View Full Version : Slideshow with text description?

07-21-2006, 09:39 PM
1) Script Title: Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v1.5)

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/fadeinslideshow.htm

3) Describe problem: I am using this script and the result looks super :) . Thanks so much! However Id like to make a tiny addition Id like to be able to display some additional information about each photo when you hover over the slideshow and pause it. Is it possible to display the alt information when you hover over a picture?

Thanks so much,

See http://www.twey.co.uk/files/slide.html. alt is not meant for mouseovers; it is to be displayed in the case that the image is unavailable. Only Internet Explorer displays it on mouseover. Instead, the "title" attribute should be used for this effect. My code above is capable of both.

Thanks so much. I'll give that a try.

See http://www.twey.co.uk/files/slide.html.

Great changes you made to this great script. Thank for share it.
I have a question to you: in the dropdown <select id="selectimage"> where you fill with slidedescs? and where do the selected action? because I want to fill with the number of pic.

Again Thanks

Hi Twey:
For explain my before post I do:

inside the <script> I put
//Create the array of n&#186;
function createnumbers(){
for (i=0; i< slidedescs.length; i++)
document.write('<a href="javascript:gotoshow(\''+slidedescs[i]+'\')">' +i+ '</a> ')
and in the body
<script type="text/javascript">
createnumbers() //This call writes out the numbers

It display the array for the number of photos and do a link to it, but the gotoshow do not work.

How do you the select?

There's no gotoshow() function. I think you're confusing this with another script. Set whichimage then slideit(false).

but what is whichimage, the slideimages[], the slidedescs[] or what?

It's a variable containing the number of the current slide.
