View Full Version : StepCarousel Preload/dynamic load.

1) Script Title: Step Carousel

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/stepcarousel.htm

3) I am using stepcarousel as sort of a document browser. I have a rather large collection of 'pages' in png format, each image is 800x600 pixels, and the data is loaded locally. I am wondering if there is a way to avoid a long wait when navigating to an initial image from a table of contents. For instance can I either:

a) Once the images are loaded initially, keep them in ram indefinitely, even when the script/page is unloaded.
b) "Dynamically" load the images. that is: if image 'g' is being viewed, load only image d,e,f,g,h,i,j rather than a-z

I'm not too familiar with AJAX, so there are probably options I am not aware with, and I thought I'd ask before I started hacking away.

Thanks for your time.
