Blinking Images With Javascript

I needed to have an image blink in one of our intranet applications today, so I wrote this quick javascript to accomodate. There aren’t many good image blinker scripts online, so I’m adding mine to the mix:

Start by adding this to your javascript file:

function blinkId(id) {
	var i = document.getElementById(id);
	if('hidden') {'visible';
	} else {'hidden';
	return true;

And this right before you end your <html> tag:

<script type="text/javascript">blinkId('YOUR_ELEMENT_ID');</script>

This will work for images, divs, spans, pretty much any block level element with an id.
