    Help with snowstorm js- make a start/stop button

    Hello everybody!

    I'm a complete newb at javascript and i've searched the internet to come up with a solution but nothing worked.
    I'm using the snowstorm javascript from http://www.schillmania.com/projects/snowstorm/. He creates a environment where it's snowing on your webpage. I like this, but it might be annoying to my website users.

    What i want to do is to have a button on my website to start and stop the snow. So far i found a button to stop it:
    <a href="#" onclick="snowStorm.stop();return false">Stop Snowing</a>
    Besides this i'm in search for a 'start' snowing button. I have no idea wether this is close to the code above.

    So what i need too is a way to be able to have the page load without snowing right away. I thought i had found a solution in
    this.autoStart = false;
    but this didn't happen.

    How can i make a 'start snowing button'? How can i have it standard non-snowing?

    Thank you very much for reading.
    Kind regards,
    Jonas Pijnenburg

    I think in this thread:
    http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/sh...ble-Disable-JS

    we decided that
    Code:
    <input type="button" value="toggle snow" onclick="snowStorm.toggleSnow();">
    would toggle it on and off

    this.autoStart = false should stop the snow from automatically starting at page load. snowStorm.toggleSnow() will toggle the snow, as stated in the reference.
    Code:
    <a href="javascript:;" onclick="snowStorm.toggleSnow(); return false;">Toggle Snow</a>
    There doesn't seem to be an explicit "start" function so the toggle function is probably the way to go.

    (Edit: and it seems my page refreshing skills aren't that great :d )
