Hello,

I have two links (images), first for backward second for forward.

I would linke to change (n) divs back and forward with this two buttons. Example on http://www.otteybypamp.com/en/majcka.asp?menuid=majcka, but there I change only pictures, now I need the layers.

Thank you,
Mitja

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

var DivCount = 3;
var DivCurrent = 1;

function showAnotherDiv(forward)
{
    //first, hide current layer
    document.getElementById("imgDiv"+DivCurrent).style.display = "none";

   
    //then, check forward/backward
    if(forward)
    {
       DivCurrent++;      
       if(DivCurrent > DivCount)
          DivCurrent = 1;
     }
     else
     {
        DivCurrent--;
        if(DivCurrent < 1)
           DivCurrent = DivCount;
     }

     //display new layer
     document.getElementById("ïmgDiv"+DivCurrent).style.display = "block";

}

</SCRIPT>


<DIV ID="imgDiv1" STYLE="display:block"><IMG SRC="image1.jpg"></DIV>
<DIV ID="imgDiv2" STYLE="display:none"><IMG SRC="image2.jpg"></DIV>
<DIV ID="imgDiv3" STYLE="display:none"><IMG SRC="image3.jpg"></DIV>

<IMG SRC="backward.jpg" onClick="javascript:showAnotherDiv(false);">
<IMG SRC="forward.jpg" onClick="javascript:showAnotherDiv(true);">

Good luck with this one!

When i tested that code in IE6, it didn't work, it does work in ns7 though.

a slight modification to the code,  should make it work in both popular browsers ( as follows : )#

The script takes in the div id, as the one to show, if you need more than two divs, you would just 'hide' more of them, in the javascript block, then make visible the one past into the equation

<script language="javascript">
  var visdiv = 'first';
  function SwapDiv(div)
  {
    if (div != visdiv)
      {
      document.getElementById(div).style.visibility='visible';
        document.getElementById(visdiv).style.visibility='hidden';
        visdiv = div;      
      }
  }
</script>

<div id="second" style="position:absolute; top:0px; left:0px; visibility:hidden;">
second div
</div>
<img src="back.gif" width="32" height="32" alt="" border="0" onclick="SwapDiv('first')">
<img src="forward.gif" width="32" height="32" alt="" border="0" onclick="SwapDiv('second')">

you can also replace those rules:
   document.getElementById("imgDiv"+DivCurrent).style.display = "none";
and  
   document.getElementById("imgDiv"+DivCurrent).style.display = "block";

with:

if(document.all)
   document.all("imgDiv"+DivCurrent).style.display = "none";
else
   document.getElementById("imgDiv"+DivCurrent).style.display = "none";

and

if(document.all)
   document.all("imgDiv"+DivCurrent).style.display = "block";
else
   document.getElementById("imgDiv"+DivCurrent).style.display = "block";
