seekAttention, a jQuery plugin

By: OSH Editorial    In: jQuery

Karma - Responsive bootstrapped webapp

The “seekAttention” plugin gracefully get’s your users attention by fading out a definable area but leaving the target element (the element which is seeking attention) un-faded and thereby focusing the users attention on it.

Hello you, if you are new here, you might want to subscribe to our RSS feed for updates on this article and our site.


The definable area (to be called “container” from this point forward) can be the entire page or any element which surrounds the target element and the colour which overlays the container can also be defined by you.

It’s hard to describe so see the demos now by scrolling down.

Not only will it focus the element but it will automatically scroll the page if the element is out of the users view. To see the scrolling in action visit the bottom of the page and click the “apply to box at top of page”.

Installation instructions and downloads are at the bottom of the page.
