Blending Image Slideshow Script

Greetings all. I am very much a js newbie, and have a problem that others may be able to solve with very little effort.

I am using the Blending image Slideshow Script on my site. I need to be able to change the
newwindow value according to the image being displayed. So in some cases I would like to open the link in a new window, in others i would like the link to open in the current window.

I thought that simply setting the
newwindow value as an array:

var newwindow=new Array("0", "1")

would work, but have found Im off base.

I did some forum searching and didnt see any similar threads...any help would be greatly appreicated.

In other words, you're looking for selective link targeting for each image within the slideshow. Sure, simply replace the script of code 1 with the below instead:

<script language="JavaScript1.1">

// Blending Image Slide Show Script-
// Dynamic Drive (www.dynamicdrive.com)
// For full source code, visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com/

//specify interval between slide (in mili seconds)
var slidespeed=3000

//specify images
var slideimages=new Array("test.gif","image2.gif","image3.gif")

//specify link target for each image
var linktargets=new Array("", "_new", "_new")

//specify corresponding links
var slidelinks=new Array("http://www.google.com","http://yahoo.com","http://www.cnn.com")

var imageholder=new Array()
var ie=document.all
for (i=0;i<slideimages.length;i++){
imageholder[i]=new Image()

function gotoshow(){
if (linktargets[whichlink]!="")
window.open(slidelinks[whichlink], linktargets[whichlink])


Customize "var linktargets".
