Site user entered text preview

OK...hopefully I can explain this throughly.

I have a greeting card site where people can select a greeting from a drop down list and then add a custom signture. On some other sites I have seen where they have a preview section where a customer can preview what their test will actually look like in both the font and color that they choose.

So after they enter their selections they hit a "preview" button and in a card sized box it previews their text.

Does anyone know where I would start with something like that?

Thanks!

Hey Grant,

It sounds like they are using an AJAX script of sorts to take the entered information and then generate the pop-up preview using a temporary variable.

Do you have any links of some of the other sites where you have seen what you are trying to accomplish. If I get a look at it, I could probably determine what they are doing.

Regards,

Brian

grant,

It is definitely using an ajax/java script to display the sample from the text box while applying the formatting from the menu. I will check with my development team if they have any scripts or have seen this somewhere.
