I have been using the following script successfully. However I now need the slideshow to view only a certain number of times (1 or 2) instead of constantly running.

Can someone tell me how I could work that into THIS particular script.

Or, does someone have a link to a good script that has this feature?

Would prefer to keep this script however as it views great.

Thank you;

Use this rotateimages function (replace the existing one):


function rotateimages(){
if(rotateimages.count >= 2) return;
contentcontainer='<center>'
if (variableslide[currentslide][1]!="")
contentcontainer+='<a href="'+variableslide[currentslide][1]+'">'
contentcontainer+='<img src="'+variableslide[currentslide][0]+'" border="0" vspace="3">'
if (variableslide[currentslide][1]!="")
contentcontainer+='</a>'
contentcontainer+='</center>'
if (variableslide[currentslide][2]!="")
contentcontainer+=variableslide[currentslide][2]

if (document.layers){
crossrotateobj.document.write(contentcontainer)
crossrotateobj.document.close()
}
else if (ie||dom)
crossrotateobj.innerHTML=contentcontainer
if (currentslide==variableslide.length-1){
currentslide=0;
rotateimages.count = rotateimages.count? rotateimages.count + 1 : 1;
}
else currentslide++
setTimeout("rotateimages()",slidedelay)
}

Additions (in two spots) are highlighted. The red 2 is the number of times through it will go.
