View Full Version : problem with JS image scroller on Safari & IE 5

Hello,
i have a thumbnail scroller in javascript (1.2) that works fine (on PC and on Mac OSX Safari and IE 5) when i have 4 or 5 thumbnails loaded in, but when there are more than 7 or 8, it starts to do really strange stuff, (the scroller stops moving, an image doesn't appear, etc).

Is it a preload thing or a version thing maybe ?

I'd love any help possible on this.

the page where i'm having trouble can be found by going to http://66.241.249.133/indexpop.cfm, entering the site, and selecting "Eye Candy".


Here's the code:

<script language="JavaScript1.2">

//Specify the slider's width (in pixels)
var sliderwidth="730px"
//Specify the slider's height
var sliderheight="75px"
//Specify the slider's slide speed (larger is faster 1-10)
var slidespeed=2
//configure background color:
slidebgcolor="#ffffff"

//Specify the slider's images example: leftrightslide[0]='<a href="http://"><img src="dynamicbook1.gif" border=1></a>'
//leftrightslide[]='<a href="http://www.imagegallery.cfm" target="iframe"><img src="" border=0></a>'

var leftrightslide=new Array()
var finalslide='.'
<cfoutput query="getimages">
<cfset index = CurrentRow - 1>
leftrightslide[#index#]='<a href="imagegallery.cfm?zimgid=#itemid#" target="iframe"><img src="itemimages/thumbs/#itemthumb#" border="0"></a><img src="graphics/spot.gif" width="10">'
</cfoutput>
