page loader splash requires override button
Without wishing to get into a debate about the rights and wrongs of splash pages, I have found a method which works just the way I require except for one thing - it sets a timeout for vanishing instead of allowing the user to hit a button to make it vanish.
The idea is to display a PAGE LOADING graphic and have the large page load in the background.
<body> <div id="slowScreenSplash" style="position:absolute;z-index:1;top:0px;left:0px;width:1001px; height:1001px; background-color:#000000"> <script> showImage(); </script> </div> ...page stuff to load goes here... <script> setTimeout("document.getElementById('slowScreenSplash').style.display = 'none'",10000); </script> </body>
But what I would really like is to have the option to allow, say, at least 10 secs to elapse before the loader vanishes OR a button to press that overrides this wait.
Does anyone know how this could be achieved?
