View Full Version : Image loading on IE

09-02-2006, 12:35 AM
1) Script Title: DHTML Slide Show Script

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

3) Describe problem: In Safari and Firefox images are preloaded in the sequence indicated in the image number eg. photos[1]="pic1" etc.
However, Internet explorer appears to load them randomly. Thus if you have a lot of images (like me) the first ones are not neccesarily ready when you begin to manually click through them with the 'forward' link and you miss some without knowing it.

Is there anyway to instruct IE to load them in chronological order?

My page.....http://www.photojournal.co.uk/HomePage.html and click the 'images' link to see what i mean...

Thanks in advance anyone who can help

The script says it's IE5+ compatible... There shouldn't be a problem....

I just tried and didn't experience that in IE but, that may have to do with my having a very fast connection. However, as far as I know, the order in which the images are made available to the browser has more to do with the server than with the browser. So, it may be just dumb luck as to what order they are served in. One thing that I've noticed at other times though is that - say you use a server side script to load the images, then what matters is the order in which they were loaded into the directory on the server. So, that's the one thing that you could try. Delete the images from the server, then upload them again, one at a time, in the order that you want them to be served.
