View Full Version : Ultimate Fade-in Slideshow: delay before slideshow begins?

I know you can define the delay interval between pictures in the slideshow, but is there a way to delay the start of the slideshow when the page loads?

There are many ways do to this. For example, for the code of Step 2, change it to:

<script type="text/javascript">
function runslideshow(){
//new fadeshow(IMAGES_ARRAY_NAME, slideshow_width, slideshow_height, borderwidth, delay, pause (0=no, 1=yes), optionalRandomOrder)
new fadeshow(fadeimages, 140, 225, 0, 3000, 1, "R")
new fadeshow(fadeimages2, 140, 225, 0, 3000, 0)

setTimeout("runslideshow()", 3000) //start slideshows after 3 seconds

Basically all I'm doing is putting the code to run inside a function, then using setTimeout() to create the delay before execution.
