View Full Version : Full Size Pic of Carousel Thumbnail On Same Page Help

In reference to this carousel script


This script is awesome. One thing thought. When you click on an image it opens the full size pic in another window.

What I would like to do it open the full size image on the right side of the page

I have done this with javascript with stationary thumbnails but can't seem to apply it to this script

Basically what I have done is divide the page into a table. It has Two Columns and Two rows like this.

|______________|_________ |
(sorry that diagrtam is so bad )

So the carousel runs in cell "A" and when the thumbnail is clicked the full sized pic appears in cell "B"

(Ideally I'd like to add a text description in cell "C" for each pic but that is another issue) :D

As I said I've done this with stationary thumnails (in what would be cell "A") using an onclick or an onmouse over, and a toggle a description.

But I couldn't get the carousel to work using the onclick or onmouseover.

Any suggestions? As always thanks in advance.

Cool that works great with one issue.

I tried to run the page in

Firefox, Mozilla 1.7.1, Opera, Netscape And K-Meleon and it works fantastic

Here's the glitch

When I run it in IE 5.5 it doesn't work

I get an error message. In the other browsers when I point to the image on the carousel it allows me to click on it. But in IE it doesn't allow that and gives me a javascript error of this

Char: 19
Error: Could not get the cursor property. Invalid Argument
Code: 0

When I look up in my html editor Line Number 134 is this

function C_Stp(){this.style.cursor=this.lnk?"pointer":"default";C_Stppd=true;if(this.pic){document.getElementById('picArea').src=this.pic}}

Character 19 in my editor starts at


Character 19 being the {
In the above line

Any idea?

Strange enough this carousel effect looks a lot worse in IE than all the other browsers.

I just noticed on the example page (listed at top of thread) you get the same error message. Must be something about IE and the effect. Any workaround

That's some ugly code.

function C_Stp() {
if(typeof this.style.cursor != "undefined") this.style.cursor = this.lnk ? "pointer" : "default";
if(this.pic) document.getElementById('picArea').src = this.pic;
}I also don't advise using what I presume is a custom attribute, "pic," to hold the large image's URI.

I think IE5.5 used 'hand' instead of 'pointer'. Not sure how to test out for that and get it to work if that is what the problem is. I wil look into it.

This may get it, works for the version II of the script:

function C_Stp(){this.style.cursor=this.lnk?document.all?"hand":"pointer":"default";C_Stppd=true;if(this.pic){document.getElementById('picArea').src=this.pic}}

It will force some other browsers to use 'hand' but, most of 'em can 'hand'le it.
