    Cool Tooltip to the the Conveyor Belt slideshow

    How about adding a tooltip to the the Conveyor Belt slideshow script to make it a way cool slideshow.

    Anyone up for it? (it's beyond my skills)

    A simple tool tip can easily be added using the image tag's title attribute, from the demo:
    Code:
    leftrightslide[0]='<a href="http://"><img title="Tool Tip Text Goes Here" src="dynamicbook1.gif" border=1></a>'

    I thought that to add a tooltip it would have to be added to the existing javascript since a tooltip is a javascript generated item but I give your idea a shot with no luck getting it to work.

    Any one up to the challenge?

    My idea works. If you cannot get it to, try working from a fresh demo of the script. Paste in my code (unmodified), from my last post in place of the existing leftrightslide[0] item.

    Still don't know how you just use a Title attribute to create a tooltip on an image since it doesn't work for plan images. But I created a new page using slideshow code and your title=" " attribute and it still does not work. Here's the test page to check the code:

    Do you have a page where you can make a tooltip without javascript??

    I still believe that someone needs to take the challenge to add tooltip code into the slideshow javascript. Anyone?

    Ok, I just tried it on a couple of other computers and it works (same version of IE), but doesn't show on this one.

    Thanks for your help
