View Full Version : Question about swissarmy.js script

01-03-2009, 01:04 PM
I have installed this nice script and I wanted to do some changes but I did not managed to do it. The canvas ( or cell) where the images are loaded is white. I want it to be in another color. I have changed some background colors in the script with no result. Someone can tell me at which line of the script I have to do the change?

Here the script:


To be found at:


Thank you very much


My test homepage shows what I mean (http://paolinet.info/test.html). One possibility is to change the background color of each image, but as I have many of them I prefer to change the background color of the canvas.

Add the highlighted:

var slides=[]; //FIRST SLIDESHOW
//configure the below images and descriptions to your own.
slides[0] = ["1.jpg", "test"];
slides[1] = ["2.jpg", "test"];

Hallo John

I have checked on FF, Opera, Safari and Camino.
Still not working. Do I need to make some changes on the swissarmy.js script?


By the way, your script is nice.

Best regards from Switzerland

Crop your 2.jpg image. It has a huge white space in it to the right and bottom.

Additionally, since you are not using image buttons, set this to false:

var preload_ctrl_images=true;

And if you set the dimensions of the show to the widest width and the tallest height, smaller images will be centered, ex:

<script type="text/javascript">
//Notes on Parameters: The only required parameter is the slides_array_name. If Width is used, so must Height.
//Interval is optional too. It is always last, either fourth after Width and Height or second after Slides_array_name.
//Usage: new inter_slide(Slides_array_name, Width, Height, Interval)
new inter_slide(slides, 640, 480)

Thank you John.

As I have many pictures of different size I thought it would be easier to give the same canvas background color as the page instead of changing every single picture ( I can set a background color to every single image but this take some time).

If I understand, your script allows only white as background color of the canvas were the pictures are loaded . Is this correct?

No, the white background on 2.jpg is a part of the image itself.
