Snow Web Part - Tis the Season

I am still refining my enhanced Search Web Part and my Subwebs on the Quick Launch Web Part (sorry for the delay, I hope to finish these over Christmas break). You're going to love them.

However, I thought it would be fun to release a simple, holiday CEWP. We are using this Web Part on our own portal and our staff has gotten a kick out of it. So, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow (see figure 1).

Just save the snow.dwp locally, import it onto a Web Part page, and ideally change the location of the snowflake image. Of course, you can use any snowflake image that you like. Simply edit the JavaScript source directly.

Merry Christmas everyone!

After 3 hours, each snow flake has a grey box around it. I wish I can send u a pic, do u know why?

This is very cool! Can you share the snowflake you were using the in you screenshot? When I add the webpart all the snowflakes have a white box around them. I've even tried a transparent gif and it still didn't work. How did you get it to be transparent?

Ahhh, the power of JavaScript. The fun of Christmas. The bloat of SharePoint.

I have mine up at:

That is sooo cool, I have it on "my site" right now. (I localised the image to be nice).

I don't run it for long as it does eat up 50% of my processor ;-)

There is a setting to stop the snow after a configurable number of seconds.

HTH,
