
if(i2 == -1)
i2 = iend
outWord(ih, i1, i2, false, "")
if(i2 == iend)
break
i1 = i2
i2 = endWord(ih, i1)
if(i2 == -1)
i2 = iend
outWord(ih, i1, i2, true, animation)
if(i2 == iend)
break
i1 = i2
}
document.all[index].innerHTML = outString
document.all[index].style.posLeft = 0
document.all[index].setAttribute(dynamicanimAttr, null)
}
if(animation == "zoomIn" || animation == "zoomOut")
{
ih = el.innerHTML
outString = "<SPAN " + dynamicanimAttr + "=\"" + animation + "\" style=\"position: relative; left: 10000;\">"
outString += ih
outString += "</SPAN>"
document.all[index].innerHTML = outString
document.all[index].style.posLeft = 0
document.all[index].setAttribute(dynamicanimAttr, null)
}
}
}
i = 0
for (index=document.body.sourceIndex; index < document.all.length; index++)
{
el = document.all[index]
animation = el.getAttribute(dynamicanimAttr, false)
if (null != animation)
{
if(animation == "flyLeft")
{
el.style.posLeft = 10000-offsetLeft(el)-el.offsetWidth
el.style.posTop = 0
}
else if(animation == "flyRight")
{
el.style.posLeft = 10000-offsetLeft(el)+document.body.offsetWidth
el.style.posTop = 0

{
el.style.posLeft = 0

step = 0

}
if(currentElement < animateElements.length)
window.setTimeout("animate();", speed)

//-->
</script>

The Body Onload:

onload="mydynAnimation()"

The Code to implement it:


mydynamicanimation="flyTopRight" style="position: relative !important; left: 10000 !important"

Wow, that's a long script to rewrite. I would suggest trying some of the established scripts like Moo/moo tools, Dojo, Prototype, etc. They should have what you need.

As for the script, you *could* rewrite it, but it would be a lot of work.

Agreed, go MooFX or D&#244;j&#244;.
