1) Script Title:

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/tabcontent.htm

3) Describe problem: Does anyone know how to Disable the slideshow mode??
I cant see anywhere in the script that gives me an indication as to how to disable it.

If you look at the instructions you will find Turning on slideshow mode which shows you how to turn it on. By not defining an integer when calling instance.init() slideshow mode should be turned off. Using the example given there:

<script type="text/javascript">

var myflowers=new ddtabcontent("flowertabs") //enter ID of Tab Container
myflowers.setpersist(true) //toogle persistence of the tabs' state
myflowers.setselectedClassTarget("link") //"link" or "linkparent"
myflowers.init()

</script>

Just don't put anything between the brackets:

Slideshow on:

whatever.init(2000)

Slideshow off:

whatever.init()

This is the actual file for the tabs I dont see the instance.init() anywhere on this file. Ok so Im not real smart Sue me LOL

I don't really understand why you posted that piece of code but there is nothing there you should edit. All you need to do is look at the .html page and find the code that looks something like this:

<script type="text/javascript">

var myflowers=new ddtabcontent("flowertabs") //enter ID of Tab Container
myflowers.setpersist(true) //toogle persistence of the tabs' state
myflowers.setselectedClassTarget("link") //"link" or "linkparent"
myflowers.init(3000)

</script>
and remove the number in the brackets:

<script type="text/javascript">

var myflowers=new ddtabcontent("flowertabs") //enter ID of Tab Container
myflowers.setpersist(true) //toogle persistence of the tabs' state
myflowers.setselectedClassTarget("link") //"link" or "linkparent"
myflowers.init()

</script>
This will turn the slideshow off.

If you look at step 2 on the instructions page (Step 2: Finally, simply add the below HTML to where you wish the Tab Content to appear on the page:)
You will find three different ones:
countries.init()
myflowers.init()
mypets.init(2000)
The first two have the slideshow turned off, the last one has it turned on. This code should be on your html page. Do not change anything in the .js file. If you still can't find it, post a link to your site or attach the .html code.

Thanks for your taking the time with me . Problem solved :) I was so focused on the script I forgot about the html in index.
