Random

I want to be able to use a javascript to display a random image out of a set of 4 on my web page. Anyone know the code for this?

Here you go:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

<!-- Begin
numpics = 4
day = new Date()
z = day.getTime()
y = (z - (parseInt(z/1000,10) * 1000))/10
x = parseInt(y/100*nummidi,10) + 1
if (x == (1))
pic=("pic1.gif")
if (x == (2))
pic=("pic2.gif")
if (x == (3))
pic=("pic3.gif")
if (x == (4))
pic=("pic4.gif")
document.write('<IMG SRC= ' + pic + ' >')
// End -->
</SCRIPT>

If your images are named "pic1.gif" to "pic4.gif" this:
if (x == (1))
pic=("pic1.gif")
if (x == (2))
pic=("pic2.gif")
if (x == (3))
pic=("pic3.gif")
if (x == (4))
pic=("pic4.gif")
Can be replace with this:
pic = "pic" + x + ".gif";

It didn't work. Is there a line that should be in the body to accompany this? Keep in mind I know very little about javascript

<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
function rand(n){
 var now = new Date();
 var seed = now.getTime() % 0xffffffff;
 seed = (0x015a4e35 * seed) % 0x7fffffff;
 return (seed >> 16) % n;
}

function splash(){
 if (document.images) document.images["splash"].src = "img/splash" + rand(4) + ".gif";
}
</script>
<title>Splash Screen Page</title>
</head>
<body bgcolor="#cccc66" topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" onLoad="splash()">
<table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%" height="100%">
 <tr>
  <td align="center" valign="middle" colspan="2">
    <a href="about.html">
<img src="img/bl.gif" alt="splashpicture" width="370" height="370" border="0" name="splash"></a>
  </td>
 </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>
this is very simple... all you do is to place your pictures in a subdir, called img and then name them:
splash0.gif,splash1.gif,splash2.gif,splash3.gif

and then this image tag is the keytag:
<img src="img/bl.gif" alt="splashpicture" width="370" height="370" border="0" name="splash">
first of all the src= points to a blank image, just to have an image then the name "splash" is the one used of the javascript function splash()

if (document.images) document.images["splash"].src = "img/splash" + rand(4) + ".gif";
checks if there is possible to change the image, if it is, then change the image named "splash" into the random splash screen...

hope that helped...

Not exactly what I wanted but it only took 2 small changes to get it to work. Thanks.

no it's not.... you're using this line:

      document.write('<IMG SRC= ' + pic + ' >')

while I'm using dynamic images, then which one of them's best can be discussed...
