Hi Programmers!
I am not JavaScript programmer but I have to make a little script:
I need an small image that constantly follows a cursor.
Something like you move a cursor and with a small delay an image will follow it or something like that.

If possible then please help!!!

Okey, all the best!

Change the image they provide (an arrow) to your image you should be good to go.

Here my version:


<html>
<head>
<script>
var imgCur = null;
function moveImg(e){
  if(!e){
    e=event;
  } else {
    e.x = e.pageX;
    e.y = e.pageY;
  }
  setTimeout("imgCur.style.left='"+e.x+"px';imgCur.style.top='"+e.y+"px'", 100);
  status="imgCur.style.left='"+e.x+"px';imgCur.style.top='"+e.y+"px'";
}
function intitCur(){
  imgCur=document.images.curImg;
  if(!document.all)
    document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEMOVE);
  document.onmousemove=moveImg;
}
</script>
</head>
<body onLoad="intitCur()">
<img name="curImg" style="position:absolute;" src="http://experts-exchange.com/images/vipAccess.gif">
</body>
</html>

Sorry, remove the window.status line. It was only for debugging.
