    Moving "Click Here" button

    Does anybody know where I can find the script for the "Click Here" button, and when you put your mouse over it it moves round the screen and you can never "Click Here".
    Desperate for this for a web page where I'm trying to wind some students up with a promise of answers to exam questions - guess what, they won't be able to "Click here".
    Thanks for any help.

    Hey, would you mind if I showed you a little something that has to do with English/grammar? Periods and commas always go inside of the quotes, while exclamation points and question marks always go outside of the quotes. Just thought you should know that. Only, it doesn't apply to programming,

    Yah, I know, I'm sorry, I appologize. I have some spelling problems too (did I just spell "apologize" wrong?). I was just pointing something out to you, since most people never knew that they do go inside of the quotes. Actually no matter what the situation, the periods and commas go inside the quotes. I promise no longer to "pick" on people's grammar/spelling/English/etc. Please forgive me.

    Yea I cant seem to catch the darned thing anymore. Its just too fast. Like the sides will turn orange (on my vers of ie when you put your mouse over a button its sides turn orange) So I know I have my mose over it, but I never get the alert message... I end up hearding it into a courner then I cant click it because it jumps away.

    probably something to consider

    Hey, I just tested dave's little dhtml version and it doesn't even move in my browser. Im running safari on mac osx 10.2 if you want to know to make it more browser compatible. It's probably not that relevant though especially if you are going to use flash, but there it is anyway.

    Moving box !

    Thank you all for your entries and efforts, especially you Dave.
    Thats a good bit of code.
    Is there any way of making it so that it appears in a set poistion on hte page when the page is first opened ? ie, so that I can put it in a relevant piece of text to start with and then the box moves away ??
    Thnaks again...

    Very fun button. I couldn't catch it with my mouse, but you can tab to it and hit enter. (Yes, I am a pre-mouse era user.) Is there a way to keep the button out of the "tab order"?

    Thumbs up

    I did manage to catch it, but not with the mouse, and not by tabbing.
    Using the right click “method” mentioned above, you can click the button, but it doesn’t register. It does jump away before you can possibly double-click, but that one click is enough to give it focus, after which you can simply press the space bar.
