View Full Version : Resolved Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v2.4 through v2.6.1) loading image and other fixes

As previously reported in:


1) Script Title: Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v2.4 through and including now v2.6.1)

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/fadeinslideshow.htm

3) Describe problem: Since the loading image has no z-index it's always behind the gallerylayers which even when they have no images in them yet, have a background of black and a z-index of 1000 or 999.

Here's the new code, a drop in replacement to 2.6.1:


There were a number of other fixes and minor improvements since then that were later 'lost' (except on my hard drive) when my web space was wiped, and some of the forum attachments were deleted (the first is the one mentioned above, it and all others mentioned below are now included in the attached update to v2.6.1):

//Unofficial Updates: (all March 6 ,2016 - dates below mark their initial working out for version 2.4)
//Sept 2nd, '11 Update for loading image bug see: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?p=260188#post260188
//Sept 4rth '11 Update for initial mouseover bug in some browsers - first image wouldn't show up if mouse was over the show as page loaded
//Sept 13th '11 Update for missing first image bug in IE - added onerror to onload for routine that tests first image before getting underway

//March 7, 2016 Update to prevent taps in most tap capable browsers from activating mouseover pause. Android sometimes still has this problem
// adding this meta tag may help with that: <meta name="viewport" content="user-scalable=yes">

Sorry for the delay in getting around to this, updated the .js file with your version!

Hey, thanks. It's your script after all, and I think I was overreaching before.
