Hi there,

I have a small JAVA applet running at
http://www.infonie.fr/public_html/germann/Index.htm     (please check),
the mouseover effect is used to display gif files at random.
Is it possible to do the same thing with JAVASCRIPT ?

(Note: the Java applet on my page works fine with Netscape3 but doesn't
work with N4)

Thanks,

Juan

Yes it is possible to do exactly the same thing in Javascript.First you must create an array of images which are preloaded and then a random function must pick one of these array entries at random (obviously!!) and then a simple onmouseover with an image displays the results.Here is how to do it:<HEAD>
<TITLE>Random Music</TITLE>
</HEAD>

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript">

image1 = new Image();
image1.src = "image1.gif";
image2 = new Image();
image2.src = "image2.gif";
image3 = new Image();
image3.src = "image3.gif";
image4 = new Image();
image4.src = "image4.gif";

var imageArray = new makeArray('image1', 'image2', 'image3', 'image4');


function makeArray(){
this.length = makeArray.arguments.length
for (var i = 0; i < this.length; i++)
this[i + 1] = makeArray.arguments[i]
}

function randNum (num) {
var now = new Date();
var rand = Math.round(num * Math.cos(now.getTime()));
if (rand < 0) rand = - rand; if (rand == 0) rand++;
return rand;
}

var imgsrc = imageArray[randNum(imageArray.length)]

</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<BODY>


<A HREF="Your-page.html"
      onmouseover = "document.random.src = imgsrc"
      onmouseout = "document.random.src = imgsrc"
>
<IMG SRC="image1.gif" NAME=random BORDER=0></A>

</BODY>

</HTML>Hope this helps
