    Wink Magic Coloring Pages

    Hi - I'm new to Dynamic Drive but I have already found some great scripts I will be implementing from this site. Thanks to all coders/posters.

    My Current Question is whether anyone knows where to find a script which does what this website does:

    I tried impementing it on my site: www.ninjanimalskidz.com (don't laugh it's an all html site - ha ha).

    What I found was that the code was fragile and kept breaking in various ways - such as loop of a warning message. A young child would not know how to get out of it. There is no way to contact the website owner/developer to ask them about this.

    • I would love a script like this where the beginning image is grayed out, and then comes to "life" with the wipe of a cursor.
    • I would also like to display different "erasers" as the one on the noted site is very girlie.

    Thanks, Rachel

    Would this work?

    It was on their website

    <!-- Magic coloring pages code -->
    <script type="text/javascript">
    //colors
    _mgp_bordercolor = "red";
    _mgp_bgcolor1 = "#FFE9F5";
    _mgp_bgcolor2 = "#FFADD9";
    _mgp_fntcolor1 = "#000000";
    _mgp_fntcolor2 = "#900073";

    //print button
    _mgp_btncss = "";

    //default zoom of the coloring image
    _mgp_zoom = 1;

    //handle dynamic reload of the coloring image
    _mgp_handleonload=false;
    </script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.magiccoloringpages.com/coloring-book.js.php"></script>

    Default I Tried That

    Thanks for the reply. I loaded all the code and did get something going. It worked at first.....then it started having sizing issues, speed issues, and the warning message issues.

    I was using IE. But the issue which my young user had was the loop of the warning message "Select the magic brush and drag it over the picture to start coloring".

    Perhaps my image was too large? But I was very fascinated with the whole thing, and thought it would be a fast and free solution to making my website more interactive.

    But I can't use something which breaks and gives weird effects randomly.

    It worked on my website. Maybe there is something wrong with your host?

    Default Thanks

    Thanks for looking into it.

    It could be that my images are too wide and too large. I notice someone uses this a lot on her site, but her images are very simple. My images would probably do better at the same size as this pony picture. I also tried to change all the variables such as line and font color in my first attempt.

    I may try this again for my site. Just keep it simpler.
