Animated "Loading." ? Br3nn4n
I simply want to display "Loading" with 3 periods after it. But, I'd like the periods to come in sequentially. Such as:
So loading is always there but there's 1 period, then 2, then 3. And repeat. How do I do this?
Try an animated GIF Br3nn4n
Okay, I was trying to not go that route since I've seen what I'm aiming for other places but you do have a point.
Do all browsers support textContent? And why use textContent instead of innerHTML? What are the advantages? Little_G
No, I didn't check before, but IE doesn't support
textContent. IE's equivalent of textContent is innerText rather than innerHTML. I didn't use innerHTML because the text I was setting did not need to be interpreted as HTML (this might only save a couple of nanoseconds, but every little helps!). I used textContent because that's the standard [ w3.org]. So the code I posted above will only work in standards compliant browsers. Andrew Br3nn4n
Oh, by the way, thank you G :) Works in Firefox, any people using IE can just see "Loading." without the extra cool animated dots till I fix it :D
