View Full Version : Thumbnail Viewer II + Ultimate Fade-In Slideshow

11-28-2007, 04:58 AM
1) Script Title: a)Thumbnail Viewer II and b)Ultimate Fade-In Slideshow
2) Script URL (on DD):
a) http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/thumbnail2.htm
b) http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/fadeinslideshow.htm

3) Describe problem:
I am using both scripts on the same page. An old version of Thumbnail Viewer II was used until now and both scripts worked ok.
Upgrading to thumbnail viewer v1.51 the thumbail viewer does not work anymore on mouseover in IE 6+7, fadeshow still ok. It does work on FF and the new thumbnail viewer does work on a page by itself in IE versions.

appreciate some help on this.

I've seen this happen before with the thumbnailviewer script on pages with a lot of other scripts on them.

I made a local copy and removed the defer attribute. Then both scripts functioned. Remove the red part:

<script type="text/javascript" src="thumbnailviewer2.js" defer="defer">

* Image Thumbnail Viewer II script- Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (www.dynamicdrive.com)
* Visit http://www.dynamicDrive.com for hundreds of DHTML scripts
* This notice must stay intact for legal use


This defer business is a good way to do a quick onload event in IE without using up an event handler, but when there are a lot of other things going on with the page, I've seen it cause problems.

Thanks John,
removing the defer option fixed it.

all the best,
