logout gray effect!

while surfing one of my favorites Arab VB's forums I've notice this feature, that will gray screen when clicking the logout button .. a similar effect found in windows XP when clicking  Log off.

in script.js add the following code at the end of the file:
// Logout effect like in WindowsXP gray logoff effect!
function log_out()
{
ht = document.getElementsByTagName("html");
ht[0].style.filter = "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(grayscale=1)";
if (confirm('Are you sure you want to logout?'))
{
return true;
}
else
{
ht[0].style.filter = "";
return false;
}
}

in (index.template.php) look for
<a href="', $scripturl, '?action=logout;sesc=', $context['session_id'], '">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/logout.gif" alt="' . $txt[108] . '" style="margin: 2px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt[108]), '</a>';
and replace it with:
<a onclick="return log_out()" href="', $scripturl, '?action=logout;sesc=', $context['session_id'], '">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/logout.gif" alt="' . $txt[108] . '" style="margin: 2px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt[108]), '</a>';
we just add this : onclick="return log_out()"

note that this will work only with IE.
Really sorry .. real life is demanding my full attention .. will be back soon hopefully :)

Since you could have said 'could' but chose to say 'should', I should say you could be wrong there!

Interesting feature, but usually logging out happens pretty quickly (unless you're on a 56k modem ;)), so I don't know if that would be useful or not.

Even if you got very fast connection .. you will *notice* this one, trust me  ;)

Not in Firefox.  Unless it can work in Opera/Mozilla as well, I'm not interested :P.

I think it could be done using CSS & JavaScript...
The JS would have a loop that changes all the colors on the page little by little until everything is black.

If it doesnt work in firefox its not worth the trouble, plus i have Netscape, Opera, Mozilla Suite, Crazy Browser, Avant  just so i can make sure things work right for all. Im still trying to get Lynx to work, but god its hard! No installer file.

Nice trick ;)  Works like a charm !

Since 'filters' are pretty much IE specific (maybe Mozilla) I doubt they would work in anything but IE.  Now maybe some Javascript with a DIV (tiled graphic). Have JS bring the DIV to the front then either change the colors of the graphic or whatever...

Agree.  However perhaps we can do fade out instead by adding a semi-transparent png on these browsers? (However the png may have to be pre-loaded to guarentee it displays fast... when the mouse moves into logout command, at least, if you do not show a dialog like the original trick does)

If consistancy is in mind, Ie can also do fade out with filter.
