    I previously asked and recieved some terrific help creating the effect of having an off colored line at the top of the webpage frame in your web browser:

    It’s a nice effect. I’ve seen a similar, more useful effect which involves the line (of any color) at the top of the webpage frame (like I have previously) but which increases in length from left to right as the user scroll down the page, typically of a long form article or essay? I raise this question because I am sure there is a proper name for the functionality I’m describing which I would need to use as a keyword to search Google to locate a doc either by Chris Coyier or by someone else like on Stackoverflow.

    Please advise.

    Thanks for your attention.

    “Scroll progress indicator” or “scroll progress bar” would seem like good terms to search on.

    Here’s a cool CSS-only demo

    And here’s one I did last year with plain JavaScript

    Hi @beverleyh: I will play around with the CSS-only demo from the codepen you shared. Your plain JS demo is interesting too. I also noticed your other related blog postings involving the percent sign with the circle around it that changes color. I am not even at a beginner level when it comes to reading JavaScript. If I do jump in and begin playing with it, I’ll be sure to return here to troubleshoot my implementation. Thank you for your help, once again, Beverleyh.

    Happy to help @drone4four

    Made me think of the sled with the Xmas story too…

    Santa’s still lurking online

    I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a revamp that involves CSS animation and changing panel background-color… a verse per panel, with a jingling bell here and a sprouting Xmas tree there It’s just finding the time to do it that’s the problem :/
