show page when it's loaded


Recommended Posts

Hi all, i was wondering if there is a good/ better way to show the website, when it is fully loaded.

I read this article: http://javascript.about.com/library/blanim02.htm


and they come with 2 methods: wrap some object in a div with an id and set it to display:none in css.

after that they differ:

method 1does:

<body onload="setObjVis('myobj','visible');">

second one does

function start() {
window.onload = start;

since the article is fairly old i was wondering if these methods are still good or if there is a better method of doing this. What i thought was wrap everything in a wrapper div and apply the above.

Love to hear from some expert

So you want to do a splash or preloader screen? ugh, those are so annoying.  You should stay away from doing that unless your site really is loading something that takes a good amount of time to load. 


But if you insist, it would be easier to give it its own page and then redirect to real page when it's done.

no not those annoying things, pretty much like google does, all white and than fades in pretty fast. It's just that i really don't like pages as if it is being build up, certainly in a browser like opera it looks like it consists of bricks. So it's no reall splash page, but just a small effect to show all at the same time. (preferable with a little fade in like 0.4 ms)


I just stumbled upon jquery,  can you recommend that?
